Geometry Workshop in Seggau 2015

International Workshop in Seggau: July 10-12, 2015

This workshop takes place at Schloss Seggau (Seggau castle), located on a hill besides Leibnitz, in the south of Austria, just after the SGP conference in Graz.

Aims and Scope

This meeting is similar to previous workshops Strobl 2007, Admont 2009, Obergurgl 2011, and Strobl 2013. Topics of this meeting include, but are not limited to: polyhedral surfaces and discrete differential geometry in general, computational geometry; geometric methods in approximation theory and image processing; geometry processing; manufacturing; applications.

Alexander Bobenko (TU Berlin), Helmut Pottmann (TU Wien), Johannes Wallner (TU Graz).
Invited Speakers
Bernd Bickel (IST Austria)
Max Wardetzky (Univ. Göttingen)

The workshop begins with dinner on Thursday, July 9, 2015, and ends with breakfast on Monday, July 13, 2015. The Scientific Program is Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Since the 2015 Symposium Geometry Processing takes place in Graz Monday-Wednesday in the same week, we plan to offer an excursion on Thursday, the day between the two conferences.

Organization details

Accommodation in Seggau is booked by the organizers, guests stay at the conference venue.

Costs. The workshop is supported by TU Wien, FWF (Austrian Science Fund), EU, and DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft). Accommodation including breakfast costs EUR 80,- per day (EUR 62,- if you share a room). Probably there will be no additional costs.


Graz has an international airport connected mostly to nearby locations like Frankfurt, Munich, Vienna, Zurich, Dusseldorf, Berlin. You will probably be able to fly to Graz with 1 stop. The town of Leibnitz is well connected by train with both Graz and Graz airport. To reach Schloss Seggau from Leibnitz (3km) you can take a taxi (Tel.: +43 3452 2217 or +43 3452 2218).

Touristic Information
[Seggau Image]

Seggau castle is a conference venue built into a castle sitting on top of a hill on the southeastern fringe of the alps. This is a wine-growing area, proof of which is found in the extensive 300-year old wine cellars of the castle. The history of the region is even older: one can see the remains of the Roman city of Flavia Solva below the hill, and there are the remains of a celtic Isis Noreia temple on the neighbouring hill.
