innovative numerical algorithms
for clusters and grids
To be held on Sept 20th, 2004, in San Diego (CA, USA),
in conjunction with the CLUSTER 2004 conference.
Accepted papers will be included in the proceedings of the
cluster'04 conference, which will be made available
on CD-ROM and be part of the IEEE on-line proceeding library.
Extended deadline for paper submissions : Tuesday May 18th
Call for papers
Numerical algorithms that solve large scale problems have been the object of extensive studies for many years.
The emergence of new environments such as clusters and grids has motivated new developments targeted to the new architectures.
Among the new problems arising: the importance of communications, the geographical distribution of the processors,
and the dynamic behavior and heterogeneity of the platforms.
All these bring new challenges to which parallel numerical algorithms need to adapt.
This workshop aims to bring together scientists interested in this field, whether they are practitioners, engineers or researchers. This will be an occasion for them to share their knowledge and experience, as well as exchange their point of view.
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Case studies and implementation of techniques/algorithms to solve large problems
- Performance comparison of numerical algorithms
- Parallel direct and iterative algorithms
- Heuristic algorithms for large problems
- Load balancing and scheduling
- Synchronous and asynchronous algorithms
- New models for cluster and/or grid computing
- Robustness, fault tolerance and extensibility
- Programming and environment tools
- Extended deadline for paper submissions : Tuesday May 18th
- Notification of acceptance : june 15th
- Camera-ready papers : july 2nd
