CG Week

The Computational Geometry Week (CG Week 2016) is the premier international forum for advances in computational geometry and its many applications. The next edition will take place in Boston, MA, June 14-18, 2016.
CG week combines a number of events, most notably the 32nd International Symposium on Computational Geometry (SoCG 2016), the associated multimedia exposition, workshops, and the Young Researchers Forum. This year CG week includes a workshop in honor of Bernard Chazelle's 60th birthday (see details on the Workshops page).

CG Week 2016 will be co-located with STOC, the 48th Annual Symposium on the Theory of Computing, which will take place June 19-21, 2016. June 18 will be a special joint day, SoCG meets STOC, featuring a day-long program of invited talks and workshops.

2016 is the second year that SoCG is organized as an independent conference. Please see the Computational Geometry Pages for details on the community's decision.

SoCG 2016 attracted 210 participants, including 107 young researchers which probably breaks the record for highest percentage of y.r. attendance. These numbers do not include 15 more participants who just attended BC60.

Thanks to our sponsors, we were able to offer registration fee waivers to all young researchers. 97 accepted and 10 declined. Besides offering free registration, nearly $25K was available to cover accommodation and transportation expenses of young researchers, bringing the total amount of student funding to $43,500. Some additional support was available for non-student workshop speakers as well.

This was the first year where registration fees included a contribution to the CG fund, at $25 per person. The total amount going into the fund is $5,250.
