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:
