SISC Copper Mountain Special Section

Call for Papers

The 12th Copper Mountain Conference on Iterative Methods is scheduled from 25 March - 30 March, 2012 ( As in previous even-numbered years, the SIAM Journal on Scientific Computing (SISC) is planning a Special Section, dedicated to recent progress in iterative methods.

Submissions are encouraged in all aspects of iterative methods including the following areas: stochastic PDEs and uncertainty, PageRank and Markov chains, inverse problems and regularization, optimization, PDE systems, hardware effects/multicore architectures, hybrid direct-iterative methods, constrained problems from PDEs, Krylov accelerators, and nonlinear solvers and applications.

The deadline for submission to the Special Section is June 15, 2012. Attendees and participants of the conference as well as the general community are invited to submit papers. Papers will be subject to review by a guest Editorial Board.


All interested should submit a manuscript and cover letter in PDF format via SISC's online submission site at Note the block labeled Section (just under the keywords block on your submission screen) and select "Special Section" from the dropdown box. Directly below this is a block labeled Special Section, where you'll want to select "Copper Mountain Special Section 2012" from the dropdown.
