Student Symposium On Interval Computations (SONIC'95)

October 20-22, 1995
University of Houston-Downtown
Houston, Texas


To promote computational science education and research at minority institutions in the South and Central United States, the Center for Research on Parallel Computation at Rice University and SC COSMIC (South and Central Computational Science in Minority Institutions Consortium) are jointly organizing the First SC COSMIC Student Conference on Computational Science. The Student Conference will be held from October 20-22, 1995, at the University of Houston-Downtown, Houston, Texas. As part of this conference, a special Symposium on Interval Computations will be organized.

Students from SC COSMIC member institutions are welcome to submit abstracts of their research projects on Interval Computations and its applications to the symposium. Recent graduates may also submit the results of their student research projects.

Abstracts should report research performed by students. To qualify for the Symposium, at least one of the authors must be a student.

If the project was directed by a faculty member, then the text of the abstract should be approved by the faculty advisor. The best papers will be published in the special issue of the International Journal of Reliable Computing (formerly, ``Interval Computations'').

Please submit an abstract (up to 2 pages) to

Dr. Vladik Kreinovich
Department of Computer Science
University of Texas at El Paso
El Paso, TX 79968
office phone (915) 747-6951

Please e-mail your submission in LaTeX (the style file IEEEtran.sty is attached). If you do not have access to LaTeX, send an ASCII file, or send a submission by regular mail.

Please indicate in the subject part of your e-mail message if you are an undergraduate or a graduate student.

In addition to student presentations, we are planning several talks by leading researchers in Interval Computations. The Student Conference also plans some talks by researchers in other areas of Computational Science and Engineering. Representatives of companies and government agencies (including NASA) will describe their activity in Computational Science and Engineering and meet with interested students.

Students from the SC COSMIC institutions may apply for financial support for presenting their papers. The corresponding request form is attached.
