Minisymposium on Publicly Available
Geometric/Topological Software

This year an expanded set of events will be co-located with the 28th Annual Symposium on Computational Geometry (SoCG), hosted at UNC Chapel Hill, June 17-20, 2012. The Minisymposium on Publicly Available Geometric/Topological Software is one of them, scheduled for the afternoons of June 17th and June 19th.

The aim of the minisymposium is to provide a platform for the presentation of publicly available and/or open source geometric and topological software. It will provide a means for the dissemination and familiarization of existing or forthcoming publicly available software.

The minisymposium will consist of a series of tutorial talks about open source and/or publicly available geometric/topological software, which the attendees will be able to follow on their own laptops, followed by an open demo/software presentation session, during which the antendees will be able to interact on a personal basis with the presenters.
