Women in Shape Modelling, 5-12 june 2016


Nesim Math Village, Sirince, Turkey

Deadline for travel funding: 15 Jan 2016

Scientific Overview

This workshop is designed to strengthen the shape modeling community by bringing together women researchers at various stages in their careers (from graduate student to senior researcher) to foster research collaboration and mentorship. We welcome applications from women with active research programs from smaller teaching schools as well as from research-oriented institutions.

Participants will spend one week working together in small groups to solve one of three open questions in shape modeling. Likely topics include understanding shape complexity from multiple perspectives, generating discrete formulations of variational problems and optimizing solutions, and developing flexible, robust, and compact skeletal representations of three-dimensional shapes.

In contrast to the typical workshop structure where participants watch presentations of established results, WiSh participants will begin generating new results in collaboration with other participants. Preference for travel funding will be given to graduate students and early career researchers.
