The Central Laboratory on Parallel Processing, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences in cooperation with the Division of Numerical Analysis and Statistics, University of Rousse, will organize the Fourth International Conference on "Large-Scale Scientific Computations". Two special tracks are planned:

Computational Linear Algebra
Large-Scale Scientific Computations of Engineering and Environmental Problems


Special Event
The conference will be devoted to the 60th anniversary of Raytcho Lazarov.


The conference is scheduled for June 4-8, 2003, with arrival: June 3 and departure: noon June 8.


The conference will be held at the Conference Center of BULBANK in Sozopol, a picturesque town on the Black Sea coast, 36 km to the south from Burgas (the nearest international airport).


Specific topics of interest (but not limited to) are the following:

Hierarchical, adaptive, domain decomposition and local refinement methods;
Robust preconditioning algorithms;
Monte-Carlo methods and algorithms;
Numerical linear algebra;
Large-scale computations of environmental problems;
High-performance algorithms for engineering problems;
Large-scale computations of data processing;
Parallel algorithms and performance analysis.
