Symposium on Solid and Physical Modeling 2014 (SPM 2014) will be held on Oct 26 - 28, 2014, in the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, co-located with the Shape Modeling International 2014 (SMI 2014).

General Information
The focus of this symposium is on the mathematical and computational issues that arise in generating, analyzing, and processing geometric information in applications such as: mechanical design, process planning, manufacturing, medicine, games, animation, geology, and virtual reality.
The symposium is organized with the support of the Solid Modeling Association (SMA). During the symposium, the SMA will award the 2014 Pierre Bézier Prize for contributions to solid, shape and physical modeling.
Proceedings papers should present previously unpublished, original results that are not simultaneously submitted elsewhere. All papers will be rigorously peer-reviewed by members of the international program committee.
The SPM 2014 proceedings, including full papers and short papers, will be published as a journal special issue in Computer-Aided Design (Elsevier). Papers will be available for download during the conference.
The journal status of the proceedings requires a two-stage review process with conditional acceptance after the first round and final acceptance based on the revised submissions. Full and short papers undergo the same review process.

We invite submissions related, but not limited to the following topics:

•  Applied algebraic and differential geometry
