Computational Geometry: Young Researchers Forum

June 17-20, 2012, Chapel Hill, NC, USA

Submission Process

We solicit submissions, consisting of an abstract (up to 2 pages), using the provided LaTex submission styles.

In the submitted abstract the authors are expected to provide a concise description of the considered problem, sketch related work, and give an overview of their results.

The final version of the 2-page abstract of the accepted submissions will be part of the informal collection of abstracts, to be distributed at the event.

All submissions should be submitted via easychair: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cgyrf2012. If you do not have an easychair account yet, you have to register first; this is easy and fast, but you may want to take care of this early in order to avoid the last-minute rush.

Formal aspects:

  • The topic must fit into the general context of SoCG, as described in the call for SoCG submissions.
  • Submissions must be in the form of 2-page abstracts in PDF, to be submitted via easychair.
  • Formatting must be according to the provided style file .
  • At least one of the authors must be a current or recent student; this is defined as not having received a formal doctorate before 2010.
  • The idea of the event is to present new and ongoing work. Therefore, abstracts should not have appeared in print in a formally reviewed proceedings volume or journal by the time of submission.
  • The paper must be presented by a co-authoring student during CG:YRF.
  • Accepted abstracts will be compiled in a booklet of abstracts that will be distributed among the participants; however, these should not be considered a formal publication. In particular, participants are encouraged to turn their presented work into a form that can be published in a formal, peer-reviewed context.
  • Please contact Sándor Fekete if there are any remaining questions.
