Summer Circle
at James Madison University, August 13-17, 2018
Register (Coming Soon)


The annual Summer Circle Packing Symposium brings together researchers and students working on problems related to Koebe-Andreā€™ev-Thurston-style circle packings, conformal maps, conformal tilings, and inversive geometry. The meeting is informal and is focused on fostering collaboration, making progress on current open problems, and identifying interesting new ones.

Participants have the opportunity to give flash talks on the first day of the workshop and the remainder of the workshop is comprised of relatively unstructured research collaboration. This year we are also piloting a tutorial series on special topics of interest to participants. See below for more information.

Topics of Interest

Topics of interest for the workshop include, but are not limited to:

  • Inversive distance circle packings and circle polyhedra.
  • Conformal tilings.
  • Algorithms for computing circle packings.
  • Conformal geometry.
  • Inversive geometry.
  • Applications of circle packings.

Date: August 13-17, 2018.

Flash Talks

The first session of the symposium is comprised of flash talks. The goal of these talks is to foster collaboration by giving brief (10-20 minutes) overviews of current research or supplying interesting open problems.

Special Topics Tutorials

This year we are piloting a tutorial session. Six weeks before the symposium we will solicit participants for a list of topics of interest (with suggested speakers from the participant list). We will distribute this list and request interested participants sign up to give tutorials. These can be longer form, anywhere from 20 to 45 minutes.
