General information

The conference is dedicated to David Hestenes for his remarkable achievements as creator of Geometric Algebra and to promote its applications in physics, mathematics, computer science and engineering

Opening talk by David Hestenes: Maxwell–Dirac QED

The conference PROCEEDINGS have been published at Mathematical Methods in the Applied Sciences.

The 8th Conference on Applied Geometric Algebras in Computer Science and Engineering is organized by

  • Institute of Mathematics, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Brno University of Technology
and will take place in Brno (Czech Republic) from 6th to 10th September 2021. Online participation also available via ZOOM.

The conference has three main goals:

  • To promote the development of the geometric algebra and geometric calculus.
  • To spread geometric algebra technologies within industry and business by showing a range of applications (image processing, computer vision, robotics, flight navigation, molecular geometry, etc.).
  • To make progress on the inclusion of geometric algebra ideas into the mathematics, physics, computer science and engineering curricula.

Organizers: Jaroslav Hrdina, Aleš Návrat, Petr Vašík, Radomil Matoušek
