Dagstuhl-Seminar-Report 17


The first Dagstuhl - seminar on Geometric Modelling was organized by Gerald Farin (Arizona State University), Hans Hagen (Universität Kaiserslautem) and Hartmut Noltemeier (Universität Würzburg). It was a pleasure to note the international acclaim the seminar has found, the 37 participants came from 7 countries and 9 of them came from industry.

Lectures were given at the seminar, covering practically all important aspects of geometric modelling :

  • solid modelling
  • geometry processing
  • feature modelling
  • product modelling
  • surfacepatches over arbitrary topologies
  • blending methods in CAD
  • scattered data algorithms
  • multisurfaces
  • smoothing and fairing algorithms

The discussion between industry and university has proven to be very fruitful. The scientists from industry were able to give many important and practible impulses for new research; in the opposite direction the university researchers have developed many new technologies, solving industrial problems, which may be transfered back to industry.
Everybody was impressed by the quality of the presentations; they acknowledged the importance of such research exchange between the various partners.
