Workshops and Special Sessions

Session: Research Activities and Research Funding

The aim of the session is to put together people interested in common research activities leading to submission grants proposals to European Union and NSF (US) or other granting bodies. Would be reasonable to have an idea where to apply and what project profile would be suitable including a suggestion of the submitting (main leader) institution.

Workshop: Meshless Methods in Computer Science, Physical Sciences and Engineering

Organizer: Prof. Vaclav Skala, http://www.VaclavSkala.eu, Head of the Center of Computer Graphics and Visualization, http://graphics.zcu.cz/, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Faculty of Applied Sciences, University of West Bohemia, Plzen [Pilsen], Czech Republic
Meshless Research group at the University of West Bohemia - http://meshfree.zcu.cz/

E-mail: Submission to: skala@kiv.zcu.cz subject: "WSCG 2018-Meshless 2018"

Standard computational methods across many application fields require tessellation in 2D or 3D using triangular or tetrahedral meshes. Tessellation itself is computationally expensive especially in higher dimensions and result of computation is again discrete and physical phenomena are not smoothly interpolated. Meshless methods are scalable to higher dimensions and offer smooth final representation. Meshless methods lead to a solution of system of linear equations, in general. The applicability of meshless methods can be found in several areas. 

The workshop is intended to exploration of theoretical foundations and applicability of meshless methods,

Main topics (but not limited to):

  • Meshless methods in computer graphics, vizualization and computer vision
  • Meshless methods in engineering problems
  • Meshless methods - theory and practice
  • Meshless interpolation and approximation of large data sets
  • Radial Basis Functions (RBF) in computer graphics, visualization, image processing and computer vision
  • Meshless methods and projective space
