The 2nd International Conference on Scientific Computing and Partial Differential Equations
The First East Asia SIAM Symposium

December 12-16, 2005
Lam Woo Conference Center, Hong Kong Baptist University
Hong Kong.




There have been very rapid developments of efficient algorithms on scientific computing and related investigations of mathematical issues of partial differential equations and image processing over the past decade. As a result, many problems in diverse application fields such as fluid dynamic, image processing, computer vision, and computer graphics in the entertainment industry can now be routinely simulated to high resolution. It is our intention to orgainize a well respected international conference series on Scientific Computing and Partial Differential Equations in Hong Kong. The first of this conference series was held at Hong Kong Baptist University in December 2002, and was a highly successful event. Many top scientists in the area of scientific computing, including Academicians from USA, Sweden, France and China, attended the conference and presented their research results. A conference proceedings was published in American Mathematical Society’s Contemporary Mathematics series, a prestigious volume series of AMS. More details about the conference can be viewed at


In the second of this conference series, we would like to review recent developments and to explore exciting new directions in scientific computing and partial differential equations for time dependent problems and its interaction with other fields such as image processing, computer vision and graphics. An emphasis of this conference, which we hope will set it apart from others, is the strong interaction of significant mathematics with advanced algorithms applicable to real world applications.

There have been very rapid developments of Scientific Computing in Hong Kong over the past decade. As Hong Kong transforms itself into a high-tech industrial region, the need for scientific computing will rise dramatically. This conference will further promote research interests in scientific computation in Hong Kong.

The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) is the major society for Applied Mathematicians. There are many chapters and sections for the SIAM in many regions in the world. The East Asia SIAM was formed a few years ago, but its first conference has not yet been held. The East Asia SIAM has recently decided to organize its first conference jointly with the 2005 International Conference on Scientific Computing and Partial Differential Equations.
