**Subject: Many-core and Reconfigurable Supercomputing Conf. (MRSC), Apr 2008**

Dear Colleagues,

The established Manchester Reconfigurable Supercomputing Conference is,

for 2008, being broadened to include many core and accelerator technologies,

reflecting the feedback from attendees, and the similarities posed from a

programmer's perspective. The event will now be known as the:

Many-core and Reconfigurable Supercomputing Conference (MRSC).

Following from a number of successful hostings of this event at the

University of Manchester, the conference organisers have this year chosen

to host the event at the Queen's University Belfast (which celebrates its

centenary in 2008), cementing the MRSC's emerging role as the European event

for FPGA and accelerated High Performance Computing (HPC).

This conference will continue to exhibit the very latest in research and

development in Reconfigurable Supercomputing and from 2008 in Many-Core and

Accelerator technologies. The call for papers and for workshop proposals is

now open.

The event will be held from 1st to 3rd April 2008

Full details are available from:

www.mrsc2008.org

SENIOR RESEARCHER POSITION AT CERFACS

A senior researcher position will be available at CERFACS to work in the

Parallel Algorithms Team led by Iain Duff. This permanent position is

available from 1st February 2008, but a later start date would be possible.

The Parallel Algorithms Team is looking for a bright, motivated person

with a good research record and the ability to supervise research

projects and students. The applicant would be expected to join existing

projects in numerical optimization and linear algebra as well as showing

initiative in pursuing new research directions. Applications in the

problems with uncertain data are preferred.

Additional benefits of the position include a competitive salary, travel

opportunities, access to state-of-the-art computational facilities (including

both SMP/MPP parallel architectures and high-performance workstations).

A particular strength of CERFACS is its access to real-life applications

through strong and well developed academic/industrial collaborations within a

very active research program in advanced scientific computing.

**Subject: Ode to a Matrix**

Many NA Digest readers may be familiar with "Ode to a Haggis," by Robert

Burns, one of Iain Duff's favorite poets. I've translated the poem from

Scots into a more accessible dialect: Sparse-Matrese. Below is an

excerpt that might whet your appetite ... for both the poem, and a haggis

(oatmeal and entrails boiled in a sheep stomach, which tastes much better

than it sounds). For the complete poem, a glossary, and audio recordings,

see:

Ode to a Matrix, by Tim Davis

Fair fa' your sparsest frontal mats,

Great chieftain o' the matrix-ranks !

Aboon them a' ye tak your fill,

Permute, factor, tril.

Weel are ye wordy of an ode

As lang 's Duff's code.

The groaning memory there ye fill,

Your cliques 's like a huge frontil,

Your pinv wad help find rank until

Iain's code ye need,

While thro' your cores diags distil

Like Iain's beard.
