Eighth IMACS International Symposium on Iterative Methods in Scientific Computation: November 14-17, 2006

The Eighth IMACS International Symposium on Iterative Methods in Scientific Computation will be held at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas. This symposium is the first part of a two-part series of conferences to be held at A&M during this week. The second part in the series is a symposium focusing on large-scale scientific computation with applications to porous media flow, and is being dedicated to Professor Richard E. Ewing on the occasion of his 60th birthday (to be held November 17-18). A joint conference banquet will also take place as part of the conference series (see below for details).

Organizers of the IMACS Symposium are Raytcho Lazarov, Joseph Pasciak, and Guan Qin. The conference will feature invited lectures, minisymposia, selected contributed papers and a paper competition for students and new Ph.Ds. Topics targeted include, but are not limited to:

  • nonlinear systems
  • large sparse linear systems
  • large scale eigenproblem computations
  • preconditioning
  • multigrid and multilevel methods
  • domain decomposition
  • Krylov subspace methods
  • high-performance and parallel computation
  • applications such as: computational fluid dynamics, image processing, subsurface flow with applications to petroleum and environmental modeling, computational electromagnetics
