Presentations from the Conference

Most of the invited speaker presentations and a selection of minisymposia presentations from the 2011 Conference on Computational Science & Engineering have been captured and are available as slides with synchronized audio.  In addition there are PDF’s of the slides available for printing.  View presentation slides with synchronized audio.

Contributed presentations in poster format are invited in all areas consistent with the conference themes. Presentations involve the use of non-electronic visual aids for mounting on a 4' x 8' poster board.  In addition, this conference will feature a plenary “Poster-Blitz” session. Each poster presenter will be given a one-minute time slot to talk about and advertise the work preceding the poster session. For participating in the blitz session, each submission of a poster must include exactly two slides (no exceptions!) in PDF-format that will be displayed during the Poster-Blitz.  Presenters of accepted posters will be contacted with instructions of where to submit slides. 

Additional submissions for poster presentations are being accepted through January 31, 2011. Accepted submissions will not appear in the final printed program but will appear online. Interested parties should submit using the online submission site.  Note this submission site is for poster submissions only.  Submissions of any other type will not be acknowledged.  This deadline will not be extended.

Note: Extended deadline is for poster submissions only. No additional minisymposium proposals or lecture submissions are being considered.

Poster Blitz

Participants are encouraged to consider submitting posters as alternatives to contributed talks. CS&E-11 will feature a plenary “Poster-Blitz” session. Each poster presenter will be given a one-minute time slot to talk about and advertise the work preceding the poster session. For participating in the blitz session, each submission of a poster must include exactly two slides (no exceptions!) in PDF format that will be displayed during the Poster-Blitz.

Computational Science and Engineering (CS&E) is now widely accepted, along with theory and experiment, as the critical third pillar of scientific discovery. It is indispensable for leading edge investigation and engineering design in a vast number of industrial sectors, including for example,  aerospace, automotive, biological chemical, and semiconductor technologies  that all rely increasingly on advanced modeling and simulation. CS&E has also become essential at government agencies for informing policy and decisions relating to human health, resources, transportation, and defense. Finally, in many new areas such as medicine, the life sciences, management and marketing (e.g. data- and stream mining), and finance, techniques and algorithms from CS&E are of growing importance.

CS&E is by nature interdisciplinary.  Its goals concern understanding and analyzing complex systems, predicting their behavior, and eventually optimizing processes and designs.  CS&E thus grows out of physical applications, while  depending  on computer architecture, and having at its core powerful algorithms.  At the frontiers of CS&E there remain many open problems and challenges, including for example, the validation and verification of computational models especially in the presence of uncertainties and  the analysis and assimilation of very large data sets, including techniques for visualization and animation.

The SIAM CS&E conference seeks to enable in-depth technical discussions on a  wide variety of major computational efforts on large problems in science and engineering, foster the interdisciplinary culture required to meet these large-scale challenges, and promote the training of the next generation of computational scientists.
