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.

The purpose of this conference is to bring together researchers from academia, industry, and government to discuss the mathematical and computational problems associated with the application of geometry to current problems of design, manufacturing, and the representation and analysis of physical phenomena.

The conference will be of interest to computer scientists, engineers, and mathematicians from academia, government, and industry, as well as anyone interested in applying computational and mathematical methods to problems and applications of a geometrical nature, such as applications in medicine, biology, architecture, art, and other areas.

Funding Agency

SIAM and the conference organizing committee wish to extend their thanks
and appreciation to the U. S. National Science Foundation for its support
