Abstract : This year the planned program of the conference consisted of three parts, namely: (a) Seven one hour invited addresses; (b) Thirty-two half hour solicited talks covering the following topics: Computational Solid and Structural Mechanics, Reactive and Compressible Flows, Symbolic Computing and Applications, and Parallel Computing; and (c) Thirty-two contributed papers. Most of the latter were presented by Army scientists and covered topics directly related to problems they face in their laboratories. During the course of the conference, these Army scientists had an opportunity to discuss problems with nationally known scientists.
