Information For Authors
Submit your Summaries by Wednesday, December 23, 2020!
M&C 2021 Author Instructions
The ANS Mathematics and Computation Division (MCD) is interested in the mathematical and computational aspects of all of the ANS division work areas. The following are considered guidelines for acceptable MCD papers and are intended to augment the general ANS acceptance guidelines.
The initial paper review will be conducted on the basis of fourpage extended summaries. The extended summaries should be prepared using either the MS Word or LaTeX M&C 2021 templates provided. Both the extended summaries and full papers should describe original work that is of interest to the ANS Mathematics and Computation community. The criteria for acceptance of technical papers is given below.
Final Full Papers
The final full papers for accepted summaries must be prepared using either the MS Word or LaTeX M&C 2021 templates provided. The page limit for M&C 2021 papers is 10 pages. Papers longer than 10 pages will be billed at $100/page in excess of 10 pages. It is strongly recommended that the length of any final paper should not exceed 12 pages.
M&C 2021 Author and Reviewer Guidelines
The ANS Mathematics and Computation Division (MCD) is interested in the mathematical and computational aspects of all of the ANS division work areas. The following are considered guidelines for acceptable MCD papers and are intended to augment the general ANS acceptance guidelines.

The paper should describe original work that is of interest to the ANS MCD membership:

mathematical theory

computational methods

numerical analysis

new understanding of existing methods/algorithms

new benchmark comparisons

methods, algorithms, or performance on new computer architectures


The paper should clearly describe the new aspects of the work in relation to the literature.

An acceptable paper should reflect the contents and scope of the work and provide sufficient purpose, background description, and results to be understandable, informative, and reproducible.

Except for new mathematical analysis and analytical solutions, numerical results are mandatory. Where possible, comparisons of accuracy, efficiency, and stability should be made to currently used methods.

The authors should make sound conclusions based on the new work.

Some special consideration may be given to papers that are part of a special session organized around a common theme. For example, it may be acceptable to omit background information common to all the papers in the session.
