CG Week 2015

Location: TU Eindhoven, The Netherlands
Date: 22-25 June 2015
Organizers: Prof.dr. M. van Kreveld and Prof.dr. B. Speckmann
Number of participants: 206



The Computational Geometry Week (CG Week 2015) was held from 22 to 25 June 2015, at the Technical University  Eindhoven in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. The event consisted of: 

  • The 31st International Symposium on Computational Geometry
  • The 24th Multimedia Exposition in Computational Geometry,
  • The 4th Young Researchers Forum
  • Four associated workshops


The topics of the Symposium reflect the rich diversity of research interests in computational geometry. They are intended to highlight both the depth and scope of computational geometry, and to invite fruitful interactions with other disciplines.


In 2015 SOCG was for the first time organized as an independent conference.



CG Week featured two invited presentations, given by Ben Green and Susanne Albers. The invited speakers gave plenary lectures for all participants, and the best paper of the submitted ones was also a plenary talk. Furthermore, the Multimedia session and the pitches for the Young Researchers Forum were plenary. All other presentations and the workshops were in two or three parallel sessions.


As a part of CG Week, a Workshop on Geometric Networks was held, with Mark de Berg (TU Eindhoven), Prosenjit Bose (Carleton University) and Matthew Katz (Ben-Gurion University) as organizers. The workshop focused on two aspects of geometric networks:


  • Stochastic aspects of geometric networks 
  • Applied aspects of geometric networks, in particular sensor networks.

The workshop featured two invited talks: one by Gabor Lugosi from Pompeu Fabra University (Connectiv- ity properties of random bluetooth networks), the other by Roger Wattenhofer from ETH Zürich (Wireless networks: Do not disturb my circles). Besides these invited talks, there were eight other presentations and an open problem session.
