Venue:

Manaus, Brazil

Short description of the event:

The aim of the Workshop is to bring together researchers in multidisciplinary fields, with emphasis on Distance Geometry (DG). Distance Geometry is an area of research already consolidated, with Mathematics and Computer Science as key areas at its foundation. The concept of distance is essential to the human experience and DG puts this concept as the main object in a given geometric structure. The fundamental problem of DG is to find a set of points in a given geometric space whose distances between some of these points are known.

The topics of interest of the workshop are theory, algorithms, and applications of Distance Geometry related to the following research areas, but are not limited to:

Astronomy

Coding Theory

Computer Networks

Data Visualization

Geometric Structures

Graph Theory

Molecular Structure

Pattern Recognition

Psychology

Robotics

Statics

Statistics
