CMMSE 2004 - International Conference on Computational and Mathematical Methods
June 4 - 8, 2004 at Uppsala University
Organizing committee: Erkki Brändas, Uppsala; Bo Thidé, Uppsala; Inger Ericson (secretary), Uppsala. Objectives: In the past decade significant progress has been made in many areas of scientific computing, with new problems appearing in the portrayal of modern dynamical processes in physics, chemistry, engineering, and economics. There is furthermore a constant need in these fields for the quick and efficient advancement of information exchange.
Conferences are usually organized within disciplines, like applied and computational mathematics or computational engineering. In the midst of these and various other successful annual conferences there is a niche left for unifying, cross/cutting, interdisciplinary gatherings, where specialists can have exposure to diverse fields, a chance to meet new people in their individual area of research, and to participate in special sessions different from, but still close to, their own interests.
