The 4th Workshop on High Performance Scientific and Engineering Computing with Applications (HPSECA-02)

   The Renaissance Vancouver Hotel Harbourside
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

August 18-21 (Sunday-Wednesday), 2002

 in conjunction with


Scope and Interests:

Parallel and distributed scientific and engineering computing has become a key technology which will play an important part in determining, or at least shaping, future research and development activities in many academic and industrial branches. This special workshop is to bring together computer scientists, applied mathematicians and researchers to present, discuss and exchange idea, results, work in progress and experience of research  in the area of parallel and distributed computing for problems in science and engineering applications.

Among the main topics (but not limited to) are:

Submission Information:

   Authors should send one copy of paper in either PS or PDF format at most 15 pages to the workshop organizers  ( or via electronic mail or three copies via postal mail. Contributions will be reviewed by at least three reviewers from both Program Committee and external reviewers for relevance and technical contents on basis of papers. Accepted papers with at most 8 pages will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press as proceedings of the ICPP 2002 workshops. Selected papers will be appeared on a special issue of paralllel computing journal and a Kluwer book on series of parallel and distributed computing has been scheduled.
