DIMACS Workshop on Medical Applications in Computational Geometry

April 2-4, 2003
DIMACS Center, Rutgers University, Piscataway, NJ

Danny Chen, University of Notre Dame, dchen@cse.nd.edu

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, etc. The workshop will consist of both invited and solicited contributions.
