3rd International Conference on Scientific Computing and Partial Differential Equations (Hong Kong)

The Third International Conference on Scientific Computing and Partial Differential Equations
December 8-12, 2008

Hong Kong Baptist University, Hong Kong


It is our intention to organize a well respected international conference series on Scientific Computing and Partial Differential Equations in Hong Kong. The first of this conference series was held in December 2002 and the second conference was held in September 2005. More details about these conferences can be viewed at and

Both conferences were held at the Hong Kong Baptist University, well attended by international experts in respective disciplines and were found highly successful in providing a forum for the exchange of ideas, and latest results within a multi-disciplinary setting. Many top scientists in the area of scientific computing, including Academicians from America, Europe and China, attended the conferences and presented their research results. A conference proceeding for the first conference was published in American Mathematical Society's Contemporary Mathematics series, a prestigious volume series of AMS. The second conference proceeding was published in Science Press series, a specialized publisher for such conference proceedings.


The Third International Conference on Scientific Computing and Partial Differential Equations series aims to promote research interests in scientific computation. We would like to review recent scientific developments and to explore exciting new directions in scientific computing and partial differential equations for time-dependent problems and its interaction with other fields.
There have been very rapid developments of Scientific Computing in Hong Kong, in part due to the research carried out within the Mathematics Department at the Hong Kong Baptist University, and increasing interest from sister departments in other higher education institutions in Hong Kong. As Hong Kong transforms herself into a high-tech industrial region, the need for scientific computing will rise dramatically, as scientific computing is commonly acknowledged to provide a third arm to research; the other arms being theoretical and experimental techniques.
