First announcement


11th GAMM - IMACS International Symposium
on Scientific Computing, Computer Arithmetic,
and Validated Numerics

Fukuoka, Japan
October 4 - 8, 2004

The international SCAN symposia series have been held under the joint sponsorship of GAMM and IMACS. These symposia have covered the numerical and algorithmic aspects of scientific computing, with a strong emphasis on validation and verification of computed results as well as on arithmetic, programming, and algorithmic tools for this purpose. Their objectives have been both to propagate current applications and research and to promote a greater understanding and increased awareness of the subject matters. SCAN2004 strives to become a forum for the researchers of various fields in numerical validation to discuss many existing validation tools and approaches.
Special emphasis

Late Professor Teruo Sunaga, known as one of the pioneer of interval analysis, spent 34 years from 1959 to 1993 at Kyushu University, Fukuoka, as a research associate, associate professor and full professor. He belonged to the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering. Unfortunately, he passed away in 1995 at the age of 65. SCAN2004, therefore, will be a commemorative conference for his research contribution in interval analysis as well as his very long and distinguished service in Kyushu University. During this conference, we will have a special plenary lecture, presented by Professor Masao Iri, on Professor Sunaga's profile and pioneering works in interval analysis.
