Mailing Lists and Forums


Public Mailing Lists

CGAL User Forum/Mailing List : cgal-discuss

This mailing list is a discussion forum for users to communicate with other CGAL users and CGAL developers. The language is English. The traffic is about 5-10 mails a day on average, and the list gathers around 1250 subscribers. Please note that we especially appreciate that users do not post anonymously. Moreover, please pay attention to not abuse messages with large attachements (there is a hard limit of 500KB).

  • If you are new to CGAL, or simply prefer to follow the discussions or post messages sporadicaly, we suggest you to use the forum interface.
  • If you are willing to receive all traffic on your email account, you can subscribe or unsubscribe, just like for any regular mailing-list. To send a message to the list, use the address cgal-discuss@inria.fr. Note that this requires you to post using the exact same address that you used for subscribing (using different mail addresses is possible, but slightly harder to setup).
  • An archive of the discussion list is available, and easily searchable with the custom Google-search form at the bottom of the menu of this page.

CGAL Announcement Mailing List : cgal-announce

This is the mailing list to which announcements related to CGAL are posted (new releases, events, etc.). This list is moderated to keep the traffic low (a few mails a year).

Forums

If you have a CGAL related question you can also post it on stackoverflow, a Q&A website which has a hash tag for CGAL. You can subscribe for hash tags.

Contacting the CGAL project directly

If you need to contact us directly because you really consider the topic not appropriate for the public user mailing list, you can send us a mail directly. Please do not use this address for technical questions, use the cgal-discuss mailing list instead in this case.
