ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

Computational Science and Engineering (CS&E) is now widely accepted, along with theory and experiment, as a crucial third mode of scientific investigation and engineering design. Aerospace, automotive, biological, chemical, semiconductor, and other industrial sectors now rely on simulation for technical decision support. For federal agencies also, CS&E has become an essential support for decisions on resources, transportation, and defense.

CS&E is by nature interdisciplinary. It grows out of physical applications and it depends on computer architecture, but at its heart are powerful algorithms. Much of CS&E has involved analysis, but the future surely includes optimization and design, and especially in the presence of uncertainty. Another mathematical frontier is the assimilation of very large data sets through such techniques as adaptive multiresolution, automated feature search, and low-dimensional parameterization.

SIAM is conducting this conference on CS&E to draw attention to the tremendous range of major computational efforts on large problems in science and engineering, to promote the interdisciplinary culture required to meet these large-scale challenges, and to encourage the training of the next generation of computational scientists.

Funding

SIAM and the Organizing Committee would like to express their thanks and appreciation to the Department of Energy for it's support in conducting this conference.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

You are invited to contribute a presentation for this conference in one of the following formats.

MINISYMPOSIA

A minisymposium consists of four 25-minute presentations, with an additional five minutes for discussion after each presentation. Prospective minisymposium organizers are asked to submit a proposal consisting of a title, a description (not to exceed 100 words), and a list of speakers and titles of their presentations using the Conference Management System available at: http://www.siam.org/meetings/CSE03/part.htm

It is recommended that the minisymposium organizer make the first presentation. Each minisymposium speaker should submit a 75-word abstract. Contributed minisymposia will be refereed by the Organizing Committee. The number of minisymposia may be limited to retain an acceptable level of parallelism in the conference sessions.

For further minisymposium organizer and participant information, please visit:
http://www.siam.org/meetings/resources/miniguid.htm

Deadline for submission of minisymposium proposals: July 16, 2002

CONTRIBUTED PRESENTATIONS IN LECTURE OR POSTER FORMAT

Contributed presentations in lecture or poster format are invited in all areas consistent with the conference themes. A lecture format involves a 15-minute oral presentation with an additional 5 minutes for discussion. A poster format involves the use of visual aids such as 8-1/2" x 11" sheets for mounting on a 4' x 6' poster board. A poster session is two hours long. Each contributor, either for a lecture or a poster, must submit a title and a brief abstract not to exceed 75 words.

Please submit contributed presentations in lecture or poster format using the Conference Management System available at: http://www.siam.org/meetings/CSE03/part.htm

Deadline for submission of contributed abstracts: August 13, 2002.

ELECTRONIC SUBMISSION

Please use SIAM's Conference Management System to submit minisymposium proposals, minisymposium abstracts and contributed abstracts in lecture or poster format.
