Topic 9: Parallel Numerical Methods and Applications

Global Chair: Paolo Bientinesi, Umeå University

Local Chair: Michael Bane, Manchester Metropolitan University

Description

As we approach the exascale era, large-scale computations and analyses have to be supported by efficient, scalable, and reliable algorithms and implementations. Ultimately, end users will face a range of algorithmic requirements regarding erformance, accuracy, and energy consumption. These requirements may potentially span a range of architectures including CPUs, GPUs, and FPGAs, typically in a heterogeneous environment.

This topic provides a forum to discuss recent developments in the design and implementation of parallel numerical algorithms. We encourage submissions that address algorithmic design, performance analysis, accuracy study, as well as integration of arallel numerical methods in real world/industrial applications.
