GCD 5 - SYMPOSIUM ON GEOMETRY AND COMPUTATIONAL DESIGN
The members of the Center for Geometry and Computational Design cordially invite interested faculty, students, company representatives and the interested public to our fifth Symposium on Geometry and Computational Design on Oct 25, 2018 at the Kuppelsaal of TU Wien.
We will have a series of lectures by leading researchers who present recent developments in geometry, computer graphics, computational design and architectural engineering. Please forward this announcement to people who might be interested in the event.
We kindly ask potential participants to register for the symposium by October 21, 2018 with our secretary Doris Hotz via email at
Attending the symposium will be free of charge.
We hope to see you there!
