One of theSoCG satellite event will be the ”Computational Geometry: Young Researchers Forum” (CG:YRF), which is aimed at current and recent students. The active involvement by students and recent graduates in research, discussions, and social events has been a longstanding tradition in the CG community. Participation in a top-level event such as SoCG can be educating, motivating, and useful for networking, both with other students and with more senior scientists.
The YRF presents young researchers (*defined as not having received a formal doctorate before 2017*) an opportunity to present their work (in progress as well as finished results) to the CG community in a friendly, open setting. Just like in the main event, presentations will be given in the form of talks. A pre-screening (but no formal review process) will ensure appropriate quality control.
