Call for International Meshing Roundtable Papers

imr-logoThe premier conference dedicated to the science of mesh generation and general preprocessing for computational simulations is the International Meshing Roundtable, the 27th edition of which will be held 1-4 October 2018 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Their Call for Papers is now open. 

The 27th International Meshing Roundtable will be held October 1-5, 2018 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, U.S.A. We solicit technical papers that present original results on meshing, gridding and related technology. In addition, the 27th IMR also solicits short research notes and posters that describe exploratory research, preliminary results and techniques deemed to be relevant to the field of meshing.

Topics (Papers and Research Notes)

The following is a list of relevant topics:

  • Mesh Generation and Modification
    • Structured, unstructured, Cartesian, and hybrid meshing techniques
    • High-order finite elements, and mesh generation
    • Optimal meshing, centroidal Voronoi tessellation
    • Mesh adaptation, metrics, and anisotropy
    • Mesh refinement, coarsening, smoothing, untangling, optimization, simplification, and compression
    • Dynamic mesh modifications such as moving meshes, level set methods, and mesh morphing
  • Meshing for High-Performance and Distributed Computing
    • Parallel mesh data structure
    • Mesh partitioning and coloring
    • Parallel meshing, mesh streaming, and real-time meshing techniques
  • Meshing for cloud computing
    • CAD and Computational Geometry Issues for Meshing
    • Geometry representation and translation: B-Rep NURBS, implicit surfaces, and volume data
    • Surface reconstruction and domain generation
    • Geometry preparation: CAD repair/cleanup, simplification, defeaturing, partitioning, decomposition, and imprint/merge
    • Dimension reduction: medial axis transformation, Voronoi diagram, chordal axis transform, mid-surface, and other skeletal representations
    • Virtual geometry and topology
  • Implications of Applications for Meshing
    • Finite element, finite volume analysis and modeling
    • Geometric modeling
    • Computer graphics and scientific visualization
    • Other novel methodology and applications, such as isogeometric analysis
    • Solution-driven adaptivity
    • Application-specific novel meshing techniques

User Forum

The 27th IMR will also host a user forum featuring technical presentations and posters demonstrating novel application of meshing tools as well as hands-on tutorials of state-of-the-art commercial software tools for mesh generation.  Abstracts and posters are solicited from practitioners that highlight aspects of the model preparation process and its application to relevant science and engineering solutions. The IMR will also host a meshing contest, allowing members of the meshing community to showcase their tools as part of the User Forum.
