The 28th International Meshing Roundtable (IMR) solicits technical papers and research abstracts that present original results on meshing, gridding and related technology. We encourage theoretical and novel ideas and algorithms with practical potential as well as technical applications in science and engineering, geometric modeling, computer graphics and visualization in research and industrial settings.

The following is a list of relevant topics:

Topics (Papers and Research Abstracts)
  • Mesh Generation and Modification
    • Structured, unstructured, Cartesian, and hybrid meshing techniques
    • High-order finite elements, and mesh generation
    • Optimal meshing, centroidal Voronoi tessellation
    • 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
  • Meshing for High-Performance and Distributed Computing
    • Parallel mesh data structure
    • Mesh partitioning and coloring
    • Parallel meshing, mesh streaming, and real time meshing techniques
    • Meshing for cloud computing
  • 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
  • Implications of Applications for Meshing
    • Finite element, finite volume analysis and modeling
    • Geometric modeling
    • Computer graphics and scientific visualization
    • Other novel methodology and applications, such as isogeometric analysis
    • Solution-driven adaptivity
    • Application-specific novel meshing techniques
Paper and Research Abstract Submissions
Full Papers
Full papers must have original and significant contribution in order to be accepted. All papers will be rigorously peer-reviewed by reviewers selected by the program committee. Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings and will also be provided to conference attendees on a flash drive and available on the IMR website. The proceedings are printed in color. Each accepted paper will be given a 20 minute slot for presentation plus 5 minutes for questions.
Research Abstracts - New for 2019!
Research Abstracts are extended abstracts not exceeding a single A4 page (single spaced) describing new ideas, exploratory research, preliminary results, corrections or updates to previously published research in the field of meshing. These research abstracts will be reviewed by the IMR committee upon submission. Unlike full papers, these abstracts will not be part of the conference proceedings and camera-ready submissions are not necessary. The research abstracts will be presented at special sessions at the conference. These abstracts will also be published on the IMR website and will be included in the registration material. Each research abstract will be given a 10 minute slot for presentation followed by 5 minutes for Q&A.
Submission Details
Paper and Research Abstract submissions will be open in mid-April. For requirements and submission instructions, visit Paper Submission webpage.
Important Dates
Deadlines are all 11:59 pm Mountain Daylight Time (UTC-6 hours)
  • Call for papers: March 27, 2019
  • Paper Submission website opens: April 15, 2019
  • Full paper submission deadline: June 4, 2019
  • Final paper notification of acceptance: August 6, 2019
  • Research Abstracts Submission Deadline: August 6, 2019
  • Research Abstracts Notification: August 20, 2019

Special Notes:
  • For accepted papers and research abstracts, at least one author must register for the IMR. Participants may be an author of multiple papers and research abstracts. Each paid IMR registrant will be limited to one presentation (paper or research abstract). Not limited to papers and research abstracts, all authors and presenters are encouraged to also submit posters and/or meshing contest entries.
  • Authorization to Publish / Copyright Agreement: A completed “authorization to publish” or copyright agreement form will be required after acceptance of your paper. Details will be sent to authors of accepted papers.
