Subject: New optimization software, HOPSPACK 2.0

Sandia National Laboratories announces the availability of HOPSPACK 2.0,
an official release of the Hybrid Optimization Parallel Search PACKage.
HOPSPACK provides an open source C++ framework for solving derivative-free
optimization problems. The framework enables parallel operation using MPI and
multithreading. Multiple algorithms can be hybridized to run simultaneously,
sharing a cache of computed objective and constraint function evaluations that
eliminates duplicate work. Functions are computed in parallel to be compatible
with both synchronous and asynchronous algorithms. HOPSPACK comes with a
Generating Set Search algorithm that handles linear and nonlinear constraints.
The software is easily extended and is designed for developers to add new
algorithms. HOPSPACK is a successor to Sandia's APPSPACK product.

HOPSPACK precompiled executables for Windows and Linux are now available at

Subject: New book, Scientific Computation

I am glad to announce that our book on Scientific Computation
is finally available from Cambridge University Press.

This book closely follows our 3rd year course in scientific
computation at ETH, a course that comes after two semesters of
classical numerical computation. Its main characteristic is that
it uses a variety of real problems (abstracted a bit, but real
problems in the end) to illustrate various aspects of optimization,
modelling and simulation. The example problems are: computing
the location of an aircraft (very similar in nature to GPS),
optimal time for equipment replacement, prediction of alpha-helices
in proteins (done with least squares, neighbour trees and linear
programming), stock market simulation and phylogenetic tree
construction. Through these examples, previously learned and new
tools are examined and explained. We have found that students are
much more motivated to learn the algorithms and mathematics when
they can relate it directly to real problems. Finally, an associated
web server can guide students over several interactive exercises
suitable for sections of the book.

the structure of particle systems under a variety of physical
constraints. These include, for example, classical ground states for
interacting particle systems, best-packing, random packings, jammed
states, granular and colloidal systems, as well as minimal discrete and
continuous energy problems for general kernels.

Subject: Symposium on Neural Networks, Shanghai, China, Jun 2010


7th International Symposium on Neural Networks (ISNN2010)
June 6-10, 2010; Shanghai, China

Websites: or
Paper submissions:

The Seventh International Symposium on Neural Networks (ISNN 2010) will be
held in Shanghai, following the successes of previous events.
ISNN 2010 aims to provide a high-level international forum for scientists,
engineers, and educators to present the state of the art of neural network
research and applications in related fields. The symposium will feature
plenary speeches given by world renowned scholars, regular sessions with broad
coverage, and special sessions focusing on popular topics.

Prospective authors are invited to contribute high-quality papers to ISNN
2010. In addition, proposals for special sessions within the technical scopes
of the symposium are solicited. Special sessions, to be organized by
internationally recognized experts, aim to bring together researchers in
special focused topics. Papers submitted for special sessions are to be
peer-reviewed with the same criteria used for the contributed papers.
Researchers interested in organizing special sessions are invited to submit
formal proposals to ISNN 2010. A special session proposal should include the
session title, a brief description of the scope and motivation, names, contact
information and brief biographical information on the organizers.

Authors are invited to submit full-length papers (10 pages maximum) by the
submission deadline through the online submission system. Potential
organizers are also invited to enlist five or more papers with cohesive topics
to form special sessions. The submission of a paper implies that the paper is
original and has not been submitted under review or copyright-protected
elsewhere and will be presented by an author if accepted. All submitted
papers will be refereed by experts in the field based on the criteria of
originality, significance, quality, and clarity. The authors of accepted
papers will have an opportunity to revise their papers and take consideration
of the referees' comments and suggestions. The ISNN 2010 proceedings will be
published by Springer in its series of Lecture Notes in Computer Science (EI)
and Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing (ISTP). Selected good papers
will be included in special issues of several journals such as Neurocomputing,
Neural Computation and Applications, Cognitive Neurodynamics, Cognitive
Computation, and Mathematics and Computers in Simulation. In addition, the
International Neural Network Society (INNS) will offer two best student paper
awards (US$250 each with one-year INNS membership).
