The seventh annual Bellairs Workshop on Computer Animation will focus on simulaiton and robotics, and will operate as a subgroup within workshop on computational geometry. Bellairs workshops help foster collaborations, new, old, and across disciplines. This year's format provides an opporunity to work on problems related simulation and robotics but in particular, problems that involve geometry and computation.

The workshop will take place at McGill University's Bellairs Research Institute and will be held Friday 6 February to Friday 13 February. Participants should plan to arrive at the Bridgetown airport in the afternoon on Friday. Shared taxi service (approximately 35 USD one way) will be organized via a Google spreadsheet. Note that when you are in Barbados, prices are always quoted in Barbados dollars, but you can always pay with US dollars as there is a fixed 2 Barbados to 1 USD exchange rate. The collocated computational geometry workshop has an excellent page listing other practical information.

The Bellairs facilities are relatively primitive (and inexpensive), so there are few distractions such as those typically found in hotels. Accommodation is very basic (in most cases double occupancy), and with meals costs between 70 and 85 USD per day. Reservations must be made through the workshop organizers. Due to space limitations, participation at the workshop is by invitation only. For more information about this workshop, please contact Paul Kry.
