Preliminary Program

Ninth SIAM Conference on Parallel Processing for Scientific Computing

Ninth SIAM Conference on
Parallel Processing for Scientific Computing
March 22-24, 1999
Adam's Mark San Antonio-Riverwalk Hotel, San Antonio, Texas
Sponsored by SIAM Activity Group on Supercomputing

Held jointly for the first time with the
Fifth SIAM Conference on
Mathematical and Computational Issues in the Geosciences

This is a visible and important international meeting for parallel scientific computing and parallel numerical algorithms. The conference provides a forum for communication among the applied mathematics and scientific computing communities and researchers in other disciplines, such as computer science and geoscience.

For this ninth conference, we have chosen to emphasize the interaction with application scientists who have large scale computation, data, and storage needs which lead to the use of parallel machines.The conference will be held jointly with the Fifth SIAM Conference on Geosciences, with overlap sessions planned to encourage interaction among participants of both meetings. In addition, some of the invited speakers will be talking about parallel computing opportunities in novel application domains.

SIAM Activity Group on Supercomputing
Mission Statement

The activity group on supercomputing provides a forum for computational mathematicians, computer scientists, computer architects, and computational scientists to exchange ideas on mathematical algorithms and computer architecture needed for high-performance computer systems. The group's activities promote this interaction by focusing on the interplay of analytical methods, numerical analysis, and efficient computation. In addition to organizing the biennial SIAM Parallel Processing conference, the group cosponsors other conferences and provides an electronic newsletter to all members.

Funding Agency

SIAM and the Conference Organizing Committee wish to extend their thanks and appreciation to the Department of Energy for its support of this conference.
