SoCG 2010 Call for Papers

The call for papers for SoCG 2010 just went out. It's in Utah, and Suresh is one of the local organizers. Plus, last I heard I'll be helping out with a student-only get to meet each other event. So you have just under two months to solve a problem and write a paper! Since it looks like the call hasn't appeared on the website yet, I'm including the basic details below:

26th Annual Symposium on Computational Geometry (SoCG 2010)
June 13-16, 2010
Snowbird, Utah, USA
In cooperation with ACM SIGACT and SIGGRAPH

The Twenty-sixth Annual Symposium on Computational Geometry will be held at Snowbird, Utah. We invite submissions of high-quality papers, videos, and multimedia presentations describing original research addressing computational problems in a geometric setting, in particular their algorithmic solutions, implementation issues, applications, and mathematical foundations.

The topics of the Symposium reflect the rich diversity of research interests in computational geometry. They are intended to highlight both the depth and scope of computational geometry, and to invite fruitful interactions with other disciplines. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* design, analysis, and implementation of geometric algorithms and data structures; lower bounds on the computational complexity of geometric problems;
* mathematical, numerical, and algebraic issues arising in the formulation, analysis, implementation, and experimental evaluation of geometric algorithms and heuristics; discrete and combinatorial geometry; computational topology;
* novel algorithmic applications of geometry in computer graphics, geometric modeling, computer-aided design and manufacturing, scientific computing, geographic information systems, database systems, robotics, computational biology, machine learning, sensor networks, medical imaging, combinatorial optimization, statistical analysis, discrete differential geometry, theoretical computer science, graph drawing, pure mathematics, and other fields.

----- Important Dates -----

* November 23, 2009: Paper titles and (short) abstracts due
* December 02, 2009: Full submissions due (23:59, Honolulu time)
* February 15, 2010: Notification of acceptance/rejection of papers
* February, 19, 2010: Video and multimedia submissions due
* March 01, 2010: Notification of acceptance or rejection of video/multimedia submissions
* March 15, 2010: Camera-ready papers and video/multimedia abstracts due
* April 20, 2010: Final versions of video/multimedia presentations due
* June 13-16, 2010: Symposium at Snowbird, Utah

----- Local Arrangements Co-Chairs ------

* Valerio Pascucci (University of Utah)
* Suresh Venkatasubramanian (University of Utah)


We invite submissions of high-quality papers describing original research on geometric algorithms and data structures, their mathematical foundations and correctness, their implementation, and their applications.

The program committee explicitly encourages the submission of video or multimedia in support of submitted papers. Authors may wish to consider making a separate submission to the video/multimedia track (see the guidelines below). Papers and video/multimedia submissions will be reviewed separately; acceptance or rejection of one will not influence acceptance or rejection of the other.

Final versions of accepted papers will be published by ACM in the symposium proceedings. Proceedings will be distributed to symposium participants and will also be available from ACM for purchase or through the digital library. An author of each accepted paper will be expected to attend the Symposium and give a presentation (approximately 20 minutes) of the paper. Authors of a selection of papers from the conference will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers to a special issue of one or more journals.
