Lorraine-Saarland workshop on Geometry and CAD

Monday, April 14 2003


The purpose of the workshop series is to foster collaborative research between Lorraine and Saarland by bringing together researchers and students for one or two days of lectures, talks and scientific discussions. These mini-workshops are directed primarily towards young researchers with the objective of familiarizing them with the research projects being conducted in neighboring institutions. Topics of interest are naturally those of the computer science laboratories of Lorraine and Saarland.

The workshop series consists of 7 workshops each consisting of one or two days of study spread over 2003. Each workshop will be organised by a scientific coordinator in collaboration with a member of the neighbouring institution. The date, the topic, the contents and the format for each day are to be determined by the scientific coordinators for that day.
