Workshop on Scientific Computing, 2001 Workshop on Scientific Computing, 2001

December 14, 2001

Chinese University of Hong Kong

Room 715, Mong Man Wai Building


This one-day workshop is the sequel to the series of workshops on Scientific Computing that were held in Hong Kong in the past ten years. It aims to promote research interest in scientific computation for local mathematicians and engineers and to foster contacts and exchanges with experts from other parts of the world.

Invited Speakers:

Organizing Committee:

The workshop is organized by Raymond Chan (CUHK), Franklin Luk (CUHK), Michael Ng (HKU), Wei-Wei Sun (CityU) and Tao Tang (HKBU).


The workshop is sponsored by the Departments of Mathematics at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong Baptist University, and University of Hong Kong and also by the Institute of Mathematical Sciences and the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. It is one of the activities to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Faculty of Engineering at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
