Welcome to the Fourth International Conference on Internet Computing for Engineering and Science (ICICSE|09) . The conference will be held in Harbin Engineering University, Harbin, China, Dec. 21-22, 2009.

Computational science is an important and urgent field with multi-disciplinary research. It focuses on algorithms development and implementations of computing for scientists and engineers. Its impact is already being felt in many science and engineering disciplines. Current research in computational science requires multi-disciplinary knowledge, not only in sciences and engineering but also in cutting-edge technologies of computing. Many science and engineering explorations rely on mature, efficient computational algorithms and implementations, practical and reliable numerical methods, and large-scale computation systems. The theme of this conference focuses on scientific computations and applications on Internet, enhancing cyberinfrastructure-based scientific and engineering collaborations. It provides a great opportunity for non-computer science professionals traveling from different fields to this conference. This conference offers academic researchers, developers, and practitioners an opportunity to discuss various aspects of computational science and engineering-related computational methods and problem solving techniques for science and engineering research.

This conference is sponsored by Harbin Engineering University, China, Scientific, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Education Society (STEMES), USA, the University of Iowa, USA. It will be operated by the conference program committee. We hope to attract people from diverse science and engineering disciplines, nationally and internationally, to attend the workshop, present their research results, share their experiences and ideas, and plan future collaborations.

The conference proceeding will be published by Conference Publishing Services (CPS). The conference will be submitted for Indexing.

We welcome people to submit paper(s), or participate conference program. Appreciations always go to people who can organize special sessions, review conference papers, and make this event successful.

Best Regards,
