The 2nd Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Scientific and Engineering Computing with Applications (PDSECA-01)

  Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport, San Francisco

April 23-27, 2001

 in conjunction with
The 15th International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium (IPDPS-2001)

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:

  • development of advanced parallel and distributed methods
  • parallel and distributed computing techniques and codes,
  • practical experiences using various supercomputers with software such as MPI, PVM, and High  Performance Fortran, OpenMP, etc.
  • applications to the following areas:
  •  computational fluid dynamics and mechanics
  •  material sciences
  •  space, weather, climate systems and global changes
  •  computational environment and energy systems
  •  computational ocean and earth sciences
  •  combustion system simulation
  •  computational chemistry
  •  computational physics
  •  bioinformatics and computational biology
  •  medical applications
  •  transportation systems simulations
  •  combinatorial and global optimization problems
  •  structural engineering
  •  computational electromagnetics
  •  computer graphics
  •  semiconductor technology, and electronic circuits and system design etc.
  • Submission Information:

        Authors should send one copy of paper with experimental results in either PS or PDF format at most 20 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 will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press as proceedings of the IPDPS workshops. Selected papers will be appeared on a special issue of the International Journal of INFORMATION.
