Call for papers

Computational Science and Engineering (CS&E) is a rapidly growing multidisciplinary field that employs advanced computation to understand and solve complex problems. Recognizing the growing importance of and interest in CS&E, the SIAM Journal on Scientific Computing (SISC) will devote a special issue to innovative research papers in CS&E.

Many CS&E problems can be characterized by a "pipeline" that includes Modeling techniques (mathematical and geometric), Simulation techniques (discretizations, algorithms, data structures, software frameworks, and problem solving environments), and Analysis techniques (data mining, data management, visualization, and error, sensitivity, stability, and uncertainty analyses).

The guest editors are seeking cutting edge research papers that present a contribution to the development of novel computational methods for problems of the real world and describe several aspects of the CS&E pipeline involved in solving the problem. Papers should illustrate new and useful techniques and tools for handling realistic problems, which often have complicated three-dimensional geometries, multiple scales, heterogeneities, anisotropies, and multi-physical or biological descriptions. Though such problem domains often thwart proofs of accuracy or efficiency, papers should address validation and verification through reduction to analyzable cases and convergence studies, as applicable, and comparisons with alternative approaches.

Deadline Extended

The deadline for the submission of papers has been extended to May 15, 2007.

Review Process

Papers will be subject to review according to SISC standards by a guest Editorial Board. Manuscripts submitted after the April 30 deadline may not be considered for the Special Issue at the discretion of the Guest Editors-in-Charge.


All interested should submit a manuscript and cover letter in PDF format via SISC's online submission site. Please see Author Instructions on the site if unfamiliar with this web-based system. Note the block labeled Special Section (just under the keywords block on your submission screen) and select "Special Issue on Computational Science and Engineering" from the dropdown box. Also be sure to note in the Manuscript Comment text box at the bottom of this page that your work is intended for the Computational Science and Engineering Special Issue.
