The Delaunay method is not only one possible method for mesh generation among others, but in many cases it yields - if it succeeds - the "right" meshes for numerical computations. Boundary conforming Delaunay meshes are essential for finite volume methods.

However, the practical realization of this concept still has serious gaps. Bridging these gaps - as we believe - is possible only by thorough algorithmical research.

The workshop shall focus on open problems in this direction and on mathematically founded approaches to solve them. Among them are
