The Chapter Proposal Submission Deadline is extended to the 28th of January

We are pleased to invite you to submit your proposals for the contribution
of chapters to the "Handbook of Research on Computational Science and
Engineering: Theory and Practice." This is a short call suggesting some
possible topics. You are, however, not limited to these topics. Please feel
free to propose any topics that you think are critical issues in the theme.
A full call is at http://www.cse-book.com/call/index.html.

Please forward this call to colleagues and those with an interest in CSE.

Recommended Topics:
Contributions are invited from experts in CSE who have specialist knowledge
of numerical methods, high performance computing, visualization,
developing/using domain specific applications, project management, policy
making, security, education and the sociological issues to do with its
adoption, organisation, collaboration, and cross-disciplinary nature.

Topics may include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Programming paradigms: new languages, changing demands for languages,
linguistic limitations and comparison of serial and parallel programming
languages, linguistic comparison of visual to textural programming languages

- Hardware trends: trends in computer architecture, trends in chip
architecture, chip architecture and the suitability for particular problem
types, IO trends and the affect on the IO bottleneck, optimisation of
architecture for particular problem types

- Numerical methods: the use and development of numerical methods for
particular applications, optimisation for interactivity (levels of detail),
evaluation of numerically based software, porting numerical software

- Visualization: review the state of the art of well known application
areas, new applications to visualization, design and development, user
assessment, collaborative environments, computational steering,
visualization in interactive physics (simulation as a part of virtual
reality and games)

- Software development tools and practices: review of the tools available
for parallel code development and optimisation (challenges and open-source
options), review of CASE tools for serial code development (challenges and
open-source options), "best practice," the importance of standards and

- Case studies: state of the art applications, new applications to CSE,
moving from serial to parallel, evaluation including comparing real results
to computational results, computation in design, prototype engineering, the
use of visualization, the use of collaborative working environments,
eScience (CSE delivered through the GRID and/or Web)

- Organisational and sociological issues: communicating science to the
public, security (both computer and socially), multi-disciplinary and/or
international practices in collaborative code development,
multi-disciplinary and/or international issues in the evaluation of results
and allocation of success to each party, exploration of the sociological
factors affecting multi-disciplinary collaboration, technology transfer of
the CSE method, technology transfer of computational (numerical) methods
across disciplines that use CSE, technology transfer of visualization
across disciplines that use CSE, opportunities for training and skill

Submission Procedure:
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before January
28, 2010, a 2-3 page chapter proposal clearly explaining the mission and
concerns of the proposed chapter. Details on how to submit are given at:


Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by February 7, 2010 and sent
chapter guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by August
15, 2010. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a double-blind review
basis. Contributors may also be requested to serve as reviewers for this

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to
