The International Conference on Advances in Scientific Computing will be held at Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, USA, on December 6-8, 2009, to honor the memory of Professor David Gottlieb, to review recent advances and to explore exciting new directions in scientific computing and related numerical solution of partial differential equations and mathematical modeling for time dependent problems and its applications. The conference will emphasize the crucial role of significant mathematics in the design of advanced algorithms applicable to real world problems.

The conference will consists of invited talks by people ranging from numerical analysts with a strong interest in applications to applied and computational mathematicians to engineers, physicists and scientists in other fields. There will also be a contributed poster session.
