GEOMETRIAS’19 | APROGED’S 5TH INTERNACIONAL CONFERENCE
5th - 7th September, 2019 | Department of Mathematics of the Faculty of Sciences of Porto’s University, Portugal
   
CALL FOR EXTENDED ABSTRACTS (PAPER'S PROPOSALS)
The International Conferences Geometrias are organized by the Portuguese Association of Geometry and Drawing Teachers (Aproged) that aim to bring together academics, artists, researchers, scientists and students to share their investigations and practical experiments related to the leitmotiv of each edition, that is closely connected to Geometry through a broad panorama of topics.
The first conference Geometrias’13 took place in 2013, in the Faculty of Architecture of Porto’s University; and Geometrias’14 at ISCTE, in the University Institute of Lisbon, with “New challenges on practice, researching and teaching Geometries and Drawing” as engaging theme. The 2015’s edition, held in Lisbon’s’ Lusíada University, was a joint Conference between Geometrias and the Brazilian Graphica, gathered under the theme “Trends on Graphic Thinking”.  Geometrias’17 took place in the Department of Architecture of Coimbra’s University with “Thinking, Drawing, Modelling” as leitmotiv.
In 2019, Geometrias will be held in the Department of Mathematics of the Faculty of Sciences of Porto’s University with the intent of fostering interdisciplinary discussions and connections between theoretical researches and practical studies on polyhedra and geometric structures and its applications in architecture, arts, computer science, crystallography, design, education, engineering, mathematics, materials science and other related fields of study, that we believe might enrich each other and renew common interests on these subjects through networks of common inspirations. In addition to the five plenary lectures of notable Keynote Speakers and the papers to be selected for presentation by the Scientific Committee, Geometrias’19 will welcome a Session dedicated to the presentation and discussion of Posters and different Workshops with hands-on activities. 
We invite academics, artists, researchers, scientists and students to participate in the Call for Abstracts occurring between 15 October 2018 and 15 March 2019, submitting, through EasyChair, an extended abstract on investigations or practices addressing one or more of the following topics:
  • Polyhedral theory (e.g. topology, combinatorics, space-filling, spatial tessellations)
  • Applications of polyhedra and geometric structures to arts, architecture, design, engineering and others
  • Computational and constructive methods (e.g. parametric design, digital fabrication, 3D Printing, origami)
  • Illustrating polyhedra (e.g. perspective, modelling, interactive visualization, virtual and augmented reality)
  • Polyhedra and history
  • Architectural and engineering applications of geometric structures 
  • Polyhedra in the educational context
  • Material Structures
INFORMATION FOR AUTHORS OF PAPER'S PROPOSALS
The extended abstracts submitted to Geometrias’19 should refer to papers that are original and unpublished elsewhere.
The extended abstracts will be evaluated by the Scientific Committee, that will select a number of abstracts, based on the originality of the topic proposed, rigour of research and overall clarity of presentation.
Extended abstracts will be accepted either for presentation in the form of a 20-minute talk, or for presentation in the form of a poster (see below).
All accepted abstracts (papers and posters) will be collected in a book that will be distributed during the conference.
Following their presentation at the conference, a limited number of the accepted abstracts will be invited to develop their work into full research papers for publication in a contributed volume. This selection will be made by the Scientific Committee on the basis of the extended abstract and its presentation at the conference.
Authors of accepted abstracts must guarantee their participation at the conference. In abstracts with more than one author, it is required that at least one of the co-authors accomplishes his/her registration.
For each extended abstract selected for presentation (talk or poster), one author must pay a registration fee.

INFORMATION FOR AUTHORS OF POSTER'S PROPOSALS
The extended abstracts for poster presentations submitted to Geometrias’19 should refer to posters that are original and unpresented elsewhere.
The extended abstracts for poster presentations will be evaluated by the Scientific Committee, that will select a number of posters, based on the originality of the topic proposed, rigour of research and overall clarity of presentation.
Extended abstracts for poster presentations, if accepted, will be displayed throughout the whole conference. During the Poster Session, the authors will have the opportunity to present, explain and discuss their posters with the interested participants.
All accepted abstracts (papers and posters) will be collected in a book that will be distributed during the conference.
Authors of accepted abstracts for poster presentations must guarantee their participation at the conference. In posters with more than one author, it is required that at least one of the co-authors accomplishes his/her registration.
