The goal of the International Journal, "CMES: Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences" is to bring together researchers from the three general areas of:
- Contemporary Engineering, Physical, Chemical and Biological Sciences,
- Systems Integration Through Computations, and
- Advanced Communications and Information Processing Technologies,
to foster a stronger multi- & inter-disciplinary research for the advancement of computational modeling capabilities in the coming decades. This will be the unique role of "CMES: Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences" in the archival literature. Also, Computer Modeling is expected to play a dominant role in Information technology, as the later discipline evolves in the coming decades. Information technology will depend not only on the hardware associated with computing, communications, large scale data management, informatics, etc., but even more strongly on the software, whose core can be characterized as Computational Modeling as enumerated above.
These are the motivations that prompted the creation, in 2000, of "CMES: Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences". As it enters its fourth year of publication, with Volume 4 and 6 issues in 2003, it is clear that CMES is well on its way to fulfill its mission. Also, because of the ever-increasing flow of manuscripts, and a large back-log of papers in spite of very stringent review and acceptance procedures, CMES will be published monthly, with 2 Volumes and 12 issues, beginning January 2004.
