Call for Papers: Participants in the AGACSE conference who wish to give a talk, show a poster, or organize some complementary activity (for instance a software demo) should submit an abstract in pdf format via EasyChair not later than May 1st, 2015. For related information, see Proceedings http://www-ma2.upc.edu/agacse2015/proceedings.html

The AGACSE 2015 Conference has three main goals:
◾ To promote the development of the Clifford-Grassmann geometric algebra.
◾ To make progress on the inclusion of geometric algebra ideas into the mathematics, science and engineering curricula.
◾ To spread geometric algebra technologies within industry and business by showing a range of applications (robotics, image processing, computer vision, flight navigation, …).

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

◾ Applications of Geometric Algebra (GA) to Physics.
◾ Applications of GA to Image Processing.
◾ Applications of GA to Computer Vision.
◾ Applications of GA to artificial neural networks.
◾ Clifford Analysis and Quaternionic and Clifford Fourier Transform.
◾ GA for Position Determination and Aircraft Navigation.
◾ GA applied to Electrical Engineering
◾ GA Applied to Robotics.
◾ Methods of GA in Differential Geometry.
◾ Methods of GA for classical geometries.
◾ Implementation of GA in Education.
◾ Effective Algorithms and Computations.

Special sessions: Special sessions around some specific topic may be planned. Their number and structure will be determined according to the contributions received.
