When processing surfaces, at the very beginning one usually starts with a mesh in 3D-space. In order to process it and to do analysis on the surface, (e.g. smoothing, editing, building hierarchies, compressing) one usually has to parameterize the mesh in an appropriate way. Often the result of the analysis will depend on the parameterization and it is important to look for `good' parameterizations.

In the talk, we review several methods for parameterizing meshes, compare their performance and present several applications, e.g. texture mapping, surface fitting, remeshing, hierarchical representations.
