Call for Papers

Papers are being sought that present original results on meshing and related topics. We encourage theoretical and novel ideas and algorithms with practical potential as well as technical applications in engineering, geometric modeling, and computer graphics in research and industrial settings. Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  • CAD and Computational Geometry Issues for Meshing

    • Geometry representation and translation: B-Rep NURBS, implicit surfaces, and volume data
    • Surface reconstruction and domain generation
    • Geometry preparation: CAD repair/cleanup, simplification, defeaturing, partitioning, decomposition, and imprint/merge
    • Dimension reduction: medial axis transformation, Voronoi diagram, chordal axis transform, mid-surface, and other skeletal representations
    • Virtual geometry and topology

  • Surface and Volume and Topology

    • Structured, unstructured, Cartesian, and hybrid meshing techniques
    • Mesh adaptation, metrics, and anisotropy
    • Mesh refinement, coarsening, smoothing, untangling, optimization, simplification, and compression
    • Dynamic mesh modifications such as moving meshes, level set methods, and mesh morphing
    • Parallel meshing, mesh streaming, mesh partitioning, and real time meshing techniques
    • High-order element construction

  • Analysis and/or Demonstrations

    • Mesh optimization and performance properties of algorithms
    • Mesh geometric quality guarantees
    • Relevance or irrelevance of mesh quality geometric measures

  • Software Design Issues

    • CAD interfaces and mesh data formats
    • Mesh database, design, and architecture

  • Implications of Application for Meshing

    • Finite element, finite volume analysis and modeling
    • Geometric modeling
    • Computer graphics
    • Scientific visualization
    • Other novel applications


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 flashdrive. The proceedings will be published in black-and-white by Springer Publishing Group and distributed at the Roundtable.

Full Paper Due: July 06, 2011
(no extensions will be granted because of printer's requirements)

Research Notes

In addition to full papers, the 20th 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 August 12, 2011

  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.

Research Notes Due: August 12, 2011
(please make sure to submit by deadline to be included in program)
