The Journal Biuletyn of Polish Society for Geometry and Engineering Graphics


The Journal Biuletyn Polish Society for Geometry and Engineering Graphics is published once or twice a year by the Polish Society for Geometry and Engineering Graphics.


The scope of the Journal covers a wide range of scientific specialties within geometry and engineering graphics, and in particular its aims are to deal with the problems relating to: the place and the role geometry has in contemporary science and technique; computer science applications into solving classical geometry problems; visualization of geometrical transformations and mappings; geometrical aspects of CAD systems; computer aided education of typical geometry and graphics courses; applications of geometry in techniques; modeling of educational systems and creating new syllabuses of geometry in relation to the specialties at engineering studies; educational means and methods applied within engineering studies.


In the first place the Associate Editors are responsible for compatibility of the paper with the aims and the scope of the Journal while the Editor-in Chief holds the superseding and the decisive word.


The manuscripts are welcome to be sent in an electronic Word (*.doc or *docx) format. Wordtemplates and Style Guidelines are available on the Journal webpage: http://ogigi.polsl.pl/biuletyny/zeszyt_18/Instructions.pdf

Editor-in-Chief may take a decision concerning publication of the submitted to the Board of Editors external reviews/comments and/or discussions about any paper published in the Journal. The Journal can also publish the book reviews, conference reports, information on the activities of the Polish Society for Geometry and Engineering Graphics and information about its members.


Full versions of all of the published papers together with the Polish Summary will be included in the Journal homepage (http://ogigi.polsl.pl/biuletyny/biuletyny_ptgigi/biuletyny.aspx)
