Computer-based methods for the capture, construction, representation, fitting, and manipulation of complicated surfaces have led to a wide interest in, and need for, surface mathematics. Many applications require the use of surface descriptions, especially in such fields as computer aided design and manufacturing, computer graphics and computer vision. The description of surfaces is also of interest in geographic information systems, multimedia, and many other areas of science and medicine. This diversity and the wide range of applicability of the subject have already enabled the IMA to hold twelve very successful international conferences in the Mathematics of Surfaces series. The 13th such conference has now been scheduled. Several international authorities will be presenting invited papers, and contributed papers are now called for. These will be refereed by an international programme committee.
We are delighted to have as Keynote Speaker the renowned Field's Medallist:
