Symposium: Advanced Mathematical Tools: A Frontier Between Mathematics and Engineering,
August 13-16, 2006, University Park, Pennsylvania,
Rafal Ablamowicz, Department of Mathematics, Tennessee Technological University
Jane Liu, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Tennessee Technological University


Advanced mathematics provides new approaches to solving many current and future engineering problems. Developing and applying new computational tools and algorithms achieve advances in engineering research. The purpose of this symposium is to facilitate interaction among engineering researchers, scientists, and applied mathematicians in order to find, on one hand, new applications for some advanced mathematical methods, and, on the other, to find better and more promising mathematical tools for today’s challenging engineering problems. The organizers invite engineers, scientists and mathematicians to share and present their ideas and most recent advances, both theoretical and applied, in mathematics and engineering mechanics in one or more of the following areas:

Call for Abstracts and Papers:

Contributed 20-minute (including discussion) papers are invited. Abstracts must be submitted by February 24, 2006 via the conference page. Complete papers must be submitted by July 7, 2006, to one of the symposium organizers: Dr. Rafal Ablamowicz or Dr. Jane Liu.

Submissions and deadlines:

The organizers of this symposium encourage high quality submissions for a possible inclusion in one of Birkhäuser's volumes in applied mathematics, such as, for example, "Trends in Mathematics". All  papers will have a page limit of 8 to 10 pages and they will be externally refereed. The deadlines are as follows:
