CfP: CGTA Special Issue on Algorithmic Aspects of Computational and Applied Topology

***** Call for papers – CGTA Special Issue on Algorithmic Aspects of Computational and Applied Topology *****

Computational Geometry is a forum for research in theoretical and applied aspects of computational geometry. The journal publishes fundamental research in all areas of the subject, as well as disseminating information on the applications, techniques, and use of computational geometry. Computational Geometry publishes articles on the design and analysis of geometric algorithms. All aspects of computational geometry are covered, including the numerical, graph theoretical and combinatorial aspects. Also welcomed are computational geometry solutions to fundamental problems arising in computer graphics, pattern recognition, robotics, image processing, CAD-CAM, VLSI design and geographical information systems.

This special issue is dedicated to original contributions in the general area of computational and applied topology. This includes, but is not limited to, progress on theory, algorithms and complexity analysis, implementation, and experimental study of problems in areas such as persistent homology, topological data analysis, low dimensional topology, homotopy theory, and topological combinatorics.

This special issue will be edited by Erin Wolf Chambers, Brittany Terese Fasy, and Clément Maria.

Manuscript submission information: 

All submissions will be thoroughly evaluated in a single-blind peer-review process by at least two independent reviewers. The guest editors reserve the right to reject without review any submissions deemed to be outside the scope of the special issue. Authors are welcome to contact the special issue editors with questions about scope before preparing a submission.

Manuscripts submitted for this special issue should represent original, previously unpublished work or broader surveys which are original. At the time of submission, and for the entire review period, the paper (or essentially the same paper) should neither be under review by any conference with published proceedings nor by a scientific journal.

Manuscripts should be submitted online via Elsevier’s Editorial Manager; see We refer to

for a general guide for authors.

Multiple, redundant or concurrent publication: An author should not in general publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication. Elsevier does not view the following uses of a work as prior publication: publication in the form of an abstract; publication as an academic thesis; publication as an electronic preprint.
