The Central Laboratory on Parallel Processing of the Bulgarian Academy
of Sciences in cooperation with the Division of Numerical Analysis and
Statistics of the University of Rouse will organize the second workshop
on "Large-Scale Scientific Computations". The format of the
workshop is expected to be similar to the first one held in the International
House of Scientists "F. Curie'', in the "Sv. Konstantin i Elena'' resort,
near Varna, Bulgaria on June 7-11, 1997.
This workshop, in addition to papers covering various aspects of scientific
computing, will have have two special tracks:
"Computational Linear Algebra"
"Large-Scale Scientific Computations of Engineering and Environmental
The workshop is scheduled for: June 2-6, 1999, with arrival on June
1, and departure after midday on June 6.
The workshop will be held in the picturesque town of Sozopol,
on the Black Sea coast, 36 km to the south from Burgas (the nearest international
Specific topics of interest (but not limited to) are the following:
Multigrid and domain decomposition methods
Adaptive methods and local refinement algorithms
Splitting algorithms for coupled systems
Basic iterative methods and preconditioning techniques
Robust preconditioning of parameter dependent problems
Conservative schemes and mixed finite element computations
Efficient algorithms for non-conforming finite element problems
Multiscale methods: theory and computation
Eigenvalue and eigenvector computation
Stability of algorithms in numerical linear algebra
Fast algorithms for structured matrices

Accommodation in a single room with full board will be provided at
approximately 45 USD per day. An early payment of the conference fee will
guarantee hotel reservation.
Following the already established tradition, special sessions will be organized
in the framework of the scientific program of the workshop. Participants
interested in organizing such special sessions are invited to contact any
of the organizers or the secretary of the meeting.
Proceedings of only refereed and presented papers will be published in
a book form (more details will be announced later).
Deadline for submission of extended abstracts:
Deadline for submission of full papers (up to 10 pages):
The papers should be written in standard LaTeX.
An appropriate style will be provided later.
