DGCI: Conference on Discrete Geometry for Computer Imagery

DGCI is a series of conferences on Discrete Geometry for Computer Imagery. After several conferences organized in France, DGCI became an International Conference by its participants, its scientific committee and then by its location.

Steering Committee: Eric Andres, Gunilla Borgefors, Srecko Brlek, David Coeurjolly (chair), Isabelle Debled-Rennesson, Andrea Frosini, Maria-Jose Jimenez, Jacques-Olivier Lachaud, Nicolas Normand, Isabelle Sivignon.

Advisory board: Jean-Marc Chassery, Annick Montanvert, Gabriella Sanniti di Baja.

Since the 6th DGCI (November 1996), proceedings are published by Springer Verlag, in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

If you wish to organize the next DGCI Edition, please have a look to the Guidelines for DGCI organization and on how to prepare a DGCI proposal written by the DGCI Steering Committee.

Moreover, since the creation of the TC18, there is a presentation of the TC18 in plenary session during each DGCI conference. Here are the slides presented during some of these TC18 meetings: 2017 2016 2014 2013
