About

Making SOCG is a forum for discussion of future organization of the Symposium on Computational Geometry, including its relationship with ACM.

I’m your host, Jeff Erickson, the chair of the Computational Geometry Steering Committee. Posts and comments are invited from from the computational geometry community and all other interested stakeholders. If you are interested in contributing a post, please send me email.

    Hello and thanks for the details.
    I wanted to leave a reply in the “Hello and welcome” post, but for some reason I couldn’t find a way to do it. My question is whether the vote has taken place. If yes, then what are the results. If not, then when exactly will it take place, who can participate in it, and how. More specifically, can anyone who has published at least one paper related to computational geometry (in either a journal or a conference form) participate? And is it going to be an anonymous vote?
    Thanks in advance.

    I posted a comment here two days ago but perhaps due to a technical problem it has not
    appeared. I tried to leave it here since I had technical problems to leave it in the “Hello and welcome” post. My question is whether the vote has taken place. If yes, then what are the results. If not, then when exactly will it take place, who can participate in it, and how. More specifically, can anyone who has published at least one paper related to computational geometry (in either a journal or a conference form) participate? And is it going to be an anonymous vote?

      The vote has NOT yet taken place.

      We will follow the same protocol that was used for the computational geometry steering committee. Voting will be handled anonymously through Ballot Bin. Invitations will be emailed to subscribers to the computational geometry mailing list (https://sympa.inria.fr/sympa/info/compgeom-announce) and to recent authors of computational geometry conference and journal papers and ArXiv cs.CG preprints.

      The vote will only open after the community has had a chance to discuss the issues here. My current target date to open the voting is December 1.

        Sounds fair and enables, at least in principle, broad participation. It seems that recent members of editorial boards and program committees (and local organizers?) of relevant journals, conferences, and workshops should be part of the game too, but probably the majority of them already satisfy the previous mentioned criteria. As for the “recent” parameter, what is a reasonable value of it: perhaps 5 years?
