Activities and Schedule

SGI will be held July 19 to August 28, 2021.  Student participants are asked to participate full-time during this period.

Participants will engage in a wide range of activities to immerse them in geometry processing research.  Work takes place in a group setting, with student participants working independently and in teams collaborating with program staff (graduate students, faculty, and research scientists).  The first week of SGI will feature a number of tutorials and activities to introduce students to geometry processing research.  Throughout the six weeks, SGI will provide opportunities to hear presentations from top researchers and industry members in the field.  Admitted students will be offered honoraria to cover the expense and opportunity cost of taking six weeks to participate.

A detailed schedule will be posted closer to the start date of SGI.  Some landmarks include:

  • Applications due:  February 15, 2021
  • Acceptance notification:  March 2021
  • First day of SGI:  July 19, 2021
  • Tutorials:  July 19-23, 2021
  • Research projects:  July 26, 2021-August 28, 2021

Some project teams may opt to continue their work past the end of SGI in an unofficial capacity, e.g., to prepare a research paper or share an open source software project.
