Surface Approximation and Visualisation II
19-22 February 2002


New Zealand

This conference follows the successful one held at the University of Canterbury in February 1999. Again 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.

The venue is small coastal town of Westport on the mighty Buller river and at the foot of the Southern Alps. There will be plenty of time without lectures for informal interaction, including a day of lectures at the Punakaiki Rocks in the Paparoa National Park (looking out onto the Pacific Ocean) and a day trip to Karamea (near Kahurangi National Park).
Speakers expected to attend the conference include:

Len Bos (Calgary), Ken Brodlie (Leeds), Rida Farouki (Davis),
Seng Luan Lee (Singapore), Alain Le Mehaute (Nantes),
Detlef Mache (Dortmund), Mike Neamtu (Vanderbilt), Amos Ron (Madison),
Zouwei Shen (Singapore), Ian Sloan (Sydney),
