ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics is proud to present the Eleventh Conference on Parallel Processing for Scientific Computing. This series of conferences has played a key role in promoting parallel scientific computing and parallel numerical algorithms. The conference is distinguished by its emphasis on the mathematical and technical aspects of scientific computing on parallel machines. The conference provides a forum for communication among the scientific computing, information technology, and computational science and engineering communities.

AWARDS (12/15/04)

Poster Competition

(Sponsored by NSF Advanced Computing Research)

This competition is open to all poster contributors. Participation is through submission of a 75 word abstract by September 21, 2003. A judging panel will review posters at the poster session during the conference. A winner will be selected in each of the three categories: algorithms, applications, and software. The winners will receive a monetary award of $200 and a certificate. Awards will be distributed on-site during the conference.

Additional submissions for poster presentations are being accepted through January 15, 2004. Interested parties should submit the following information to Padma Raghava, (pxr3@psu.edu).

Student Paper Prize Competition

Due to hurricane Isabel, the deadline is extended to 09/22/03!

(Sponsored by NSF Advanced Computing Research)

This competition will consider contributions whose primary author is a student (non-student co-authors are allowed). The paper can be part of a minisymposium or a contributed session.

We will select the top eight contributions based on an extended abstract and award them travel support grants of $750 each (total $6,000). To the top three student presentations (judged during the conference) we will provide monetary awards of $500 each (total $1,500) and a certificate. Awards will be distributed on-site during the conference.

To be considered for this prize, follow the directions on this application (text version can be found here.) The deadline for all submissions is September 21, 2003.

Travel support for Post-doctoral Junior Researchers

(Sponsored by NSF Advanced Computing Research)

We can grant 12 awards, each of $750 (total $9,000) to offset expenses for participating in the conference to post-doctoral junior researchers. The selection will be based on an application and the acceptance of their contributed paper/poster. Awards will be distributed on-site during the conference.

To be considered for travel support, follow the directions on this application (Text version can be found here.)

DEADLINE DATES

Minisymposium proposals: August 28, 2003
Minisymposium abstracts (non-student award submission): September 21, 2003.
Contributed abstracts in lecture or poster format: September 21, 2003.
Abstracts submitted for consideration for a student award: September 21, 2003.
Travel support applications: September 21, 2003.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

Minisymposia

A minisymposium consists of four 25-minute presentations, with an additional five minutes for discussion after each presentation. Prospective minisymposium organizers are asked to submit a proposal consisting of a title, a description (not to exceed 100 words), and a list of speakers and titles of their presentations using the Conference Management System available at http://www.siam.org/meetings/pp04/part.htm

It is recommended that the minisymposium organizer make the first presentation. Each minisymposium will be refereed by the Organizing Committee. The number of minisymposia may be limited to retain an acceptable level of parallelism in the conference sessions.

For further minisymposium organizer and participant information, please visit http://www.siam.org/meetings/resources/miniguid.htm

Deadline for submission of minisymposium proposals is August 28, 2003.

Contributed Presentations in Lecture or Poster Format

Contributed presentations in lecture or poster format are invited in all areas consistent with the conference themes. A lecture format involves a 15-minute oral presentation with an additional 5 minutes for discussion. A poster format involves the use of visual aids such as 8-1/2" x 11" sheets for mounting on a 4' x 6' poster board. A poster session is two hours long. Each contributor, either for a lecture or poster, must submit a title and brief abstract not to exceed 75 words.

Please submit contributed presentations in lecture or poster format using the Conference Management System available at http://www.siam.org/meetings/pp04/part.htm

Deadline for submission of contributed abstracts is September 21, 2003.

Electronic Submission

Please use SIAM's Conference Management System to submit minisymposium proposals, minisymposium abstracts and contributed abstracts in lecture or poster format. http://www.siam.org/meetings/pp04/part.htm
