To encourage the distribution of useful, high quality software in geometry processing, since 2011 an award is given for freely available software related to or useful for geometry processing. Please send nominations and applications for the software award to firstname.lastname@example.org
The nomination should include a description of the software and its functionality as well as a justification why and to what extent the Geometry Processing community benefits from this software. Links to the code and additional material should also be included if possible. Every software project is eligible as long as:
- it can be counted as a Geometry Processing contribution;
- it is available for free to academic researchers in the field (i.e. for non-commercial use).
A jury will evaluate all nominations and select a winner based on the usual quality criteria for software. The most predominant criterion, however, will be the impact, i.e. to what degree the software has affected the scientific progress in the field.
