This workshop is designed to strengthen the shape modeling community by bringing together women researchers at various
stages in their careers (from graduate student to senior researcher) to foster research collaboraton and mentorship. We welcome
applicatons from women with actve research programs from smaller teaching schools as well as from research-oriented
Partcipants will spend one week working together in small groups to solve open questons in shape modeling. Potental topics may include shape optmizaton, understanding shape complexity from multple perspectves, generatng discrete formulatons of variatonal problems and optmizing solutonsfor geometric analysis, and developing fexible, robust, and compact 2D and 3D shape representatons.
In contrast to the typical workshop structure where partcipants watch presentatons of established results, WiSh partcipants will begin generatng new results in collaboraton with other partcipants. Results from the workshop and related work may be submited for consideraton for publicaton in the Springer-AWM Proceedings series.
