UNB/ CS/ David Bremner/ research/ Special Issue of CGTA on Geometric Aspects of Optimization

In an effort to promote interaction between the Computational Geometry and Optimization research communities, we are editing a special issue of Computational Geometry: Theory and Applications (CGTA) on Geometric Aspects of Optimization

In the last 25 years, computational geometry has become very good at dealing with enormous numbers of input objects, but still faces many challenges in high dimensional settings. Techniques from optimization, although typically slower for many objects in small dimensions, are usually more effective in the face of many variables/dimensions.

On the other hand, the geometric and combinatorial approach that is central to computational geometry has led to important insights in optimization, particularly in algorithms for linear programming.

Original papers with a geometric and algorithmic flavour are invited on topics including, but not limited to:

All submissions will be refereed following the usual high standards of the journal. Papers should be submitted using the CGTA electronic submission system

Under "Issue", please select "GeomOpt10" and, under "Suggesting Editor", please select "SpecialIssueEditors GeomOpt10"

To ensure consideration for the special issue, please submit by July 1, 2010

Every effort will be made to ensure the timeliness of the special issue; in addition papers in the special issue will appear on-line as soon as accepted.
