Discrete and Computational Geometry, Shape Analysis, and Applications

May 19 - May 21, 2023 

FRG Workshop on Discrete and Computational Geometry, Shape Analysis, and Applications. 

Rutgers University, May 19-21 (Friday-Sunday), 2023

Rutgers Academic Building - East Wing (BLDG 3198), Room 2225, College Avenue Campus, New Brunswick


The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers in mathematics and computer science to discuss some of the recent developments in discrete and computational geometry,  computer science, and applications to real-world problems.  The workshop will provide ample opportunities for discussions and collaborations.  There will be organized discussions of open problems and potential applications.  

This workshop is part of the NSF FRG project: Geometric and Topological Methods for Analyzing Shapes. See the project here


We are grateful to the National Science Foundation for supporting this workshop through the NSF FRG program and the Rutgers Mathematics Department for financial support. If there is any question about the reimbursement, please contact frg2023rutgers@gmail.com.

Registration is free and open to everyone. If you are planning to attend, please register as soon as possible so that we can prepare appropriate amounts of food, etc. Register by filling in the registration form here. Registration is closed on April 21, 2023

Financial Support:

There are limited funds available for the financial support of participants. These are primarily intended for graduate students and early career researchers. Preference for financial support will be given to applications received by April 15, 2023, but we will consider later requests as funds allow. 

Graduate students applying for support should request a letter of recommendation from their advisor. Please consider sharing lodging with someone else, as we may not be able to guarantee accommodation funding beyond half a hotel room per student. Please send requests for travel support in an email to: frg2023rutgers@gmail.com with the subject line: FRG Workshop Support Request. If you want assistance in finding a roomate, please email the organizers above

We invite junior researchers to present a short talk in the workshop. The talks are expected to be 15-20 minutes in length. Depending on the number of contributed talks, the organizers will review the submissions and let you know if you have been selected. If you are interested, please send your title and abstract to frg2023rutgers@gmail.com with the subject line: Short Talk Title and Abstract.

Travel and Accommodations:

We will prefer to book flights and accommodations for speakers and international participants who get funded. For domestic participants, please make your own arrangements for travel and hotel. The most convenient local hotels are Hyatt Regency (732-873-1234) and The Heldrich (732-729-4670) in New Brunswick, about 10-15 mins talk to the workshop venue. 

The nearest airport is Newark Liberty Airport, about 40 minutes by car from Rutgers University. From the airport, the cheapest way to get to Rutgers is to take the Airtrain to the Newark Airport train station, an NJ Transit train to New Brunswick.

To receive reimbursement for airline travel, the National Science Foundation requires that you must fly a US carrier.
