Computational Geometry Week, including ACM SoCG 2012, June 17-20, in Chapel Hill, NC, USA

(welcome reception on June 16, 2012.)

The 28th Annual ACM Symposium on Computational Geometry is planned for June 17-20, 2012 on the beautiful campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  Most events will be held in and around the conjoined Brooks Building/Sitterson Hall, which is located directly across from the Carolina Inn.


This year we are pleased to announce an expanded set of events that will be co-located with the 28th Annual ACM Symposium on Computational Geometry (SoCG), hosted at UNC Chapel Hill, June 17-20, 2012. The activities span 4 full days (Sun-Wed), with an initial welcome reception on Saturday evening, June 16. Mornings will be devoted to SoCG paper presentations; afternoons will be devoted to activities that collectively go under the title Computational Geometry: Applications, Practice, and Theory (CG:APT). Together, these activities constitute “CG Week 2012”.  See the schedule page (also in downloadable pdf form)

Because the schedule is packed, we are providing lunches (except for Tuesday, where we provide the dinner), so come to be fed in body and mind.
