Call for papers
XVIII Spanish Meeting on Computational Geometry
Girona, Spain, July 1-3, 2019

The XVIII Spanish Meeting on Computational Geometry (EGC) will be held 
on July 1-3, 2019, at the auditorium of the Escola Politècnica Superior 
of the University of Girona, Girona, Spain. The main focus of this 
international conference is on current topics in Discrete and 
Computational Geometry, including both theoretical and applied results. 
This series of meetings started in 1990. The intended audience for this 
conference includes graduate and undergraduate students, researchers in 
the area or from neighboring disciplines, and members of industry whose 
work involves geometric algorithms. Topics include, but are not limited to:

- geometric algorithms and data structures;
- discrete and combinatorial geometry and topology;
- theoretical foundations of computational geometry;
- questions of interest in the implementation of geometric algorithms 
and geometric software development;
- applications of computational geometry, and closely related areas, 
such as computer graphics, virtual reality, robotics, computer vision, 
simulation and visualization, solid modelling, computer aided design and 
manufacturing, pattern recognition, graph drawing and circuit layout, 
image processing, geographic information science, multimedia and 
animation, wireless communications, computer algebra, computational 
topology, statistical analysis, operations research, computational 
biology, etc.

The language of the conference is English, hence all international 
colleagues are welcome to join.

New in this edition, we will accept two types of submissions:

1) Paper submissions

Each paper submission should consist of an extended abstract of up to 4 
pages of original research. Authors are encouraged to add an appendix 
with additional details, or even a full version of the paper, which will 
be reviewed by the program committee at their discretion to verify 
claims whose proofs do not fit in the 4-page abstract.

Papers that have recently been submitted to journals or other 
conferences are eligible for submission to EGC, assuming that it is 
allowed by those venues and they have not been published by the time of 
the conference.

2) Talk submissions (new!)

Each talk submission should consist of an abstract of 1 page describing 
original research presented in the proposed talk. This may involve 
ongoing research or a result published recently (with the first 
publication dated in 2018 or later). If the work has appeared 
previously, please provide a reference to the publication.

Abstracts of accepted papers and talks will be collected in a booklet 
that will be accessible from the conference website. No printed version 
will be available. Presentations of accepted papers and talks will be 
allocated the same amount of time in the program (approximately 15-25 

All submissions (of both papers and talks) will be reviewed by the 
program committee in order to guarantee that they are in scope and meet 
quality standards.

Submission instructions will be available at the paper submission 
section on the conference website.

Authors of accepted submissions are expected to present their work at 
the conference. Failure to do so will result in removal of the 
contribution from the abstract booklet and conference website.
