High Performance Computing Center North (HPC2N) and the Department of Computing Science is hosting the fourth International Workshop on Applied Parallel Computing (PARA98) in June 14-17, 1998 at Umeå University, Umeå, Sweden. The general theme for PARA98 is Large Scale Scientific and Industrial Problems focusing on:

  • High-performance computing applications in academia and industry,
  • Tools, languages and environments for high-performance computing,
  • Scientific visualization and virtual reality applications in academia and industry,
  • Future directions in high-performance computing and networking.

The PARA98 meeting is aimed to be an international forum for idea and competence exchange for specialists in parallel computing, visualization, etc and scientists from industry and academia solving large scale computational problems. Another important aim of the PARA meetings is to strengthen the ties between HPC centers, academia, and industry in the Nordic countries as well as worldwide.

The meeting starts with a one day tutorial followed by a three day workshop. There will be several invited one-hour lectures as well as around 70 contributed 20-30 minutes talks. The PARA98 Proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in their Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.
