CTAC2012 was the 16th biennial Computational Techniques and Applications Conference, and took place at Queensland University of Technology from 23 - 26 September, 2012. 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 Jeff Kepert was a public lecture.

The conference attracted a further 95 contributed talks. All articles appearing in the CTAC2012 proceedings have been peer reviewed by at least two referees, and in most cases undergone revision prior to acceptance.

The editors, Scott McCue, Timothy Moroney, Dann Mallet and Judith Bunder, thank all of the referees whose efforts have contributed greatly to the quality of the conference proceedings.
