Computational Geometry: Young Researchers Forum

Part of the CG Week 2012

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

The 28th Symposium on Computational Geometry (SoCG) will take place June 16-20, 2012 on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. It brings together the global community of researchers who work on a large variety of aspects that combine geometry, algorithms and applications.

Traditionally, the participation and involvement of students in research, discussions, and social events plays a large role. Participation in a top-level event such as SoCG can be educating, motivating, and useful for networking, both with other students and with more senior scientists.

To allow a broad audience to actively participate in the community's major scientific event, this year's Symposium will be accompanied by a series of afternoon events, under the collective title "Computational Geometry: Applications, Practice, and Theory" (CG:APT), which, together with SoCG (whose talks are scheduled for the mornings), will constitute "CG Week 2012".

One of these events will be "Computational Geometry: Young Researchers Forum" (CG:YRF), which aims at current and recent students. Its objective is to let young researchers present their work (in progress as well as finished results) in a friendly, open setting. Just like in the main event, presentations will be given in the form of talks. A pre-screening (but no formal review process) will ensure appropriate quality control.
