Scientific Computation, Modelling and Applied Mathematics
Berlin, August 24-29, 1997


IMACS - The International Association for Mathematics and Computers in Simulation
is an organization of professionals and scientists concerned with computers,
computation and applied mathematics, in particular, as they apply
to the simulation of systems. This includes numerical analysis, mathematical
modelling, approximation theory, computer hardware and software, programming
languages and compilers.
IMACS also concerns itself with the general philosophy of scientific computation
and applied mathematics, and with their impact on society and on disciplinary and
interdisciplinary research.
IMACS is one of the five international scientific associations (with IFAC, IFORS,
IFIP and IMEKO) represented in FIACC, the five international organizations in the
area of computers, automation, instrumentation and the relevant branches of
applied mathematics. Of the five, IMACS (which changed its name from AICA in
1976) is the oldest, having been founded in 1956.

Berlin - The Host City of the 15th IMACS World Congress 1997

Berlin, the location of the 15th IMACS World Congress, is situated in the centre of Europe on the river "Spree" and "Havel" and covers an area of 889 square kilometres. With 3.5 million inhabitants, Berlin is the largest city in
Germany, and one of the liveliest, most interesting, and most rapidly changing capitals in the world. Various historical buildings remind the visitor of the time when Berlin was the capital of Prussia. Such historical sights as the "Deutsche Staatsoper", the "Humboldt-Universitat", the "Museum fur Deutsche Geschichte" or the "Prinzen Palais" are located along the boulevard "Unter den Linden", between the "Brandenburger Tor" and the "Lustgarten" square. Together with one of the most beautiful squares of th
e world, the "Gendarmenmarkt" square, with the two cathedrals "Franz"osischer Dom", "Deutscher Dom" and the concert hall "Schauspielhaus", they attract thousands of tourists from all over world every year.
Berlin is proud of its large and varied cultural scene which includes: three opera houses, more than 150 theatres and concert halls, 400 independent theater groups, 200 art galleries, 120 cinemas, numerous other cultural centers. In the over 70 museums, located e.g. in Dahlem, Tiergarten or on the Museums Island various treasures of world class are exhibited, e.g. the Pergamon Altar and the bust of the egyptian queen Nefertiti, just to name two. What makes Berlin's cultural atmosphere so dynamic is the
coexistance of the established entertainment industry and the countless independent artists, painters and sculptors, composers and musicians, poets and writers who make up the local "scene". On average Berlin has 250 exhibitions running on a given day.
In no other city, the historical events of recent years have taken more effect in both the urban panorama and in people's lives. The collapse of the Berlin Wall and the Iron Curtain, which separated Europe, has been offering new development perspectives for Berlin. In the next few years Berlin will also become again the seat of the parliament and government of Germany.
Berlin is also a city of sciences. In the large universities, the "Freie Universit"at", the "Humboldt-Universit"at", and the "Technische Universit"at" as well as several other colleges, more than 150,000 students are currently enrolled. In addition to the universities, Berlin is home to approximately 220 research institutes which offer immeasurable assistance to the financial, technological and social institutions. During the World Congress several local research departments will host their own sess
ions, presenting activities in the area of applied mathematics and computer sciences.
