This interdisciplinary conference, which is held every two years, provides a joint forum where mathematicians, scientists, and engineers from academia and industry can exchange research ideas involving theoretical and applied developments in differential equations and computational simulations.  In addition to the ten principal lectures, there will be sessions of contributed talks.  Reviewed manuscripts will be published as a special issue of the Electronic Journal of Differential Equations.

Abstracts for contributed papers should be submitted electronically no later than March 31, 2001. Pre-registration deadline is May 1, 2001.  For further information on the conference organization, program and submission of abstracts contact the program chair, Dr. Jianping Zhu, at jzhu@math.msstate.edu or the organizers:
