Multi-Scale Modelling 2009
Multi-Scale Modelling for
Industrial Flow Systems

7-8 December 2009, Ian Wark Conference Centre, CSIRO, Melbourne, Australia


The Proceedings of the Symposium will be published on CD-ROM.

The Committee of the Multi-Scale Modelling symposium will evaluate all submitted full papers, with each paper being independently refereed by at least two international experts in the field. 

It is intended to have both oral and poster presentations at the conference. Authors are requested to indicate their preference for either oral or poster presentation when submitting abstracts. Full versions of both the oral and poster papers will be included in the proceedings. However due to the number of invited speakers in the symposium the number of papers considered for oral presentation would be capped.

Authors should note the list of deadlines.

The symposium organising committee has arranged for selected papers to be published in a special edition of the Journal of Multi-Scale Modelling.

Deadline for receipt of papers is 30 September 2009

ABSTRACT Submission

Intending authors are required to submit an abstract of not more than 200 words by the deadline above. Instructions for preparation of the full manuscript will be sent to authors whose abstracts are accepted.

Authors are requested to indicate on the abstract their preference for either an oral or poster presentation. Where an author submits multiple papers for oral presentation the organising committee may, for scheduling reasons, allocate some papers for poster presentation.

Abstracts should be prepared using the MSWord template msm09_abs.doc and emailed to: If you prefer to submit a hard copy it should be mailed or faxed to Dr Phil Schwarz at the address below.
