Surface Approximation and Visualisation
15-18 February 1999


University of Canterbury

Christchurch, New Zealand

The topic Surface Approximation and Visualisation will be interpreted broadly and we expect participants with interests covering the spectrum from Approximation Theory, through Numerical Analysis and Computer Aided Geometric Design, to those whose main interest is applications (e.g., data mining and geophysics). We plan to allocate lots of time without lectures for informal interactions, including a conference trip to Hanmer Springs thermal area. Currently confirmed speakers include:

B. Barsky (Berkeley), M. D. Buhmann (Dortmund), N. Dyn (Tel Aviv),
R. Goldman (Rice), M. Hegland (Canberra), S. L. Lee (Singapore), T. Lyche (Oslo),
D. Leviatan (Tel Aviv), C. A. Micchelli (IBM), G. M. Nielson (Arizona), A. Pinkus (Technion),
R. Schaback (Göttingen), L. L. Schumaker (Vanderbilt), Zuowei Shen (Singapore)
