High Performance Scientific Computation with Applications

June 28 - July 1, 1999, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

This is a technical session organized by Jun Zhang at The 1999 International Conference on Parallel and Distributed Processing Techniques and Applications, to be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, June 28 - July 1, 1999.

Today's scientific and engineering problems demand computational power that is far beyond that can be provided by conventional computers. Large scale numerical simulations require high performance computation. Here the high performance computation is meant in its broadest sense, i.e., any computation that utilizes special architectures and power of the high performance computers is considered as high performance computation.

Scientific computations has been one of the most important components of high performance computation. It is the initial and continuous driving force behind the development of high performance computers.

The goal of this session is to bring together researchers in various areas of high performance scientific computation and applications to exchange ideas and communicate new developments.

The HPSCA session focuses on high performance and large scale numerical computation techniques and applications. Anything that is related to this topic is relevant. Please e-mail Jun Zhang at jzhang@cs.uky.edu if you are interested in presenting a paper at the High Performance Scientific Computation with Applications Session.

Important Dates:

Please note that the draft and the final papers should be e-mailed to the session organizer: Jun Zhang at jzhang@cs.uky.edu. In case an e-mail submission is inconvenient, please fax your paper at: (606) 323-1971, or mail a hard copy to:
Professor Jun Zhang
Department of Computer Science
University of Kentucky

Due to time constraints, the session organizer did not apply for financial support from any agency. As a result, the HPSCA session is unable to provide any travel support to any speakers. I am very sorry for this situation and I promise to do a better job next year.
