Subject: Seeking Reviewers for Computing Reviews

The following announces a search for new reviewers for Computing Reviews:

CR publishes reviews of articles and books across all areas of computer science.
The monthly print publication was established in 1960 by the Association for
Computing Machinery (ACM). In 2001, the web version of CR
(<>) was launched in partnership with,
a publisher of reviews focusing on academic and professional literature.
In the online edition, new reviews are published each day, providing our
readers with an overview of the field that is continuously updated.

If you join us as a reviewer, you'll first complete an application, and,
upon being accepted, you'll set up your own Alert Profile that targets
material published in your areas of interest. You'll have the option of
using our database to find and select articles and books for review.
Our editorial staff will also invite you to review particular items.

Like the editors who make up the board on which I serve, CR's reviewers are
classified according to their areas of interest. The available material for
review is matched to reviewers based on the subjects they indicated on their
application. It is the expertise and insight of our reviewers that makes CR
noteworthy and timely. Exceptional reviews are highlighted on a weekly basis.

Please take a look at CR at <>. To apply, click on the
red Reviewer's Area tab at the bottom left of any page, or go to

The handbook is divided into four parts. It begins with an overview over the
field of Computational Statistics. The second part presents several topics
in the supporting field of statistical computing. Emphasis is placed on the
need of fast and accurate numerical algorithms and it discusses some of the
basic methodologies for transformation, data base handling and graphics
treatment. The third part focuses on statistical methodology. Special
attention is given to smoothing, iterative procedures, simulation and
visualization of multivariate data. The inclusion of a set of selected

Subject: Fortran Flowchart Generator

FORTRAN flowchart generator now supports f90 specifications.

OmegaChart ver. 2.0 is a FORTRAN Flowchart generator.

This package converts a FORTRAN source code (f77 & f90, fixed or free form)
to their Flowchart equivalence. The generated flowchart is then transmitted
as an Excel file.

OmegaChart 2.0 is useful for untangle behind-the-scenes programming logic in a
messy spaghetti code and therefore generate visual documentation of the
execution route. While other analysis tools only provides you "assembly level"
info such as calling trees or variables attributes, OmegaChart provide
detailed "module level" logic such as loops, if-elseif-endif constructs and
select-case constructs.

With OmegaChart, you can effortlessly minimize the use of GOTO's and therefore
"modernize" your code.

Whether you are a programmer, a program analyst or a software maintain
personnel, OmegaChart is a "MUST HAVE" tool to ease your life. It can relief
you hundreds or even thousands hours of headache.

Version 2.0 supports FORTRAN-90 language standard.

Interested user may download a demo copy of this package via

p.s. Many Bugs from previous release has be removed.

Subject: Conference in The Netherlands on Multigrid Methods

First call for papers:

We are pleased to announce the 8th European Multigrid Conference on
Multigrid, Multilevel and Multiscale Methods. The conference will take place
on September 27 - 30, 2005, at De Pier in Scheveningen, The Netherlands
and is organized in the framework of the European Community on
Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (Eccomas).

This congress is devoted to dissemination of recent advances and ideas
concerning multigrid, multilevel and multiscale methods. Multigrid methods
are generally accepted as being the fastest numerical methods for the
solution of elliptic partial differential equations. Furthermore, they are
regarded as among the fastest methods for many other problems like other
types of partial differential equations, integral equations etc.
If the multigrid idea is generalized to other structures than grids, one
obtains multilevel, multiscale or multi-resolution methods, which can
successfully be used also for very different types of problems, e.g.
problems characterized by matrix structures, particle structures etc.
A broad range of problems in the sciences and engineering require multiscale
modeling and simulation techniques, because of the range of scales involved
and the prohibitively large number of variables implied by a monoscale
approach. Multigrid, multilevel and multiscale methods are interrelated in
various ways.
Therefore, the congress aims to bring researchers in these fields together.
Previous meetings in the EMG series were held in Cologne (1981,1985), Bonn
(1991), Amsterdam (1993), Stuttgart (1996), Ghent (1999) and Hohenwart
* Multigrid methods, Multilevel and related solvers,
* Algebraic Multigrid,
* Theory and applications of methods,
* New fields of application,
* Multiscale solution methods and modeling.

Invited speakers:
L. Grasedyck (MPI Leipzig, Germany)
R Hiptmair (ETH Zuerich, Switzerland)
R. Kornhuber (FU. Berlin, Germany)

Subject: Workshop in Toulouse on Combinatorial Scientific Computing

Second International Workshop on Combinatorial Scientific Computing (CSC05)
June 21--23, 2005
Toulouse, France

The Second International Workshop on Combinatorial Scientific Computing
(CSC05) will be organized at CERFACS, Toulouse, June 21--23, 2005.
The workshop, organized in cooperation with SIAM, CERFACS,
ENSEEIHT-IRIT, and INRIA, will provide a forum for
researchers interested in the interaction of
combinatorial mathematics and algorithms with scientific computing
to discuss current developments in research.

CSC05 follows the pioneering
SIAM Workshop on Combinatorial Scientific Computing (CSC04)
held at San Francisco in Feb 2004.
The CSC04 Workshop, attended by close to a hundred participants,
featured three plenary talks and 21 selected talks
on the themes of sparse matrix computations, high-performance algorithms,
combinatorial problems in optimization and automatic differentiation,
mesh generation, computational biology, and combinatorial matrix theory.
The CSC05 Workshop aims to bring together researchers interested in
these themes as well as other aspects of combinatorial mathematics and
algorithms in scientific computing, broadly interpreted.
Researchers in emerging application areas as well as theoretical areas
that intersect with combinatorial scientific computing, e.g., information
science, networks, bioinformatics, and combinatorial optimization,
are invited to participate.

Contributed presentations in lecture format are invited in all areas
consistent with the workshop themes.
A 2-page extended abstract, in PDF format,
of a proposed talk should be submitted by February 21, 2005.
The submission procedure is described
on the web page for the conference (listed above).
Authors will be notified of acceptance of their talks by mid March.

Toulouse, the capital of the Midi-Pyrenees region of France,
is a European center for science and technology,
and is close to the Pyrenees mountains, the Mediterranean Sea,
Carcassone, and many tourist attractions.
The Workshop will be held at the Conference Center of the
Meteo France campus, where CERFACS is located.
A limited number of rooms (single and double) will be available
at the Meteo.

Further details on workshop registration, hotels and housing
options, etc., will be posted as they become available at
the conference web page.

Subject: Symposium in Morocco on Finite Volumes

Fourth International Symposium on
Finite Volumes for Complex Applications
- Problems and Perspectives -
July 4-8, 2005 / Marrakech, Morocco

Aim of the symposium:
The organisers intend to give the opportunity of a large and critical
discussion about the various aspects of Finite Volume methods:
Mathematical results, numerical techniques, but also validations via
industrial applications and comparisons with experimental test results.
By critical we mean that the qualities of the methods but also their
limits should be shown, as well as new approaches. New ideas are
explicitly welcome.

The fourth International Symposium on Finite Volumes for Complex
Applications follows the first symposium held in Rouen, France in 1996,
the second one held in Duisburg, Germany, in 1999, and the third
symposium held in Porquerolles, France in 2002.

Researchers, engineers and general users in the fields of applied
mathematics, numerical analysis, fluid mechanics and other fields of the
applied sciences who are concerned with Finite Volume Techniques for any
application. Honoured scientists, industrial delegates and students are
equally welcome.
