High Performance Numerical Software Libraries

10:45 AM-12:45 PM
Room: Capitol South

The aim of this minisymposium is to bring together experts in the field of numerical software libraries for parallel computing and provide the audience with a broad view of the current state of the art. The speakers will discuss problems in designing such libraries and will present new methods and software for large dense and sparse computations as well as perspectives on the design and development of software environments.
