ABOUT THE CONFERENCE - OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT We are glad to announce that ICGG 2018, the 18th International Conference on Geometry and Graphics, will be held at the Politecnico di Milano on August 3-7, 2018. It will start with Opening Ceremony at the Triennale di Milano, and will end with Closing Ceremony at the Museo Nazionale della Scienza e della Tecnologia Leonardo da Vinci. The Conference is organized biannually at different venues around the world, under the auspices of the International Society for Geometry and Graphics (ISGG). The spectrum ranges from fundamental research to geometric real-world applications, and education. Therefore, the conference aims at providing a forum for presentation and discussion of both academic and industrial research involving theoretical and applied geometry and graphics as well as other related fields. The 18th edition is organized at the Politecnico di Milano, by the Department of Architecture and Urban Studies DASTU. Politecnico di Milano is an academic community dealing with Architecture, Urban Studies, Engineering, and Design, then the Conference scope is deeply consistent with its cultural goals. Pure and applied, analogue and digital Geometry and Graphics are, indeed, of the greatest importance in our research/education activities and curricula, providing our basic operational language and supporting our specialized disciplinary semantics. The official language is English.

Abstract

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE - OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT We are glad to announce that ICGG 2018, the 18th International Conference on Geometry and Graphics, will be held at the Politecnico di Milano on August 3-7, 2018. It will start with Opening Ceremony at the Triennale di Milano, and will end with Closing Ceremony at the Museo Nazionale della Scienza e della Tecnologia Leonardo da Vinci. The Conference is organized biannually at different venues around the world, under the auspices of the International Society for Geometry and Graphics (ISGG). The spectrum ranges from fundamental research to geometric real-world applications, and education. Therefore, the conference aims at providing a forum for presentation and discussion of both academic and industrial research involving theoretical and applied geometry and graphics as well as other related fields. The 18th edition is organized at the Politecnico di Milano, by the Department of Architecture and Urban Studies DASTU. Politecnico di Milano is an academic community dealing with Architecture, Urban Studies, Engineering, and Design, then the Conference scope is deeply consistent with its cultural goals. Pure and applied, analogue and digital Geometry and Graphics are, indeed, of the greatest importance in our research/education activities and curricula, providing our basic operational language and supporting our specialized disciplinary semantics. The official language is English.
