Geometric Modeling is an area drawing from computer science, mathematics,

engineering, and the life sciences. It is concerned with the computer

representation of objects as diverse as

- brain scans

- mathematical functions

- terrains

- airplane wings

and many more.

The seminar succeeded in bringing together leading researchers to present

and discuss radically different approaches to the challenge of modeling

complex geometric phenomena on the computer.

Acquisition, representation and analysis of 3-dimensional geometry

call for the combination of technically complex and often

interdisciplinary approaches that are grounded both in classical mathematics

and computer science data structures and theory.
