# Symposium on Computational Geometry

The **Annual Symposium on Computational Geometry** (**SoCG**) is an academic conference in computational geometry.^{[1]} It was founded in 1985, and was originally sponsored by the SIGACT and SIGGRAPH Special Interest Groups of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM).^{[2]} It dissociated from the ACM in 2014, motivated by the difficulties of organizing ACM conferences outside the United States and by the possibility of turning to an open-access system of publication.^{[3]} Since 2015 the conference proceedings have published by the Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics instead of by the ACM.^{[4]} Since 2019 the conference has been organized under the auspices of the newly-formed Society for Computational Geometry.^{[5]}

A 2010 assessment of conference quality by the Australian Research Council listed it as "Rank A".^{[6]}
