General information

The 15th GAMM–IMACS International Symposium on Scientific Computing, Computer Arithmetic and Verified Numerical Computations will take place in Novosibirsk, at the Institute of Computational Technologies of the Siberian Department of the Russian Academy of Sciences, on September 23–29, 2012.

This conference continues the series of international SCAN symposia initiated by University of Karlsruhe, Germany, and held under the joint auspices of GAMM and IMACS. SCAN symposia have been held in many cities across the world:

  Karlsruhe, Germany (1988)
  Basel, Switzerland (1989)
  Albena–Varna, Bulgaria (1990)
  Oldenburg, Germany (1991)
  Vienna, Austria (1993)
  Wuppertal, Germany (1995)
  Lyon, France (1997)  
  Budapest, Hungary (1998)
  Karlsruhe, Germany (2000)
  Paris, France (2002)
  Fukuoka, Japan (2004)
  Duisburg, Germany (2006)
  El Paso, Texas, USA (2008)
  Lyon, France (2010)

SCAN'2012 strives to advance the frontiers in verified numerical computations, interval methods, as well as their application to computational engineering and science.

Pre-conference Workshop

SCAN'2012 is preceded by the Constraint Programming and Decision Making Workshop CoProD'2012 on September 23, 2012.

Meeting Format

The scientific program will consist of invited plenary lectures and contributed presentations. Each plenary lecture is a 45-minute talk followed by a 5-minute discussion. Each contributed presentation is a 20-minute oral presentation followed by a 5-minute discussion. Contributed presentations will be organized into parallel sessions.

The conference language is English.


SCAN'2012 publications include


The conference SCAN'2012 will be held at Institute of Computational Technologies (ICT) of the Siberian Department of the Russian Academy of Sciences. This institute is located in the famous Novosibirsk Akademgorodok, one of Russia's major scientific centers, home to more than twenty scientific institutions.

The time of the conference coincides with the most picturesque season in Siberia, local Indian summer and golden leaf fall.
