First announcement

The MCQMC conferences were created by Harald Niederreiter and have become the world's major event on both Monte Carlo and Quasi-Monte methods. The meeting in Warsaw will follow the successful meetings in Las Vegas, USA (1994), Salzburg, Austria (1996), Claremont, USA (1998), Hong Kong (2000), Singapore (2002), Juan-Les-Pins, France (2004), Ulm, Germany (2006) and Montréal, Canada (2008).

The MCQMC Conference is a biennial meeting devoted to the study of Monte Carlo (MC) and quasi-Monte Carlo (QMC) methods, the relationships between the two classes of methods, and their effective application in various areas. The conference attracts between 150 and 200 participants. Its aim is to provide a forum where both the leading researchers and the users can exchange on the latest theoretical developments and important applications of these methods. The conference focuses primarily on the mathematical study of these techniques, their implementation and adaptation for concrete applications, and their empirical assessment.

Format

Five days of conference with 10 invited one-hour plenary talks, and several 30-minute talks organized in sessions of 3 or 4 talks, including some special thematic sessions, with at most three parallel sessions at a time. A selection of papers from the conference will be published after the conference, most likely as a Springer-Verlag book, as was the case for the eight previous editions.

Call for Abstracts and Special Sessions

Abstracts for contributed talks should fit on one page and include the title of the talk, the name, email address (or web page), affiliation, and full postal address of the speaker, the names and emails of co-authors (if any), and a summary of the talk with enough information to assess the relevance and novelty of the results.

Proposals for special sessions will be accepted on a limited basis. They should contain a short description of the theme and scope of the session, the name of the organizer, and the names of the four proposed speakers, preferably from different Universities.

The time of all non-plenary talks will be 25 minutes and 5 minutes for discussion. The deadline for abstracts of contributed talks and proposals for special sessions is March 15, 2010. The abstracts and proposals for special sessions should be submitted preferably as pdf or ASCII text files to

Notification of acceptance will be given by April 30, 2010
