Introduction
------------

The 2001 International Conference on Computational Science will be
held at the Hilton San Francisco and Towers Hotel, San Francisco,
California, USA, from May 28, 2001 till May 30, 2001.

Computational Science is increasingly becoming a vital part of many
scientific investigations, affecting researchers and practitioners in
areas ranging from aerospace and automotive, to chemistry,
electronics, geosciences, to mathematics, and physics.

Due to the shear size of many challenges in computational science, the
use of supercomputing, parallel processing, and sophisticated
algorithms, is inevitable.

The concentration of this Conference is in the realms of computational
science in parallel and distributed environments, encompassing the
facilitating theoretical foundations and the applications of such
large scale computations.

The Conference offers the opportunity to discuss problems and
solutions in the area, to identify new issues, and to shape future
directions for research, as well as to help industrial users apply
techniques of large scale parallel and distributed computations.

We invite you to submit a:

   o full paper of 6 to 10 pages (Letter or A4 paper) for oral
     presentation

   o short paper of 2 to 4 pages (Letter or A4 paper) for poster
     presentation

   o proposal to organize a technical session, workshop or
     minisymposium. See the Call for Events Proposals at either
     http://www.ucalgary.ca/iccs or http://www.hpcc.rdg.ac.uk/iccs for
     more information.

Submitted papers have to be original, containing new and original
results.

Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series
(currently negotiating the conditions of the contract).

Paper Submission
----------------

The submitted paper must be camera-ready and formatted according to
the rules of LNCS. See http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html
for formatting information. Please include a cover page which lists
the following:

   o name, affiliation, address and e-mail address of each author

   o name of the presenting author

   o name of the contact author

   o a maximum of 5 keywords

   o 3 nominated referees and contact information of all nominated
     referees

Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register
and present the paper. A PostScript version of your paper must be submitted
electronically to iccs2001-submit@csres.cs.rdg.ac.uk. Hard copies should
be sent only if electronic submission is not possible.

Proposal for Organizing Technical Session and Workshop
------------------------------------------------------

We invite proposals for technical sessions for technical sessions and
work shops. Each technical session will have at least 6 paper
presentations. Sessions with a large number of papers may be approved
as workshops. The session chairs will be responsible for all aspects
of their sessions; including soliciting, reviewing, and selecting the
papers. The names of session chairs will appear as Associate Editors
in the Conference proceedings. After the Conference, some sessions
will be considered for publication in appropriate journals as Special
Issues with the session proposer as the Guest Editor of the journal.

Proposals to organize technical sessions should include the following
information:

   o title of the technical session

   o name, affiliation, mailing address and e-mail address of the
     proposer(s)

   o description of the topic of the session (not exceeding 100 words)

   o a short description on how the session will be advertised (in
     most cases, the session proposer(s) solicit papers from
     colleagues and researchers whose work is known to him/her).

The proposals will be reviewed by the Special Events Committee.

The deadline for proposal submission is December 8, 2000. Please send
your proposal to iccs2001@csres.cs.rdg.ac.uk.

Proposals for Organizing Minisymposium
--------------------------------------

The organizing committee invites proposals for minisymposia in areas
related to the conference themes. A minisymposium consists of 4
related talks of 30 minutes each (25 minutes for presentation plus 5
minutes for questions and answers). Prospective minisymposium
organizers are asked to submit a proposal consisting of:

   o title of the minisymposium

   o name, affiliation, mailing address, and e-mail address of
     minisymposium chair and co-chair

   o description of the minisymposium (not exceeding 100 words)

   o names of speakers, along with the following for each speaker:

        - affiliation, address, and e-mail address

        - title of their presentation

Each speaker should submit a 200-word abstract in the Springer-Verlag
LNCS format. See http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html for
formatting information.

Minisymposium organizers should consider the following recommendations
when designing their sessions.

   o Speakers should be selected primarily for their current
     contributions to the topic area and should be as representative
     of researchers in the area as is practicable. In particular, we
     discourages minisymposia in which most of the speakers come from
     one organization, or are all co-authors on the papers being
     presented in the minisymposium.

   o The first speaker should provide an overview of the topic area,
     put the area in current perspective, and suggest new avenues for
     continued research and application.

   o Organizers are encouraged to include women and members of
     underrepresented minorities as speakers whenever appropriate.

The Special Events Committee will review contributed minisymposia and
reserves the right to limit the number of minisymposia to maintain an
acceptable level of parallelism in the meeting sessions.

The deadline for proposal submission is December 8, 2000. Please send
your proposal to iccs2001@csres.cs.rdg.ac.uk.
