                        ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS

         Eleventh International Conference on Mathematical and Computer
                       Modelling and Scientific Computing

                            March 31 - April 3, 1997
                    Georgetown University Conference Center
                              Washington, DC, USA 

        The Eleventh International Conference on Mathematical and Computer
Modelling and Scientific Computing is scheduled to take place March 31-April
3, 1997 at the Georgetown University Conference Center, Washington, DC,
U.S.A. Plenary lectures by world-renowned scientists and technical sessions
on many recent developments in engineering and sciences comprise a
long-standing tradition at the ICMCM's. Mathematical and computer modelling
and scientific computing have become powerful tools for solving complex
problems and providing greater insights into the future. The objective of
the conference is to bring together researchers from various disciplines
including the traditional and emerging areas of engineering and sciences for
cross-fertilization of ideas and exchange of information. In view of the
phenomenal growth in mathematical modelling activities and computational
technologies, we can bring about further developments by focusing on the
issues of mutual concern and through exchange of ideas. These developments
are expected to offer us a global perspective and lead us, on a rational
basis, to the solution of problems which continually arise in human endeavor. 

        Papers are invited on all aspects of mathematical and computer
modelling and scientific computing for presentation at the 11th ICMCM & SC.
Papers will be chosen on the basis of one-page (about 200-250 words)
abstracts clearly defining the work and its conclusions. Abstracts may be
submitted in hard copy or via fax or by e-mail. The abstracts must be
formatted to fit on 8-1/2 x 11 inch (approximately 21.5 cm x 28 cm or
European Standard A-4 size) paper, typed in single space. The paper title
must be capitalized and centered followed by author's name(s), institution,
and full address. Send two copies (one copy if sent by fax or e-mail) of
abstract and technical inquiries to:

special issue are due June 15, 1997. The special issue of the journal will
be published by September 1997.
