The Eurographics Symposium on Geometry Processing (SGP) is the premier venue for disseminating new research ideas and cutting-edge results in geometry processing. In this research area, concepts from applied mathematics, computer science, and engineering are used to design efficient algorithms for acquisition, reconstruction, manipulation, simulation and transmission of complex 3D models.

In 2011, SGP will be held in Lausanne, Switzerland, from July 20 to 22. As new features this year, SGP will offer a graduate school on July 18-19 and install a new software award (see below).

We invite submissions related to, but not limited to, the following topics in geometry processing:

  1.     Geometry and topology representations

  2.     Scanning, reconstruction, reverse engineering

  3.     Meshing and remeshing

  4.     Simplification, approximation, level of detail

  5.     Discrete differential geometry

  6.     Smoothing and denoising

  7.     Multiresolution shape analysis and synthesis

  8.     Surface and volume parameterization

  9.     Animation and simulation

  10.     Compression of static or animated geometry

  11.     Robust geometric computing

  12.     Geometry processing applications (e.g. architecture, medicine)

  13.     Interactive techniques

  14.     Geometric aspects of rendering and other fields


The SGP proceedings will appear as a regular issue of Computer Graphics Forum, the International Journal of the EUROGRAPHICS Association. The journal status of the proceedings requires a two-stage review process with conditional acceptance after the first round and final acceptance based on the revised submissions.


A poster session will provide an additional informative look into ongoing research. Submissions with high potential but which have not been accepted as papers will be invited to be presented in a poster session during the symposium.

New This Year: Graduate School

There will be a two-day tutorial on geometry processing from July 18-19, specifically targeted towards graduate students. The courses will be taught by leading experts in the field and complemented by hands-on practical exercises to obtain an in-depth knowledge of the most important aspects of digital geometry processing.

New This Year: Software Award

To encourage the distribution of useful, high quality software in geometry processing, we are instituting an award for freely available software related to or useful for geometry processing. Please send nominations and applications for the software award to
