2017 Call for Regular Papers

Chair: David Swart
Submission deadline: 01 February 2017

Regular papers report on new research in mathematical art, and are six or eight pages in length. The Bridges Conference is looking for papers that have a mathematical component, an artistic component, and clear connections between the two. Prospective authors can visit the Bridges Archive for examples of papers from past years. Every regular paper will be granted a 30-minute slot in the program, during which the authors are expected to give a 20 minute presentation and answer questions.

As with other academic conferences, the primary goal of Bridges is for people to meet and interact. We expect that at least one author of any submitted paper will attend the conference in person, and reserve the right to revoke acceptance otherwise.

In order to maximize the diversity of authors and keep the proceedings a reasonable size, each conference participant can be the main author and presenter on at most one regular paper, short paper, or workshop paper.

All papers must be formatted as they would appear in the conference proceedings. Please follow the formatting guidelines when preparing a submission. Papers that ignore the formatting guidelines or the length limits may be returned without review. To submit a paper, please follow our paper submission process


We will distribute the Proceedings book at the conference. Therefore, there is a tight and firm schedule:

  • Initial submission: 01 February 2017
  • Author notification: 30 March 2017
  • Final manuscript submission: 30 April 2017

All papers must follow the schedule specified here. You must also register for the conference by April 30. Please note that a non-refundable full conference registration is required by at least one author of each paper.
