Subject: SSI (Scalable Software Infrastructure Project) Libraries Available

The Scalable Software Infrastructure Project, supported by the "Core
Research for Evolutional Science and Technology" (CREST) program of the
Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), is pleased to announce
the first major international release of our numerical libraries.

The object of the SSI project is the development of basic libraries
for large scale scientific simulations which have been developed
separately in each field, and its integration into a scalable software
infrastructure. The components include a scalable iterative solvers
library Lis, having a number of solvers, preconditioners, and matrix
storage formats that are flexibly combinable, a fast Fourier transform
library FFTSS for various superscalar architectures with SIMD
instructions, which outperforms some vendor-provided FFT libraries,
and a language- and computing environment-independent matrix
computation framework SILC. The latest version of the SSI Libraries
can be downloaded from the following URL:


Supported Features

* Lis
1) Fast quadruple precision implementation using SIMD instructions,
combined with mixed-precision iterative solvers
2) Various preconditioners, including parallel algebraic multigrid
and user-defined preconditioners
3) Support for various architectures, including IBM Blue Gene, Cray XT3,
and the Earth Simulator (beta)

1) Extremely high performance FFT kernels on various superscalar
architectures, including Intel Itanium 2, IBM POWER, and PowerPC
for Blue Gene systems
2) Parallel multidimensional transforms

1) Distributed parallel matrix computation with mathematical expressions
2) Support for BLAS and LAPACK, in addition to original libraries
including Lis and FFTSS
3) Win32 binary package for trial use

Subject: CFP, OSA Conference on Signal Synthesis and Recovery, June 2007

Signal recovery and synthesis is concerned with methods for obtaining
the best estimate of an image from the data and constraints at
hand. The topical area is important to many fields of optics, as well
as a broader constituency due to its interdisciplinary nature;
examples include digital image reconstruction from Fourier intensity
measurements, superresolution, tomographic reconstruction and blind
deconvolution. This topical meeting is concerned with theory,
algorithms and applications of signal recovery and synthesis in optics
and other disciplines.

The 8th IEEE International Workshop on Parallel and Distributed
Scientific and Engineering Computing (PDSEC-07)

March 26-30, 2007, Long Beach, California, USA

Scope and Interests:

The field of high performance computing has earned prominence through
advances in electronic and integrated technologies beginning in the
1940s. Current times are very exciting and the years to come will
witness a proliferation in the use of parallel and distributed
systems. The scientific and engineering application domains have a key
role in shaping future research and development activities in academia
and industry, especially when the solution of large and complex
problems must cope with tight timing schedules.

This special workshop is to bring together computer scientists, applied
mathematicians and researchers to present, discuss and exchange ideas,
results, work in progress and experiences in the area of parallel and
distributed computing for problems in science and engineering applications
and inter-disciplinary applications.

Submission Information:

Authors are expected to submit a paper of at most 20 pages in either PS or
PDF format with 5-10 keywords. The submission is via the online system at
PDSEC-07's web site. Program committee members and external reviewers will
provide authors with at least three reviews. Papers will be ranked for
relevance to the workshop and technical merit. Accepted papers with at most
8 pages will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press as IPDPS-07
proceedings. Selected best papers will be considered for a special issue
of International Journal of Computational Science and Engineering (IJCSE).

Subject: New MIT Graduate Program in Computation for Design and Optimization


The MIT Master of Science degree program in Computation for Design and
Optimization (CDO) was recently established in response to the emerging
need to prepare tomorrow's engineers in advanced computational methods
and applications. This interdisciplinary, interdepartmental program
provides a strong foundation in computational approaches to the design
and operation of complex engineered and scientific systems.

The MIT CDO program offers a unique, unified treatment of computational
aspects of complex engineered systems. Through hands-on projects and a
master’s thesis, students develop and apply advanced computational
methods to a diverse range of applications, from aerospace to
nanotechnology, from Internet protocols to telecommunications system
design. Career opportunities for CDO graduates include companies and
research centers where systems modeling, numerical simulation, design
and optimization play a critical role.

The MIT CDO program is aimed at two audiences: (1) students seeking a
terminal professional master's degree before entering the technology
workforce, and (2) current or future doctoral students who will use the
content of the CDO curriculum in their research.

Graduate student assistantships available for
Ph.D. and M.S. degree programs in Computational Science

The School of Computational Science (SCS) at Florida State University
will institute an innovative new Ph.D. program in Computational
Science in Fall 2007. The School already has an active M.S. program
in Computational Science.

Over the last few decades, computations have joined theory and
experimentation to form the three pillars of scientific discovery and
technological design. Computational Science can be viewed as residing
at the intersection of mathematics, computer science, statistics,
engineering and the natural sciences. Examples of problems in
Computational Science that are common to these disciplines include
algorithm development and analysis, multiscale techniques, scientific
visualization, data mining, etc. Due to the interdisciplinary nature
of Computational Science, it is essential that a computational
scientist be trained in an interdisciplinary setting. The SCS is
uniquely positioned to offer such training because it has a truly
multidisciplinary faculty consisting of biochemists, biologists,
computer scientists, engineers, geophysicists, mathematicians, and
physicists, with an even broader spectrum of interests to be
represented in the future.

Students enrolled in the Ph.D. program in Computational Science can
choose several areas of specialization. In addition to the major
track, which trains students interested in computational algorithms
which can be applied to a wide range of disciplines, we offer tracks
in atmospheric science, biochemistry, biological science, geological
science, materials science and physics. Soon, we hope to add a track
in Validation and Verification. Students following these tracks gain
expertise in computational issues specifically related to the chosen

The SCS maintains a large and diverse computing infrastructure in
support of research and education. Computing resources at the SCS
include supercomputers, a number of clusters and computational
servers, a laboratory for scientific visualization, a bioinformatics
server and more. The SCS Visualization Laboratory provides high-
powered visualization resources to the FSU community for research,
data analysis of large data collections, and education.

Florida State University is a national graduate research university
which has built a reputation as a strong center for research in the
sciences. It is located in Tallahassee, FL which is situated in the
Florida panhandle and is approximately two hours from some of the
most beautiful, uncrowded beaches in the United States.

Applications are being accepted now for Fall 2007. The SCS has a
number of assistantships available for qualified individuals.
Minorities are especially encouraged to apply. Applicants should
hold a baccalaureate degree in computer science, mathematics,
statistics, engineering, or a natural science. The interested
applicant should submit an on-line application to the SCS
an application to the Florida State University
plus supporting materials which include GRE general test scores,
official transcripts, and three letters of recommendation.
