Due to the COVID-19 situation, CTAC 2020 conference has been converted to an online mode.

The 20th Biennial Computational Techniques and Applications Conference (CTAC2020) will be held online from 30 August to 2 September, 2020.

Our aim is to conduct a high-quality conference on computational mathematics; scientific, technical and industrial applications; and high-performance computing.

Invited Speakers:

The special themes for the meeting will include:

  • Approximation theory
  • Biomathematics
  • Climate modelling
  • Computational fluid dynamics
  • Computational number theory
  • Data assimilation
  • Optimisation
  • Inverse problems
  • Data science
  • Uncertainty quantification

CTAC is organised by the special interest group in computational techniques and applications of ANZIAM, the Australian and New Zealand Industrial and Applied Mathematics Division of the Australian Mathematical Society. The meetings provide an interactive forum for researchers interested in the development and use of computational methods applied to engineering, scientific and other problems.

The CTAC meetings have been taking place biennially since 1981, the most recent being held in 2018 at the University of Newcastle.
