This activity group fosters collaboration and interaction among applied mathematicians, computer scientists, domain scientists and engineers in those areas of research related to the theory, development, and use of computational technologies for the solution of important problems in science and engineering. The activity group promotes computational science and engineering as an academic discipline and promotes simulation as a mode of scientific discovery on the same level as theory and experiment.

This activity group provides a forum for computational mathematicians, computer scientists, computer architects, and computational scientists to exchange ideas on mathematical algorithms and computer architecture needed for high-performance computer systems. It promotes the exchange of ideas by focusing on the interplay of analytical methods, numerical analysis, and efficient computation.
