A Message from the Conference Organizers...

Dear Colleagues:

Welcome to Nashville and the Fifth SIAM Conference on Geometric Design, sponsored by the SIAM Activity Group on Geometric Design.

The program includes 8 invited presentations, 9 minisymposia on topics of special current interest, 6 focus sessions with an emphasis on audience participation, 9 contributed sessions, and a poster session. While it will still be difficult to choose, this time there are never more than two simultaneous sessions.

The success of this meeting depends on you, the participant. You can help make it a success by actively participating in the discussions and attending the poster session (which will include refreshments, and two prizes for the best presentations).

Remember the evening events: the welcoming party on Sunday, the BBQ/Country Music blowout on Tuesday, and the poster session and reception followed by the SIAG/GD business meeting on Wednesday.

Many thanks to the members of the organizing committee for their help in planning and organizing this conference, and to all of you who are making presentations, moderating focus sessions, or chairing contributed sessions.

See you in Nashville!

Tony DeRose and Larry Schumaker
Co-chairs, Conference Organizing Committee
