INRIA (Geometrica and Galaad) is coordinating the European project:
- Acronym: ecg, number IST-2000-26473
- Title: Effective Computational Geometry for Curves and Surfaces.
- Specific Programme: IST
- RTD (FET Open)
- Start date: may 1st 2001 - Duration: 3 years
- Participation of Inria as coordinating site
- Other participants:
ETH Zürich (Switzerland),
Freie Universität Berlin (Germany),
Rijksuniversiteit Groningen (Netherlands),
MPI Saarbrücken (Germany),
Tel Aviv University (Israel)
- Abstract: Efficient handling of curved objects in Computational Geometry. Geometric algorithms for curves and surfaces, algebraic issues, robustness issues, approximation.
ecg ended on April 30, 2004. Jean-Daniel Boissonnat was the project manager, and Monique Teillaud was the technical project manager.
She was in charge of the communication within the Board and the members, and with the Project Officer in Brussels. She was also maintaining the public web site of the project, together with internal web sites with restricted access, and the mailing lists for internal communication (the members mailing list contains 66 addresses).
Steve Oudot (Geometrica team) was maintaining the php scripts for submission of technical reports, originally written by Menelaos Karavelas (Prisme team). Olivier Ruatta settled a MySQL server that is used for the database of technical reports.

- Abstract of the project : it is aimed at coordinating research on representing, modeling and processing knowledge related to digital shapes, where by shape it is meant any individual object having a visual appearance which exists in some (two-, three- or higher- dimensional) space (e.g., pictures, sketches, images, 3D objects, videos, 4D animations, etc.).
