SEVENTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON DOMAIN DECOMPOSITION METHODS IN SCIENTIFIC AND ENGINEERING COMPUTING Keller Conference Center Pennsylvania State University University Park, Pennsylvania October 27--30, 1993 ABOUT THE CONFERENCE: Domain decomposition refers to a class numerical methods for obtaining solutions of scientific and engineering problems by combining solutions to problems posed on physical subdomains, or, more generally, by combining solutions to appropriately constructed subproblems. It has become a subject of intense interest recently because of its suitability for implementation on high-performance computer architectures. The aim of this conference, and of similar gatherings in the series, is to bring together researchers with different backgrounds working in this active area to discuss recent and prospective advances and to promote interaction among applied scientists, computer scientists, and numerical analysts. FORMAT AND THEMES: The conference will feature invited lectures, selected contributed papers and poster presentations. Themes of the conference will range from basic theoretical research to industrial applications related to domain decomposition (DD) method, including: numerical analysis of DD methods block and substructuring methods multigrid and multilevel methods fictitious domain methods DD methods for high order and spectral methods DD methods for nonlinear and time dependent problems DD methods in computational fluid dynamics and structural mechanics graph decomposition general iterative and preconditioning methods parallel implementations software developments CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS: The conference proceedings will be published by the American Mathematical Society in the series Contemporary Mathematics. Refereed papers from both invited and contributed talks may appear in the proceedings. CONTRIBUTED PAPERS: Potential contributors should submit an abstract of no more than one page by May 15, 1993 to the conference secretary at the address below. The submission of the abstract through e-mail is preferred. Plain TeX, AMSTeX and LaTeX are all welcome and sample tex macros are available via anonymous ftp to ftp.math.psu.edu (22.214.171.124) in the directory pub/ddm7. Plain text (ASCII) files are also acceptable. Submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee of the conference and authors will be notified by July 15, 1993.

A final performance report
The development of high performance parallel computers has made domain decomposition and related methods one of the most important techniques in modern scientific and engineering computation, and the aim of the conference was to bring together the leading researchers, both established and younger scientists, in this increasingly active and highly interdisciplinary field to survey and review the current state of research and to promote interaction between scientists with different backgrounds. The conference featured 27 invited speakers, 62 contributed talks and 15 poster presentations, with more than 150 participants (including mathematicians, engineers, physical scientists, and computer scientists) from 18 different countries. More than 20 graduate students and young researchers were able to attend the conference thanks to the support from NSF. This conference was one of the best attended ones of the field in recent years and was very carefully organized (for example, there was not even one single cancellation for the numerous scheduled presentations). A conference proceedings has been published by American Mathematical Society and it represents some of the most recent and most significant developments in the field.
