algorithms seminars

discrete mathematics and optimization seminars

workshops at Bellairs Research Institute, Barbados: Since 1988, I have been organizing small workshops at Bellairs. These are typically organized on a principle of intense, group collaboration on specific problems in geometry, motion planning, and graph drawing.

collaboration with INRIA: The computational geometry lab at McGill enjoys a collaboration with INRIA-Lorraine (LORIA). In particular, Projet ISA-McGill has sponsored some recent workshops that I have co-organized at Bellairs with Sylvain Lazard and Hazel Everett of LORIA. These workshops have studied geometry problems in computer graphics.
