Computational Geometry: Media Exposition — First Announcement

Please see the call below. Notice that this media track has expanded its definition to have a wider scope this year. We welcome your submissions!

Computational Geometry: Media Exposition — First Announcement

Media, Visualizations, and Geometric Art are sought for the 29th International Computational Geometry Media Exposition (CG:ME), which will take place as part of Computational Geometry Week 2020, encompassing the 35th International Symposium on Computational Geometry. Submissions showcase creative approaches to illustrate research and/or support education in computational geometry. 


All deadlines are 23:59 anywhere on earth.

  • February 21, 2020 Abstract and media portfolio submissions due
  • March 8, 2020 Notification of acceptance/rejection
  • March 30, 2020 Final version of abstract and portfolio
  • June 23-26, 2020 Computational Geometry Week


  • The submission should be related to computational geometry, broadly interpreted, but is otherwise unrestricted: for example, it can illustrate a (new or existing) concept, technique or algorithm from computational geometry, it can explain an application of computational geometry, it can be meant for educational purposes or for entertainment purposes, and so on. 
  • The form of media is broad, including algorithm animations, interactive software and games, scientific artwork, sculptures, paintings, and virtual reality demonstrations. While videos are welcome, they are no longer required as in previous years.


A submission consists of two parts: a portfolio and a paper.

  • Submit a portfolio of the work, such as images, video, link to interactive apps, etc.  The submission should still be “displayable” during CGweek, and the authors should specify in their submission how the piece will be displayed. For example, if it is about a geometry-inspired sculpture, then one can bring the sculpture itself, or submit a video about this sculpture, its story and its connection to computational geometry. Note that if your work is a video, then the portfolio and the work are in fact identical.
  • Submit a paper which details the portfolio and where applicable, the techniques used in the implementation. The paper should explain the connection of the submission to computational geometry, broadly interpreted.  
  • Acceptance is based on both the submitted portfolio and the accompanying paper.

Technical Details

  • Portfolio submissions are limited to 100 MB. Authors are free to post higher quality versions on their own web sites, and we will include links in the electronic proceedings to their version, in addition to the official version (<100 MB) archived on
  • Videos should be 720p or better, using H.264, where the embedded audio stream should be AAC of at least 128kBit/s.
  • The paper must be formatted according to the guidelines for the conference proceedings using the LIPIcs format, and not exceed 100 lines, excluding front matter and references.  The number of images in the paper should also be kept reasonable. Typesetting instructions and the .cls style file are available on the CG website:


  • The Work will be on display at a gallery during Computational Geometry Week.  
  • The authors will have a session devoted to giving a short talk on their work at the Symposium on Computational Geometry.
