Second International Workshop

Organizer: Vladimir Rovenski

Pre-workshop Informal Sessions and Tours May 14-15; Lectures May 16-17.


Second International Workshop "Geometry and Symbolic Computations" at Haifa, Israel (May 15 – May 17)


This Workshop is dedicated to modeling (using symbolic calculations) in Differential Geometry and its Applications (in computer sciences, tomography, mechanics, etc).

The aims of the workshop: To create a forum for workers in pure, applied and computational geometry, including students, to promote discussion of modern state of art in Geometric modeling using symbolic programs (Maple, Matlab, etc); presentation of new results.

The first International Workshop in this series, named "Reconstruction of Geometrical Objects Using Symbolic Computations", was on September 2008, University of Haifa, see page


A. Modeling and symbolic computations in geometry.

B. Applications of geometry (in computer science, tomography, mechanics, etc).

C. Posters.
