FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS
2nd INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON DOMAIN DECOMPOSITION METHODS
University of California, Los Angeles
January 14 - 16, 1988.
THEME
Domain Decomposition is a class of methods for solving mathematical physics
problems by decomposing the physical domain into smaller subdomains
and obtaining the solution by solving smaller problems on these subdomains.
The motivation may be : the ability to use
different mathematical models and approximation methods
in different subdomains,
use of fast direct methods in subdomains,
memory limitations of the computer
and suitability for implementation on parallel computers.
Applications can be found in many areas of scientific computing,
such as computational fluid dynamics and structural mechanics.
This is a sequel to the First International Symposium on Domain Decomposition
Methods held in Paris in January, 1987.
The aim is to bring together the leading researchers in this rapidly expanding
and highly interdisciplinary
field to survey and review the progress that have been made since the last
symposium.
There will be approximately 25 invited papers and a small
contributed papers/poster session.
In selecting invited and contributed papers,
the organizational committee will try to keep a balance between the
mathematical development, the implementation on parallel computers and
applications.

OTHER RELATED CONFERENCES
The annual AIAA meeting will be held in Reno, Nevada in the beginning of the
same week. The Third conference on Hypercube Concurrent Computers and
Applications will be held the following week (January 19-20, 1988) in nearby
Pasadena.
