Call for papers

The XVIII Spanish Meeting on Computational Geometry will be held on July 1-3, 2019, at the auditorium of the Escola Politècnica Superior of the University of Girona, Girona, Spain. The main focus of this international conference is on current topics in Discrete and Computational Geometry, including both theoretical and applied results. This series of meetings started in 1990. The intended audience for this conference includes graduate and undergraduate students, researchers in the area or from neighboring disciplines, and members of industry whose work involves geometric algorithms. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • geometric algorithms and data structures
  • discrete and combinatorial geometry and topology
  • theoretical foundations of computational geometry
  • questions of interest in the implementation of geometric algorithms and geometric software development
  • applications of computational geometry, and closely related areas, such as computer graphics, virtual reality, robotics, computer vision, simulation and visualization, solid modelling, computer aided design and manufacturing, pattern recognition, graph drawing and circuit layout, image processing, geographic information science, multimedia and animation, wireless communications, computer algebra, computational topology, statistical analysis, operations research, computational biology, etc.

The language of the conference is English, hence all international colleagues are welcome to join.


(see the deadlines in the Important dates section)

New in this edition, we will accept two types of submissions:

  • Paper submissions.
    Each paper submission should consist of an extended abstract of up to 4 pages of original research. Authors are encouraged to add an appendix with additional details, or even a full version of the paper, which will be reviewed by the program committee at their discretion to verify claims whose proofs do not fit in the 4-page abstract. Papers that have recently been submitted to journals or other conferences are eligible for submission to EGC, assuming that it is allowed by those venues and they have not been published by the time of the conference.
  • Talk submissions (new!).
    Each talk submission will consist of an abstract of 1 page describing original research presented in the proposed talk. This may involve ongoing research or a result published recently (with the first publication dated in 2018 or later). If the work has appeared previously, please provide a reference to the publication.

Abstracts of accepted papers and talks will be collected in a booklet that will be accessible from the conference website. No printed version will be available. Presentations of accepted papers and talks will be allocated the same amount of time in the program (approximately 15-25 minutes).

All submissions (of both papers and talks) will be reviewed by the program committee in order to guarantee that they are in scope and meet quality standards.

Submission instructions will be available at the Submissions section on the conference website.

Authors of accepted submissions are expected to present their work at the conference. Failure to do so will result in removal of the contribution from the abstract booklet and conference website.
