This single issue will be dedicated to recent progress in iterative methods. Submissions are encouraged in all aspects of iterative methods including the following highlighted areas: stochastic PDEs and uncertainty, page rank and Markov chains, inverse problems and regularization, optimization, PDE systems, hardware effects/multicore architectures, and nonlinear solvers and applications.

The deadline for submission to the Special Issue is June 15, 2008. Attendees and participants of the conference as well as the general community are invited to submit papers.

Submissions should be made using the ordinary SISC submission process with a statement in the cover letter requesting that the paper be considered for the Special Issue on iterative methods. All interested should submit a manuscript and cover letter in PDF format via SISC's online submission site at Note the block labeled Special Section (just under the keywords block on your submission screen) and select "Copper Mountain Special Issue 2008" from the dropdown box. Also be sure to note in the Manuscript Comment text box at the bottom of this page that your work is intended for the Copper Mountain Special Issue.
