Welcome to Curves and Surfaces

Welcome to 10th International Conference on Curves and Surfaces, organised by SMAI-SIGMA.

The conference will take place from Monday June 20th to Friday June 24th, 2022 at the Palais des Congrès in Arcachon, France.

Curves and Surfaces 2022 is an ''in person'' event (not online or hybrid).

Conference topics

Overall theme: “Representation and Approximation of Curves and Surfaces and Applications” with subtopics (in alphabetical order):

  • Approximation theory
  • Computer-aided geometric design
  • Computer graphics and visualisation
  • Computational geometry and topology
  • Geometry processing
  • Image and signal processing
  • Interpolation and smoothing
  • Mesh generation, finite elements and splines
  • Scattered data processing and learning theory
  • Sparse and high-dimensional approximation
  • Subdivision, wavelets and multi-resolution methods

as well as related applications in manufacturing, mechanics, solid modelling, terrain modelling, oceanography, geosciences, life sciences ...
