                     VISUALIZATION  AND  MATHEMATICS  2002
                           Berlin--Dahlem (Germany)
                             May,  22-25,  2002

                      Under Sponsorship of the Deutsche
                         Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG)

This workshop provides an active forum for mathematicians and computer
graphics researchers on the fundamental problems of visualization
techniques, on applications in mathematics and on mathematical concepts
in visualization. It is the third symposium in a series of workshops
bringing together mathematicians and experts from computer graphics.

For more information see:


The themes of the workshop include:

o   visualization in differential geometry
    and partial differential equations
o   algorithmic representation of mathematical structures
o   computational aspects of topology
o   discrete geometry of meshes
o   compression of large and time-dependent geometric models
o   virtual laboratories for mathematics and applications
o   online visualization and computational web services.

Workshop Format

The workshop will include keynote lectures, invited talks and
contributed presentations. The time for keynote lectures, invited
talks and contributed talks will be 50, 40, and 30 minutes
respectively including discussions. We will give possibilities for
software demonstrations.

Interested contributors are asked to submit a full paper by March 10,
2002 for review. Based on the decision of the program committee
papers are accepted for presentation at the workshop.

Articcision of the program committee
papers are accepted for presentation at the workshop.

Articles by keynote lecturers, invited speakers and contributors
will be published by Springer Verlag in the book series
"Mathematics and Visualization". For preparation of papers we ask
to use the LaTeX templates for multi-authored books available from:

For review papers should be submitted online using the paper
submission form at the workshop website.

Abstracts of all talks in electronic form will be available at the
workshop, and the participants will receive an abstract volume.

Date and Location

The workshop will take place at the appealing Harnack-Haus in Berlin
Dahlem. The Harnack-Haus belongs to the German Max-Planck-Gesellschaft.
With our workshop we stay in the house's long tradition as an
international meeting place for scientists.

        Location:      Harnack-Haus in Berlin-Dahlem

        Date:          May 22 -- 25, 2002


The workshop is organized by the Sonderforschungsbereich "Differential
Geometry and Quantum Physics" (Sfb 288) at the Technische Universitat
in Berlin and the Department of "Scientific Visualization" at the
Konrad-Zuse-Zentrum fE Informationstechnik Berlin (ZIB).
