Looming submission deadlines.

Apropos of my post on implementing geometric algorithms, it seems like a good time to mention the upcoming ALENEX deadline.
The aim of the ALENEX workshop is to provide a forum for presentation of original research in the implementation and experimental evaluation of algorithms and data structures.
If you use Google Calendar, click to add the deadline to your calendar.

Another deadline that's coming up even sooner is for the Fall Workshop on Computational Geometry, the annual math-conference-style event for geometers. This year it's in Smith College on Nov 10-11, and is being run by Ileana Streinu. One of the special events this year is a 3D Printing demo by Joe O'Rourke. The deadline is Sep 22, and it should already be in your calendar by now, but if not, click here .

p.s if you want to create buttons like above for your event, here's the link.


  1. Are there any similar ways to conveniently add events to a calendar that are not tied to a particular commercial vendor? The closest I can see is a greasemonkey script for firefox that finds hEvents in webpages and displays them as links that, when clicked, generate a calendar (.ics) file that can be imported by whatever calendar program is being used. However: this requires a converter program (x2v) at some guy's website for every use, is complicated to install, and still doesn't seem to be as easy to use as the google calendar link. It should be possible to have a setup whereby an event is an object that can be dragged from a webpage and dropped into a calendar. No?

  2. you're way ahead of me on this: I haven't even heard of x2v. Such a thing would indeed be useful. There's been a lot of ferment in the "event space", but little in the way of established microformats for events.
