Aim and Scope

The Second Annual SAGA School will take place on 4-8 October 2010, at Kolympari, Greece. It is preceded by the First SAGA Review Meeting. Both events are in the framework of the EU Marie-Curie Training Network SAGA (Shapes, Geometry, and Algebra). The School includes

  • Tutorial presentations,
  • Industrial talks, and
  • Open Problem sessions

in Computer-Aided Geometric Design and related fields (more info under Program). It also includes a Poster Session where all participants can present their work. We welcome external participants, and shall be able to support financially the participation of a certain number of researchers from outside the Network (see Participation).

The School aims at supporting the exchange of ideas between the fields of Geometric Modeling, Algebraic Geometry, and Numerical Analysis. Topics of interest include:

  • Geometry of curves and surfaces
  • Rational/implicit representation
  • Resultant constructions and implicitization
  • Singularities: detection and analysis
  • Curves and surfaces classification
  • Intersection problems
  • Approximate and/or certified methods
  • Computer implementations of Algorithmic algebraic geometry
  • Isogeometric Analysis
