Call for Papers

The First International Conference on Advanced Computational Applications of Geometric Algebra (ICACGA) seeks submissions that successfully bridge sound mathematical descriptions with practical computational applications that reflect and address the current interests and needs of industry. ICACGA invites original and unpublished contributions of Geometric Algebra (as well as Clifford algebra, quaternions, and octonions) applied in areas including (but not limited to):

  • Image and Signal Processing
  • Edge Computing
  • Heterogeneous systems
  • Data encoding, storage, and transmission
  • Network and graph computing
  • Computer graphics
  • Data visualization
  • Geometric Deep Learning
  • Cryptography
  • Security and privacy
  • Data compression
  • Quantum computing
  • Navigation and GPS
  • GA implementations

All accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings, which are to be published by Springer in their Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series (final approval pending). At least one author of each accepted paper will be expected to present their work during the conference. After the conference, authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their work to the journal Advances in Applied Clifford Algebras (AACA), Springer, in the Topical Collection ICACGA 2-5 October, 2022. Detailed information about the conference papers and full AACA papers is provided under “Instructions for Authors”.

Awards

Best Paper Award: GA Applied to Cryptography

USD $2,000 cash, a plaque, and a certificate.

This award honors the best original research paper that demonstrates GA applied to any subject related to cryptography. The candidates will submit papers in the standard way to ICACGA. Those who want to join the crypto competition will have the opportunity to identify their papers accordingly. The crypto competition is led by Dr. Jonathan Katz (University of Maryland), who will consider the regular reviews from the Scientific Committee and will be able to apply additional scrutiny, as needed, to determine the winner.

Best Paper Award: Industry-ready GA-based novelty

USD $2,000 cash, a plaque, and a certificate.

This award honors the best original research paper that demonstrates GA applied to any subject related to This award honors the best original research paper that bridges an academic subject and a real-world application in industry. The candidates will submit papers in the standard way to ICACGA. All papers submitted to ICACGA are automatically participating in this competition. This is an opportunity to recognize a broader spectrum of ideas and research results. The members of the Advisory Committee determine the winner after observing the regular reviews from the Scientific Committee.

Best Paper Award: GA Applied to Computational Performance

USD $2,000 cash, a plaque, and a certificate.

This award honors the best original technical paper that demonstrates improvements in computational performance with GA. The candidates will submit papers in the standard way to ICACGA. Those who want to join the performance competition will have the opportunity to identify their papers accordingly. The performance competition is led by Dr. Dietmar Hildenbrand (Technische Universität Darmstadt), who will determine the winner with the support of the Advisory Committee.


Instructions for Authors

Conference Papers

All submissions must be received by 11:59 PM anywhere on Earth (UTC -12) on the day of the announced deadline. Candidate papers must be original, unpublished, and cannot be simultaneously in submission process with any other venue with proceedings.

Submissions must be anonymous. If a submission is not properly anonymized, it will be automatically rejected without review. To ensure that all papers are properly anonymized, please refer to the following:

  • No author names or affiliations should be included in the title page.
  • Figures and appendices should be thoroughly reviewed by authors to ensure that affiliations are not mistakenly included.
  • Refer to previous work in the third person. Blinding references is acceptable if a third-person reference is not feasible.

Papers should not exceed 12 pages, including bibliography and appendices. Authors must apply Springer conference paper templates, which can be found in the author’s instruction page: http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0

All other information relevant to both volume editors and contributing authors regarding our LNCS series print and electronic publication process can be found at: http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs

Registered conference participants will receive temporary free access to the online version of the conference proceedings on SpringerLink (https://link.springer.com) by means of an individual token.

Full AACA Papers

Post-conference extended and more advanced ICACGA 2022 papers can be submitted to a topical collection (TC) of the journal Advances in Applied Clifford Algebras (AACA), published by Birkhauser, and should have been orally presented at the conference. See the “Instruction for Authors” at AACA. Standard quality and review requirements of AACA will be observed.

To have their submissions qualified as extended papers, authors must provide new results and discussions not present in the conference paper, including proofs of theorems/propositions or additional algorithms and/or analysis of algorithms not given previously. The extended portion of the AACA submission must correspond to at least 30% of the conference paper with a recommended length of ~18-20+ pages.

Online paper submission deadline will be announced soon. At the time of submission, authors must indicate the topical collection “TC ICACGA 2022”.

Conflicts of Interests

Authors are asked during the submission process to identify all members of the Scientific Committee who have an automatic conflict of interest (COI) with the submission. A reviewer and an author have an automatic COI if:

  • one was the thesis advisor/supervisor of the other
  • they have shared an institutional affiliation within the last two years
  • they have published two or more joint authored works within the last three years
  • they are relatives

It is the responsibility of all authors to report any pertinent COI information. Submissions with incorrect or incomplete COI reporting may be rejected without consideration.
