An Invitation to Attend and Register

Sixth SIAM Conference on Geometric Design, Nov 2-5, 1999, Sheraton Old Town Hotel, Albuquerque, New Mexico

About the Conference...

The application of geometry to current problems of design, manufacturing, and the representation of physical phenomena continues to grow.

The Sixth SIAM Conference on Geometric Design will address the most important recent advances in curve and surface design, geometrical algorithms, solid modeling, and applications in the traditional fields of automobile and aircraft manufacturing, and general product design. Contributions to more modern fields, including scientific visualization, medical imaging, computer vision, robotics, and digital movie making will also be discussed.

The conference will bring together computer scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and researchers and scientists from academia, government, and industry as well as anyone interested in applying computational and mathematical methods to problems of geometric design or in any of the many applications.

Conference Themes

The major themes include, but are not limited to:
Curve and surface design Reverse engineering
Geometric modeling Solid modeling
Visualization Computational geometry
Computer graphics Multiresolution methods
Manufacturing geometry Mesh processing

Mission Statement

The SIAM Activity Group on Geometric Design is concerned with the mathematical and computational issues that arise in generating and processing geometric information for various engineering applications, such as mechanical design, process planning, and manufacturing. The scope of the group's activities encompasses a wide spectrum of scientific, technological, and other skills, ranging from rigorous mathematics to the subjective aesthetics of shape.

Funding Agency

SIAM and the Organizing Committee wish to extend their thanks and appreciation to the National Science Foundation for its partial support of this conference.

About Albuquerque

Step into 300 years of history and culture...take a walk through history around Albuquerque's Old Town Plaza, which has been the focal point of community life since 1706. Old town has been the crossroads of the Southwest. It is a historic zone of the city of Albuquerque and is home to art galleries, stores and boutiques specializing in Southwestern jewelry and crafts, adobe architecture, and world-class museums. And, of course, savor the inviting Southwest cooking. Explore Albuquerque! Come to the conference!
