**Jorge Urrutia Galicia** is a Mexican mathematician and computer scientist in the Institute of Mathematics of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM).^{[1]} His research primarily concerns discrete and computational geometry.

Urrutia earned his Ph.D. from the University of Waterloo in 1980, under the supervision of Ronald C. Read.^{[2]}
He worked for many years at the University of Ottawa before moving to UNAM in 1999.^{[3]}
With Jörg-Rüdiger Sack in 1991, he was founding co-editor-in-chief of the academic journal *Computational Geometry: Theory and Applications*.^{[4]}

The Mexican Conference on Discrete Mathematics and Computational Geometry, held in 2013 in Oaxaca, was dedicated to Urrutia in honor of his 60th birthday.^{[5]}
