Computer Science and Engineering (CS&E) is, along with theory and experiment, the critical third pillar of scientific discovery. It is indispensable for leading edge investigation and engineering design in a vast number of industrial sectors, including aerospace, automotive, biological chemical, and semiconductor technologies that all rely increasingly on advanced modeling and simulation. CS&E has also become essential for informing policy and decisions at government agencies on human health, resources, transportation, and defense. In many new areas such as medicine, the life sciences, management and marketing (e.g. data- and stream mining), and finance, techniques and algorithms from CS&E are of growing importance.
