Algebraic Geometry and Geometric Modeling

27-28-29 September 2004, Nice, France.

Salle de conférence, Lab. J.A. Dieudonné, Dép. de Mathématiques, Parc Valrose

Organizers: M. Elkadi, A. Galligo, B. Mourrain, R. Piene , F.O. Schreyer

The aim of this workshop is to present new results, algorithms, developments or applications of effective algebraic geometry in Geometric Modeling. On the one hand, Algebraic Geometry has developed an impressive theory targeting the understanding of geometric objects defined algebraically. On the other hand, Geometric Modeling is using every day, in practical and difficult problems, virtual shapes based on algebraic models. Could these two domains benefit from each other ? Recent and interesting developments in this direction are about to convince us to answer yes. The workshop will try to reinforce the natural bridge which exists between these two areas, expecting as a result, a better analysis of the key problems and of the related approaches. A non-exhaustive list of topics includes

The meeting will be held in the spirit of a similar workshop in Vilnius 2002. A special emphasis will be given on applications of algebraic methods in Computer Aided Geometric Design. It will take place at Nice University, Valrose Parc. It is connected to: and by INRIA.

The publication of proceedings after the conference is planned.
