Computational Geometry:
Solving Hard Optimization Problems

Geometric Optimization Challenges

We host optimization challenges for computational geometry problems. The challenges are part of the CG Week (workshop at CG Week 2019, now official part at CG Week 2020 in Zurich, Switzerland, June 22-26, 2020).


Active Competitions

Ends at: Feb. 15, 2020, 11:59 a.m. UTC
CG:SHOP 2020
Organized by: Erik Demaine , Sándor Fekete , Phillip Keldenich , Dominik Krupke , Joseph S. B. Mitchell

The Second Geometric Optimization Challenge is part of CG Week in Zurich, Switzerland, June 22-26, 2020. The task is to solve the Minimum Convex Partition Problem, which asks for a set of edges connecting a given set of points which partitions the convex hull of the points into the minimum number of convex regions.
