Venue: 

Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey

Short description of the event: 

ICACM marks the 10th anniversary of the Institute of Applied Mathematics (IAM) at METU and aims to highlight the recent advances in applied and computational mathematics as well as to demonstrate their applicability in science, engineering and industry. In addition to the traditional and strong focus on applied and computational mathematics, the special emphasis will be given to information security and cryptology, financial mathematics, actuarial sciences, scientific computing and their applications.

Dear Colleague,

Call For Papers
It is our great pleasure to inform you that as the Institute of Applied Mathematics (IAM) at the Middle East Technical University (METU), we are organizing an "International Conference on Applied and Computational
Mathematics" (ICACM) on the occasion of the 10th Anniversary of the Foundation of IAM. The conference will be held at the METU Campus, in Ankara, Turkey between October 3-6, 2012.

The conference (ICACM) will highlight the recent advances in applied and computational mathematics and demonstrate their applicability to science, engineering as well as industry. In addition to the existing traditional
strong focus on applied and computational mathematics, the special emphasis will be given to Cryptology, Coding Theory, Financial and Actuarial Mathematics, and Scientific Computing as well as related theory and applications. Moreover, the editors of Journal of Computational and Applied Mathematics (JCAM) have agreed to publish the proceedings of ICACM as a special issue.

We wish to invite you to submit your (extended) abstracts or the research papers for presentation at the conference. Celebrating the 10th birthday of our institute (IAM) with your precious contribution to ICACM is very much appreciated. Topics and themes focused covered at ICACM will include, but not limited to

Cryptology
Information Security
Public Key Infrastructure
Coding Theory
Finite Fields and their Applications
