  • Third International Workshop on Simulation of Multiphysics Multiscale Systems
    Contact: V.V. Krzhizhanovskaya
    Schedule: W02
    Simulation of multiphysics and multiscale systems poses a grand challenge to computational science. Most of the real-life systems, vital for industrial applications and academic research, involve interactions amongst a wide range of physical phenomena. In addition to that, the time and length scales of processes studied often differ by orders of magnitude. Numerical simulation of these multiphysics and multiscale problems requires the development of sophisticated models and methods for their integration, as well as efficient numerical algorithms and advanced computational techniques.
    This workshop, being a follow-up to the highly successful events held at ICCS-2005 in Atlanta, USA and ICCS-2004 in Krakow, Poland, aims to bring together computational physicists, numerical specialists and computational scientists to push forward this challenging multidisciplinary research field.

    Schedule: W07
    The use of supercomputing technology, parallel and distributed processing, and sophisticated algorithms is of major importance for computational scientists. Yet, the scientists' goals are to solve their challenging scientific problems, not the software engineering tasks associated with it. For that reason, computational science and engineering must be able to rely on dedicated support from program development and analysis tools. Focusing on this background, the following question must be investigated:
    >>> How to support users of computational science and engineering during program development and analysis? <<<
    In order to answer this question, paper submissions concerning the usage and application of software tools, and the demonstration of program development and analysis tools for computational scientists are invited. Authors are expected to highlight the benefits of their tools for the users, and the improvements being expected when using them during software development.
    This session offers the possibility to discuss tools and tool characteristics with those people, that are using them for solving their scientific problems. Tool developers are able to show their products (or research prototypes) to potential users, while users can pose their request to tool developers.
    The following areas and related topics are of interest:
    * Problem solving environments for specific application domains
    * Application building and software construction tools
    * Domain-specific analysis tools
    * Program visualization and visual programming tools
    * On-line monitoring and computational steering tools

    Schedule: W21
    Grid environments enable collaborations involving large numbers of people and large scale resources, and promote the emergence of a new paradigm for scientific research: e-Science. Different layers of middleware, e.g., for managing Grid resources, computing tasks, data, and information, form the basic framework for realising an e-Science environment. By automating the management of experiment routines, a scientific workflow management system hides the underlying integration details of the e-Science resources and allows a scientist to focus on the high level domain specific aspects of the experiments. The support for scientific workflows is being recognised a crucial feature for introducing an e-Science environment to application scientists from different domains.
    The WSES workshop focuses on practical aspects of scientific workflow management systems: design, implementation, applications in all fields of computational science, interoperability among workflows and the e-Science infrastructure, e.g., knowledge framework, for workflow management. The workshop aims to provide a forum for researchers and developers in the field of e-Science to exchange the latest experience and research ideas on scientific workflow management and e-Science.

  • 3rd International Workshop on Automatic Differentiation Tools and Applications
    Contact: C. Bischof
    Schedule: W32
    Automatic differentiation (AD) is a methodology for computing derivatives from computer codes, ensuring accuracy and allowing for efficient computation regimes through judicious use of the chain rule of differential calculus. We solicit papers describing advances both in the algorithmic underpinnings and implementation of AD tools as well as applications of such tools to advanced computational problems. Possible Topics include: Improved algorithms for computing Jacobians, Hessians, and Gradients; AD tools for advanced programming languages such as Matlab or domain-specific languages; Application studies of the use of AD tools and methodologies in sensitivity analysis, uncertainty, optimization, parameter identification or experimental design.
    Many methods for sensitivity analysis, uncertainty analysis, optimization, parameter identification and experimental design require the computation of derivatives df/dx from computer programs expressed in high-level languages as well as in thousands of lines of Fortran. The computational complexity, both in flops and in terms of memory, of computing such derivatives, may well determine the feasibility of such a computation, and the numerical accuracy of such derivatives may greatly impact the robustness of the method that employs such derivatives. Thus, AD can be viewed as an enabling technology for many such applications.

  • Fourth International Workshop on Autonomic Distributed Data and Storage Systems Management Workshop (ADSM 2006)
    Contact: J.H. Abawajy
    Schedule: W40
    Applications such as eScience and eBusiness involve geographically distributed and heterogeneous resources such as computational resources, scientific instruments, and databases. The data in these applications is usually massive and distributed across numerous institutions for various reasons including, the inherent distribution of data sources; large-scale storage and computational requirements; to ensure high-availability and fault-tolerance of data; and caching to provide faster access. The users in such complex environments should be able to carry out analysis of the data generated by the experiments by transparently accessing distributed datasets and computational resources. Building, managing, and operating such distributed data and storage systems in autonomic manner are not only challenging, but also presents a large business opportunity for industries.
    This workshop will bring together leaders from academia, research, and industry who are building autonomic management of distributed data and storage systems.
