The Toronto Geometry Colloquium is a live weekly hour-long webseries
showcasing geometry processing research. Topics range from computer
science, mathematics, and engineering including 3D deep learning,
computational fabrication, and computer graphics. The unique format of
the Toronto Geometry Colloquium pairs a 10-min opener speaking about
a recent work with a 50-min headliner giving a keynote-style address.
Part of Toronto Geometry Colloquium's mission is to promote young researchers and showcase great
geometry processing research by members of traditionally
underrepresented communities. Talks are broadcast live and – unless
otherwise noted – recordings
are available thereafter.
