Scientific computing is often termed as the ‘third way to do science’, alongside theory and experiments. The focus of the workshop is to investigate the current challenges of solving large scale problems on high performance computers. To achieve optimal performance it is critical to incorporate techniques that are at the forefront of both the mathematical and computer sciences. Consequently, the workshop has a strong multidisciplinary focus covering the five important areas of:
Each day of the conference will address one of these topics. A review lecture will be given in the morning by an eminent researcher in that area. Participants are invited to give more specialised talks in the afternoon, followed by a discussion session. The major aim of the workshop is to foster cooperation and communication between members of each of these five different communities, as well as to strongly encourage student participation.
The workshop is part of the Special Year on Computational Mathematics to be celebrated in 2019 by the Australian National University’s Mathematical Sciences Institute.
