The PPAM 2009 conference, eighth in a series, will cover topics in parallel and distributed processing, including theory and applications, as well as applied mathematics. The focus will be on models, algorithms, and software tools which facilitate efficient and convenient utilization of modern parallel and distributed computing architectures, as well as on large-scale applications.

The Minisymposium APCI&E is going to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners using parallel computations for solution of complex industrial and engineering applied problems.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

* Application of parallel numerical methods to engineering and industrial problems
* Scientific computation
* Parallel algorithms for solution of systems of PDEs
* Parallel algorithms for optimization
* GRIDs for solution of data and computation intensive real world problems
* Parallel algorithms for multicore computers

Submission of Papers                                            April 30, 2009
Notification of acceptance:                                     May 31, 2009
Full papers (LNCS style):                                       June 10, 2009
Camera-ready papers (at most 10 pages):              October 31, 2009


Original papers are invited for the conference. Authors should submit full papers (draft version, PDF file, together with abstract) to the conference office before April 10, 2009. Regular papers are not to exceed 10 pages (LNCS style). Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their scientific merit and relevance to the conference topics. Abstracts of accepted papers will be available during the conference in form of a brochure. Only papers presented at PPAM 2009 will be included into the proceedings, which is planned to be published after the conference by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series. Full camera-ready versions of accepted papers will be required by October 31, 2009.

Please follow the instructions provided at the homepage of PPAM2009 to upload your paper. Specify minisymposium selecting a track "MS: Applications of Parallel Computation in Industry and Engineering"

The authors of selected papers of this MS will be invited to submit an extended version of their work to the journal "Mathematical Modelling and Analysis"
