The SIAM Special Interest Activity Group on Geometric Design (GD) and the Symposium on Solid and Physical Modeling (SPM) have a shared heritage dating back to the early 1980s. This joint conference (started in 2009) represents a historic union of these communities, their rich academic and industrial histories, as well as the common intellectual themes that continue to move them forward.
The 2021 SIAM Conference on Geometric and Physical Modeling seeks high quality, original research contributions that strive to advance all aspects of geometric and physical modeling, and their application in design, analysis, and manufacturing, as well as in biomedical, geophysical, digital entertainment, and other areas (see the list of conference themes).
Both GD and SPM will include a track for submission of technical papers. All papers will be rigorously peer-reviewed by members of the respective international program committees and will be published as a journal special issue: in Computer Aided Geometric Design (Elsevier) in the case of GD, and in Computer-Aided Design (Elsevier) in the case of SPM.
