Geometric Constraints
A special issue of
International Journal of Computational Geometry and Applications

Geometric Constraints Solvers are today a key component of all geometric modelers. Geometric constraints occur for dimensioning and tolerancing mechanical parts in CAD-CAM, for modeling curves, surfaces and blends, for conception of mechanisms, for finding the configurations of robots in robotics or of molecules in chemistry. New applications of constraints modeling will likely arise.

In recent years, research on geometry constraint solving is quite active. Besides many reports in large scale conferences, geometry constraint solving is one of the main themes of several specialized workshops including the ISICAD workshop held in Russia in June 2004, the ADG workshop held in USA in September 2004, and the Workshop on Geometric Constraint Solving held in China in October 2003. We feel that it is time to publish a special issue devoted to this important topic.

Thus IJCGA is devoting a special issue to the subject of geometric constraints. Authors should note the benefits of publication in a special issue - a collection of high-quality related papers in one volume, with expedited handling of the review and revision of accepted papers. The journal has committed to giving priority in the publication queue for the special issue.

Manuscripts are solicited on topics to include:

Authors should send their submission as a file attachment in pdf or postscript format to both guests editors by June 30, 2005.
