DIMACS Workshop on Medical Applications in Computational Geometry
April 2-4, 2003
DIMACS Center, Rutgers University, Piscataway, NJ
Presented under the auspices of the
DIMACS Special Focus on Computational Geometry and Applications and DIMACS Special Focus on Computational Molecular Biology.

Computer technology plays an increasingly important role in modern
medicine and life sciences. Many medical problems are of a strong geometric
nature and may benefit from computational geometry techniques.
The DIMACS workshop on Computational Geometry and Medical
Applications aims to provide a forum for researchers working
in computational geometry, medicine, and other related areas to
get together and exchange ideas, and to promote cross-fertilization
and collaborations among these areas. The theme of the workshop is
on the exploration of the applicability of computational geometry
to medical problems and the new challenges posed by the current
medical research and practice to the geometric computing study.
Examples of topics include surgical simulation and planning,
geometric representation and modeling of medical objects and human-body
tissue structures, geometric problems in medical imaging,
computational anatomy, registration and matching of medical objects,
The workshop will consist of both invited and solicited contributions.
