Call for Papers

Papers are being sought that present original results on meshing and related topics. We encourage theoretical and novel ideas with practical potential as well as technical applications from industrial researchers. In addition to our core topics in meshing related algorithms, we are also interested in obtaining technical papers that relate analysis and application solutions to the mesh generation process. Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  • Mesh adaptivity, metrics, and anisotropy
  • Software design issues such as CAD interfaces and mesh data formats
  • Mesh refinement, coarsening, smoothing, quality, optimization and simplification
  • Preparing dirty, or incomplete, geometry for meshing; surface reconstruction
  • Mesh parallelism and real time meshing techniques
  • Dynamic mesh modifications such as moving meshes, level set methods
  • Computational geometry issues for meshing
  • Implications of applications for meshing and vice versa: common applications are:

    - Finite Element and Finite Volume analysis and modeling

    - Graphics

    - Geometric Modeling

    - Other novel applications are also welcome

  • Analysis and/or demonstrations of

    - Mesh optimization and performance properties of algorithims

    - Mesh geometric quality guarantees

    - Relevance or irrelevance of mesh quality geometric measures

  • Mesh related piecewise polynomial error behavior

Papers should contain significant technical content to be accepted. No presentation will be permitted at the conference without the submission and acceptance of a technical paper. Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings and will also be available on CD. The proceedings will be published in black-and-white by Springer Publishing Group and distributed at the Roundtable.

Full Paper due: June 5, 2009
(no extensions will be granted because of printer's requirements)


Research Notes

In addition to full papers, the 18th International Meshing Roundtable also solicits Research Notes which are short articles describing exploratory research, preliminary results and techniques deemed to be relevant to the field of meshing.

The guidelines for submitting a research note are as follows:

  1. The list of topics and formatting guidelines for research notes is the same as for the full paper.
  2. Research notes must be limited to 2000 words or 5 pages, whichever is shorter including figures, tables, references and appendices. Articles not meeting the formatting guidelines or page/word limit will be rejected.
  3. The submission date for research notes will be June 31, 2009
  4. Research notes will be reviewed by the committee and will be accepted or rejected without possibility of resubmission that year.
  5. Research notes will NOT be published in the printed proceedings of the International Meshing Roundtable. They will be included in the electronic version of the proceedings distributed on CD.
  6. A special session will be dedicated to presentations of research notes. Presenters will have 10 mins for presentation + 5 minutes for questions.
  7. Authors may NOT submit a full paper and a research note on the same topic in the same year.
  8. Research notes from a previous year are eligible to be submitted as a full paper the following year.
