Sponsored by the SIAM Activity Group on Geometric Design (SIAG/GD).

This meeting is being held jointly with the 2017 SIAM Annual Meeting (AN17), July 10-14, and the SIAM Conference on Control and Its Applications (CT17), July 10-12.

This meeting is co-located with the SIAM Workshop on Parameter Space Dimension Reduction (DR17), July 9-10, and the SIAM Workshop on Network Science (NS17), July 13-14.


Statement on Inclusiveness

As a professional society, SIAM is committed to providing an inclusive climate that encourages the open expression and exchange of ideas, that is free from all forms of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation, and that is welcoming and comfortable to all members and to those who participate in its activities. In pursuit of that commitment, SIAM is dedicated to the philosophy of equality of opportunity and treatment for all participants regardless of gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion or religious belief, age, marital status, disabilities, veteran status, field of expertise, or any other reason not related to scientific merit. This philosophy extends from SIAM conferences, to its publications, and to its governing structures and bodies. We expect all members of SIAM and participants in SIAM activities to work towards this commitment.



Mobile App
A mobile app for the SIAM Conference on Industrial and Applied Geometry (GD17) is available for download. Plug into your browser. The link will automatically detect the type of device and take you to the right place to download the app. It can also be viewed in HTML5 if you connect using your computer. You will be requested to set up an account to use the mobile app. This will allow you to share your calendar of show events across devices. You can then select SIAM Annual Meeting (AN17) joint with CT17 and GD17 from the list of 2017 SIAM events on the app or mobile site to view the schedule, browse speakers, attendees and exhibitors, view maps and building layouts, sync events with your mobile calendar, create your own show by selecting specific sessions, and more!

To view just the AN17 sessions, CT17 sessions or the GD17 sessions, use the filter in the upper right when the schedule is open and select either AN17, CT17, or GD17. The filter can also be used to specify what kinds of sessions you wish to view.

SIAM’s conference on industrial and applied geometry is motivated by the overlapping industrial and academic interest in geometry. Encouragement of industrial, government and academic collaboration is a major objective of this conference. This conference provides an opportunity for industrial and government engineers and scientists to communicate their needs and for academic researchers to exhibit their current research.

Graduate students whether trying to decide between academic and nonacademic careers or looking for real world applications for their research and should attend this conference.

This conference will be of interest to anyone interested in applying computational and mathematical methods to problems with a geometric aspect such as applications in medicine, geosciences, biology, architecture, art as well as traditional areas on engineering and science. These areas include but are not limited to mechanical, electrical, chemical, civil and engineering, physics and chemistry. Examples of topics in these areas include CAX, curve and surface design, geometric algorithms, reverse engineering, solid modeling, computer vision, graphics, robotics, and scientific visualization. This conference will facilitate communication among academic, industrial and governmental users and developers of mathematics and sortware stimulated by problems having significant geometric content.


Funding Agencies

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