Domain decomposition is an active, interdisciplinary research area concerned with the development, analysis, and implementation of coupling and decoupling strategies in mathematical and computational models of natural and engineered systems.

Historically, it emerged from the analysis of partial differential equations, beginning with the work of Schwarz in 1870. Since the advent of hierarchical distributed memory computers, it has been motivated afresh by considerations of concurrency and locality in a wide variety of large-scale problems, continuous and discrete. The current series of international meetings began in Paris in 1987 and has settled into an 18-month cycle. Meetings have been hosted in China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Norway, Russia, Austria,the UK and the USA (see DDM home page: www.ddm.org for more information).

Contribution to the 18th international conference are encouraged in areas of numerical analysis, computer science, scientific and industrial applications, and software development. The conference includes plenary lectures by leading experts and promising young scientists, participant-initiated minisymposia, contributed talks, and posters.
