ECG is a European Project supported by the IST Programme of the European Union.

Participating Sites are:
INRIA Sophia Antipolis - France, Prisme and Galaad Groups.
ETH Zürich - Switzerland, Theory of Combinatorial Algorithms Group.
Freie Universität Berlin - Germany, Group Theoretical Computer Science.
Rijksuniversiteit Groningen - Netherlands, High-Performance Computing and Imaging Group.
MPI Saarbrücken - Germany, Algorithms and Complexity Group.
Tel Aviv University - Israel, School of Computer Science.

The ECG project is focused on effectively handling curved objects.

The overall objectives of the project are:

- To take into consideration the multidisciplinary nature of the problem and to develop cooperative research in three main directions: computational geometry, computer algebra and numerical analysis.
- To give Effective Computational Geometry for Curves and Surfaces solid mathematical and algorithmic foundations, to provide solutions to key problems and to validate our theoretical advances through extensive experimental research and the development of software packages that could serve as steps towards a standard for safe and effective geometric computing.
- To promote collaborative research, the interchange between the partners (workshops), exchanges of Ph.D. students and research staff.
- To disseminate our results through research reports, open source softwares, software packages and through a program of open activities including summer-schools and advanced courses intended to academia and industry.

L E D A   is used by several project partners for the implementation of their respective project part.
