                     Intensive Research Program on
           Discrete, Combinatorial and Computational Geometry
               April 16 – June 8, 2018 - Barcelona, Spain

                         CALL FOR PARTICIPATION


- Registration is open at http://dccg.upc.edu/irp2018.

- The deadline to apply for accommodation grants is November 15, 2017.


The program will consist of 8 weeks of activities focused on hot topics
in discrete, combinatorial and computational geometry.
It has been designed to be interesting to researchers at all career
stages, by combining learning opportunities and research collaboration
chances in problems of theoretical nature in combinatorial and discrete
geometry, algorithmic problems from computational geometry, and
implementation issues in specialized software.
