CGWeek 2022 will take place on June 12-15, 2023, anchored by the 39th International Symposium on Computational Geometry (SoCG). SoCG brings together a global community of researchers working on a large variety of topics that combine geometry, topology, algorithms, and applications.

To allow a broad audience to participate actively in the community's major scientific event, a series of half-day events will be organized throughout CGWeek. Some of these events are workshops on topics related to all aspects of computational geometry and its applications.

Important Dates

  • 27 January 2023: Intent-to-submit requested (not required)
  • 17 February 2023: Workshop proposals due
  • 24 February 2023: Notification of acceptance
  • 12-15 June 2023: CGWeek

Conference web page


Typical events feature some number of invited speakers and/or contributed talks. Note that we encourage organizers to consider posting an open call for contributed talks, in addition to having specific invited speakers, in order to broaden CGWeek participation and attendance. Workshop organizers are encouraged to start their workshop with an overview presentation of the state-of-the-art, accessible for the usual audience of CGWeek, before featuring more specialized talks. Events may include other forms of presentations, such as software demos, panel discussions, industry forums, tutorials, posters, videos, implementation challenges, or artwork. Discussion among workshop participants is encouraged. CGWeek workshops will have no formal proceedings. Optionally, the organizers may coordinate with journals to publish special issues, or arrange for other dissemination (via arXiv, webpages, or printed booklets, for example). We expect most events to last one morning or afternoon (3-4 hours), but some events may extend across two half-days.

CGWeek 2023 is planned as an in-person event in Dallas. Some allowances may be made for online participation by workshop participants, subject to the policies of CGWeek as described on the conference registration page, which includes registration for CGWeek.

Possible Topics

We invite proposals for events focusing on all topics of potential interest to the computational geometry community. For examples of previous CGWeek workshops, please refer to the conference websites for 2012-2022, accessible from the Computational Geometry Pages.


We anticipate that CGWeek workshops will be operated at low cost. In particular, CGWeek does not have a budget to support invited workshop speakers, and workshop speakers are expected to register for CGWeek. However, each workshop may apply to the CG Workshop chairs (with final approval granted by local organizers), for registration fee to be waived for one workshop participant (e.g., an invited speaker), provided they make a convincing argument that this benefit is essential to enable the corresponding person to attend. For example, this could be used to invite a local person who is not primarily in computational geometry or topology, and hence is unlikely to attend the rest of the conference. Moreover, workshop organizers may provide, from their own grants or from other sponsors, a budget for invited speakers. CGWeek organizers will provide organizational assistance, including registration, meeting rooms at the CGWeek venue, coffee breaks, wireless network, and a link to the web page of the event.

Submission Format

For planning purposes, prospective workshop organizers are requested (but not required) to notify the Steering Committee (as workshop organizers) of their intent to submit a proposal by January 27, 2023.

Formal proposals should be submitted by email to the SC (at [email protected]), by February 17, 2023. Informal enquiries may be directed to the SC chairs, Anne Driemel ([email protected]) and Sándor Fekete ([email protected]). Proposals should be brief (at most 3 typeset pages) and should include the following information:
