Introduction to the SCAN conference

This conference continues the series of international SCAN symposia held under the joint sponsorship of GAMM and IMACS. SCAN symposia have been initiated by the University of Karlsruhe, Germany, They have been held in many towns: Basel, Switzerland (1989), Varna-Albena, 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).

The scientific program will consist of 8 invited plenary lectures (1 hour, including questions) and of contributed presentations (20 minutes oral presentation followed by 5 minutes of discussion, organized into parallel sessions). Contributions are invited in all areas of interest. The language of the conference is English.

Scope and topics

The SCAN symposia gather researchers in scientific computing who work on the numerical quality and the verification of computed results. Techniques and tools in use include, but are not limited to, interval arithmetic, floating-point as specified by the IEEE 754-2008 standard, exact computations, symbolic approaches, formal proof, sensitivity analysis... The scope of the SCAN conferences covers all aspects, from theory to implementation and applications, with a strong emphasis on verification of computed results, as well as on arithmetic, programming, and algorithmic tools for this purpose.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
