Call For Papers of IGA&Mesh 2018

The International Symposium on Isogeometric Analysis and Mesh Generation will take place in Dalian, China, August 3-5, 2018. The symposium will offer a valuable opportunity for researchers to present their latest research findings, ideas, developments and applications in isogeometric analysis and meshing. It consists of invited and contributed presentations dealing with all aspects of IGA and Meshing. In addition, it includes keynote presentations given by Tomas Hughes, Tom Sederberg, Herbert Edelsbrunner, Konrad Polthier, Michael Scott and other world renowned researchers in the field. For more information, please visit

The symposium covers a range of topics on the fundamental theories, numerical schemes, algorithmic design and practical applications of Isogeometric Analysis, advanced Mesh Generation in the context of Computer-Aided Geometric Design, Digital Geometric Processing, Computational Geometry, Computer Aided Engineering, Computational Mechanics and related research fields. The topics range from discrete geometric theories, mesh generation algorithms, to real applications in manufacture industry. The list of suggested topics includes but is not limited to:

  • Isogeometric Analysis
  • Volumetric Spline Fitting
  • Surface Spline Fitting
  • Extraordinary Point Analysis
  • Quad-Mesh Generation
  • Hex-Mesh Generation
  • Unstructured Mesh Generation
  • Topological Optimization
  • Geometry processing applications
  • Surface parameterization
  • Shape modelling applications
  • Shape matching and comparison
  • Dynamic Surface Tracking
  • Shape analysis and retrieval
  • Applications to Computer Graphics
  • Applications to Computational Geometry
  • Application to Computer Vision
  • Applications to Medicine (e.g., brain and neuro-image analysis)

Extended Abstracts should be submitted electronically through the EasyChair system. Both original research papers and excellent works published in top journals are welcomed. For each accepted extended abstract, at least one author is required to register and attend the symposium. Among all the papers presented in the symposium, some will be selected and invited for submission to special issues of some prestigious journals (Graphical Models & Computer Aided Geometric Design). These papers must contain novel results that have been neither reported before nor concurrently submitted to other journal or conference with proceedings.

Submissions are limited to four (4) single-column pages in the elsarticle latex format. This includes figures, but excludes references and an optional appendix (to be read at the program committee's discretion).
