AIMS & SCOPE
The aim of the new workshop Geometry and Materials Sciences (GEMS) is to trigger interdisciplinary research at the emerging interfaces of material sciences, applied mathematics, and geometric computing.
New shapes, new materials, new processes are at the horizon, yet, the scientific understanding and the communication structures are behind. GEMS provides a novel framework to trigger interdisciplinary discussions among 30 world experts at the forefront of modern applied geometry and materials sciences.
The workshop is open to the research community for participation. For additional information, please contact Naoko Tokumoto (firstname.lastname@example.org).
More than 30 experts from various areas of geometry and material sciences have been invited to provide an inspiring group of most creative people. Each invited speaker will give a 30 minute talk highlighting a hot development in his area and showcase the crosslinks and open problems it poses in other fields.
Among the speakers are:
- Ergun Akleman, Texas A&M University
- Ken Anjyo, OLM Digital R&D
- Chandrajit Bajaj, The University of Texas at Austin
- Gershon Elber, Israel Institute of Technology
- Luca Giomi, Leiden University

PUBLIC GEOMETRY INSTALLATIONS
During the workshop two large scale geometry installations will be assembled on the campus of OIST to inspire and initiate a discussion with the broader public.
Innovators Paul Hildebrandt (co-founder Zometool) and Rinus Roelofs (sculptor) will built with local student teams two geometric sculptures using their novel construction kits. A model from 4D space and a self-supporting 3D assembly will lead to many discussions about various aspects of the relation of geometry and materials.
