The general aim of CTIC workshops is to gather researchers dealing with the study of topological invariants from the computational point of view, and/or who want to use topological information in discrete geometry applications.
The workshop provides an opportunity for participants from different fields related to computational geometry, discrete geometry, geometric modeling, algebraic topology and image processing to exchange ideas.
The range of topics that are within the scope of CTIC includes (but is not limited to):
▪ Topological invariants and their computation, homology, cohomology, linking number, fundamental groups;
▪ Algorithm optimization in discrete geometry, transfer of mathematical tools, parallel computation in multi-dimensional volume context, hierarchical approaches;
▪ Experimental evaluation of algorithms and heuristics;
▪ Combinatorial or multi-resolution models;
▪ Discrete or computational topology;
▪ Geometric modeling guided by topological constraints;
▪ Computational topological dynamics;
▪ Use of topological information in discrete geometry applications.
The proceedings of the conference are published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series by Springer.
Special issues for extended versions of CTIC 2016 papers have been arranged in the following two journals:
Journal of Computer and System Sciences (Elsevier)
Mathematics for Applications
Submission deadline: August 31, 2016.
