Subject: Workshop at University of Connecticut on Operator Theory

The next International Workshop on Operator Theory and Applications
(IWOTA) is being organized at the University of Connecticut, Storrs, USA,
where it will be held from Sunday, 24 July to Wednesday, 27 July, 2005.

The purpose of IWOTA 2005 is to bring together mathematicians and

tradition started at the last IWOTA meetings, the meeting will be focused
on a few special themes, without losing sight of the general IWOTA mission.
Our special interest areas are

* operator theory and function theory.
* system theory and control theory,
* structured matrices and efficient computations

Apart from these, we welcome proposals on special sessions, especially
in traditional IWOTA areas.

This IWOTA meeting will be the sixteenth in a series of highly
successful IWOTA meetings. The previous IWOTA meetings were held in
Santa Monica (1981), Rehovot (1983), Amsterdam (1985), Mesa AZ (1987),
Rotterdam (1989), Sapporo (1991), Vienna (1993), Regensburg (1995),
Bloomington (1995), Groningen (1998), Bordeaux (2000), Faro (2000),
Blacksburg (2002) and Cagliari (2003), Newcastle (2004). The organizers

Subject: Workshop on Multimedia Cluster and Grid Computing

Special Session on

held as part of the
6th Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Image Processing,
Video Processing, and Multimedia (PDIVM'2005)

in conjunction with the
International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium IPDPS
Denver, Colorado, USA, April 8th, 2005

The special session constitutes one of the sessions of the PDIVM 2005
workshop, organized as part of the 2005 IPDPS Conference. There will be
no separate registration for the special session or the workshop.
Accepted papers will be published by IEEE CS Press (a CD-ROM with a
printed abstracts book).

Even though many multimedia applications are ideally suited for parallel
execution, most researchers in multimedia do not benefit from the many
commodity clusters and wide-area Grid systems available around the world
today. Primarily, this problem is due to the lack of user-friendly tools
that can effectively help non-expert parallel programmers in creating
high performance multimedia applications. Clearly, the key to effective
application development by non-experts in parallel computing lies in the
availability of high-level programming models for multimedia processing.

This special session brings together researchers and developers working
on all aspects of the design of user-friendly programming models, tools,
and frameworks for multimedia computing. Issues of interest include, but
are not limited to:

*) domain-specific programming models
*) languages for multimedia computing (object-oriented, functional, ...)
*) multimedia server-based approaches
*) domain-specific compiler directives
*) automatic parallelization
*) automatic performance optimization
*) performance modeling
*) skeletons and algorithmic patterns
*) evaluation of user-friendly tools and frameworks
*) applications in user-friendly multimedia computing
