CTAC2010 was the 15th biennial Computational Techniques and Applications Conference, and took place at the University of New South Wales from 28 November to 1 December, 2010. The ANZIAM Special Interest Group in Computational Techniques and Applications is responsible for the CTAC meetings, the first of which was held in 1981. Mike Osborne recorded some of the early history of CTAC in this online article [ANZIAM J(E), 42 (2000)]

This Special Section of the ANZIAM Journal (Electronic Supplement) contains the refereed conference papers.

Seven invited speakers participated in the conference:

The presentation by Jamie Sethian was a public lecture.

The conference attracted a further 91 contributed talks. All articles appearing in the CTAC2010 proceedings have been peer reviewed by two referees, and in most cases undergone revision prior to acceptance.

The editors, William McLean and Tony Roberts, thank all of the referees whose efforts have contributed greatly to the quality of the conference proceedings.
