The CSC11 workshop will be located with SIAM Conference on Optimization (OP11).

With the continuing advances in high-performance computing (HPC) the role of computational science and engineering (CSE) has gained significant importance over the last decades. At the same time scientific simulation faces a number of challenges. Many of those are combinatorial in nature and unified by a common set of abstractions, data structures, and algorithms based on combinatorics, graphs, and hypergraphs. CSC11 provides a forum for researchers interested in the interaction of combinatorial mathematics and algorithms with CSE.

CSC11 follows three earlier CSC workshops held in 2004, 2005, 2007, and 2009. The First SIAM Workshop on Combinatorial Scientific Computing (CSC04) was held at San Francisco in 2004; CSC05 was held at Toulouse, France in 2005; the CSC07 was held in Costa Mesa, CA; and CSC09 was held in Seaside, CA. 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, mesh generation, computational biology, and combinatorial matrix theory. The CSC11 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. Like earlier CSC workshops, the workshop will feature several invited speakers.
