The XVIIth International Symposium on Mathematical Methods Applied to the Sciences (XVII SIMMAC) is the most important event in applied mathematics in Central America. It is organized by the School of Mathematics and the Center for Research in Pure and Applied Mathematics (CIMPA) of the University of Costa Rica every two years.
Since 1978, this activity has been developped with the participation of several mathematicians and scientists of affine disciplines, coming from Central America, Europe, North America and South America.
XVII SIMMAC will take place from February 16th to 19th, 2010.

The XVII SIMMAC will be held the "Rodrigo Facio" campus of the University of Costa Rica, in San Pedro, near San José, the capital of the country.
Sessions will take place in the Education building (Edificio de la Facultad de Educación), 1st floor.
In February, climate in Costa Rica is cool (17ºC-23ºC, 62ºF - 74ºF) in San José and warm on the coast (20ºC-26ºC, 68ºF - 80ºF), sunny, and sometimes windy. Usually, it does not rain in this period.

REMARK: please, avoid the use of macros in the abstract.
The Scientific Committee will decide which accepted communications will be presented in sessions of 40 minutes and which in 20 minutes.
After the XVII SIMMAC, a selection of full articles evaluated by the Scientific Committee will be published at the journal Revista de Matematica: Teoria y Aplicaciones.

After the SIMMAC, the proceedings of the Symposium will be published as a special issue of the Revista de Matematica: Teoria y Aplicaciones (Journal of Mathematics: Theory and Applications), and the Scientific Committee of the SIMMAC and the Editorial Board of the journal will submit the article to specialized referees. Only articles prepared according to these instructions and actually presented during the Symposium will be considered for publication.

Authors interested in the publication of the complete article, should bring during the XVII SIMMAC the complete version of their communication, with a maximum of 10 pages (including figures), on a digital file (in Windows format, free of virus), 3 printed versions and a letter of submission addressed to the Scientific Committee of the SIMMAC, signed by all authors. This version will be submitted to referees and does not require a special format. In case that the article is accepted for publication, authors should follow the guidelines of the journal, which appear in the Website:
