Call for papers

The XVI Spanish Meeting on Computational Geometry will be held on July 1-3, 2015, at the Faculty of Mathematics and Statistics, Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain. The main focus of this international conference is on current topics in Discrete and Computational Geometry, including both theoretical and applied results. EGC started in 1990, making this edition, 25 years later, a special occasion. 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;
  • 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 systems, multimedia and animation, wireless communications, computer algebra, computational topology, statistical analysis, operations research, computational biology, etc.

The language of the conference is English, yet occasional submissions/presentations in Spanish may be exceptionally considered.

We invite authors to submit extended abstracts that should not exceed 4 pages of original research. In order to guarantee that submissions are in scope and not below basic standards, there will be a limited review process. An appendix can be added as help for the reviewers and is required when necessary to verify omitted proofs of critical claims. Submission details will be available at the paper submission section on this website.

We remark that XVI ECG will have neither formally reviewed proceedings nor printed abstracts. The abstracts, without ISBN, will be made available on the conference website (appendices excluded), and must be regarded as a collection of preprints rather than a formally reviewed selection of papers.

Papers that have just been submitted to journals or to formally reviewed conferences are eligible for being presented at XVI ECG, assuming that it is allowed by those venues and they have not appeared by the time of the conference. Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their papers at the conference. Failure to do so will result in removal of the contribution everywhere in the website.

Special Issue

Authors of selected contributions will be invited to submit a full version of their work to a special issue of the International Journal of Computational Geometry and Applications.


Rooms have been reserved at three different university residences, at a special rate. You will have the chance to book a room in one of them when you fill in the registration form. Important: the number of rooms reserved is limited! The sooner you register, the higher the chance to find a place at the residence of your choice. Once all the rooms we have reserved are booked, attendants will have to search accommodation by themselves. Registration and accommodation reservation will open on March 23, 2015.
