The SIAM Workshop on Combinatorial Scientific Computing (CSC09) October 29-31, 2009

Monterey Bay, Seaside, CA

Combinatorial algorithms play a crucial enabling role in computational science and engineering (CS&E), and as problems and data sets increase in size and complexity, this role continues to grow. To provide a forum for researchers interested in the interaction of combinatorial mathematics and algorithms with CS&E and applied linear algebra, the SIAM Workshop on Combinatorial Scientific Computing (CSC09) will be organized in Monterey, CA, on October 29-31, 2009. The CSC09 workshop will follow and in part overlap with the 2009 SIAM Conference on Applied Linear Algebra.

CSC09 follows three earlier CSC workshops held in 2004, 2005, and 2007. Each of these workshops was attended by close to a hundred participants, and featured about twenty-five plenary and selected talks on the themes of parallel computing, high-performance algorithms, sparse matrix computations, combinatorial problems in optimization, automatic differentiation, informatics, computational biology, and combinatorial matrix theory. The CSC09 Workshop aims to bring together researchers interested in these themes as well as other aspects of combinatorial mathematics and algorithms in scientific computing, broadly interpreted.

Important dates: 2-page abstracts are due on May 22, 2009. Acceptance notifications will be sent on or before June 30.
