Geometric Algebra in Computer Science and Engineering Workshop – GACSE’16

Call for Papers

Since ACM SIGGRAPH2001 and 2003 conferences, there has been limited attention on the benefits of employing geometric algebra (GA) in solving computer graphics and vision problems. In the meantime, the geometric algebra community focused on GA applications and advanced it as an adequate and viable computing technology. The CGI’16 “Geometric Algebra in Computer Science and Engineering Workshop“on June 28th 2016 aims to contribute in bridging that gap. Under the auspices of CGI’16, GACSE engages in a novel multi-disciplinary approach from mathematics, to computer graphics, computer vision and general computer science fields where GA could provide novel answers to existing mathematical problems.

We invite original contributors in the form of full and short papers, that advance the state-of-the-art of the application of geometric algebra as well as of its computing technology in topics related, but not limited to:

  • Full application of the conformal model to object description, modeling, deformations, registration, manipulation, interaction, tracking, camera systems
  • Computer graphics rendering
  • Computer animation and simulation
  • Augmented and Virtual Reality
  • Application of Clifford analysis to lighting schemes,
  • Application of Clifford Fourier transforms and Clifford wavelets to 2D and 3D images, including color images
  • Higher dimensional geometric algebras
  • GA integrations in programming languages
  • GA hardware implementations
  • Other engineering/applied science applications using GA

Full Papers (10-15 pages): Information for the submission process and formatting instructions for the full papers is provided here. The accepted full length GACSE papers will be published with Springer Advances in Applied Clifford Algebras journal (AACA) and will have to be orally presented at the conference. Online submission will become available from 01 January 2016 here . At the time of submission in the menu “Choose article type” the option “S. I. : Geometric Algebra in Computer Science and Engineering” has to be selected.

Short Papers: All the authors of accepted short papers will be invited either to an oral presentation or to a poster presentation. The accepted CGI’16 GACSE short papers will be published by the ACM Digital Library within its International Conference Proceedings Series. For author instructions for the short papers please refer here.

Extended versions of the highest ranked short papers of the workshop proceedings will be invited for publication by the Springer Advances in Applied Clifford Algebras journal.
