The 8th Dagstuhl seminar was attended by 51 leading researchers coming from 4 continents and 21 countries (!). A total of 45 presentations were grouped together into 12 sessions and let a lot of room for stimulating and fruitful discussions in the harmonic Dagstuhl atmosphere.

Geometric Modeling is the branch of Computer Science concerned with the acquisition, representation, modeling and analysis of 3-dimensional geometry. While its combination of technically complex and often interdisciplinary approaches is grounded both in applied mathematics and computer science data structures and theory, applications of the field therefore cover a wide collection of areas from classical product design, virtual prototyping and simulation to computer graphics, scientific visualization, medical imaging, multimedia and entertainment. It is therefore fitting that the seminar was attended 7 leading scientists and engineers from industry.

The presentations ranged from surface reconstruction, GPU programming, to curve and surface modeling with classical splines, surface meshes and new subdivision methods based on algebraic and differential geometry methods with applications in medical or architectural modeling and in videao and gaming industry. As with all previous Dagstuhl Seminars on Geometric Modeling, the conference proceedings will be published as a special issue in an international journal.

A special event during the conference was the John Gregory Memorial Award honoring Carl de Boor, Malcolm Sabin and Gershon Elber. This award is presented every three years at Dagstuhl and honors fundamental contributions to the field of geometric modeling.

The organizers thank all the attendees for their contributions and extend special thanks to the team of Schloss Dagstuhl for helping to make this workshop a success. As always, we enjoyed the warm atmosphere of the Schloss, which supports both formal presentations as well as informal exchanges of ideas.

Dagstuhl's Impact

Bitte informieren Sie uns, wenn eine Veröffentlichung ausgehend von Ihrem Seminar entsteht. Derartige Veröffentlichungen werden von uns in der Rubrik Dagstuhl's Impact separat aufgelistet  und im Erdgeschoss der Bibliothek präsentiert.


Es besteht weiterhin die Möglichkeit, eine umfassende Kollektion begutachteter Arbeiten in der Reihe Dagstuhl Follow-Ups zu publizieren.
