Final Announcement and Registration

Domain decomposition is an active and interdisciplinary research area that has drawn the attention of researchers working in many different fields. The effort during the late seventies and early eighties was concerned primarily with substructuring and block methods for elliptic problems. Research work has been extended and applied in many branches of computational mathematics in science and engineering. In particular, non-linear and multiphysics problems related to industry and strategies suitable for parallel and distributed high performance computing are of interest to the participants of this series of international conferences.

This eleventh meeting will be the first in this series of conferences to take place in the United Kingdom. Its special focus will be on numerical analysis, computational issues, industrial applications and software development for domain decomposition methods.

The conference will take the format of plenary talks, minisymposia, parallel sessions, selected graduate paper presentations and vendors exhibition. All aspects of DD-based methods are of interest.
