We have arranged special rates at the three downtown hotels as
indicated below. These rates are good through Sept. 20, 1994 and
thereafter on an as-available basis. The Hilton and Holiday Inn
(approx. 10 minutes walk to campus) are not available for Saturday
night, Oct. 22nd, due to a convention beginning Sunday. The Hilton and
Radisson have complementary limousine service to the airport. Inform
the hotel at time of registration - your airline, flight number, and
arrival time - if you need this service. The university will provide
shuttle bus service to these hotels one hour before and for one hour
after conference talks. The room tax in Knoxville is 13.25%.

Hilton (615) 523-2300: $62.00 single or double

In addition, we have reserved some rooms at the CAMPUS INN, 1706
Cumberland Ave., (615) 521-5000 for $35.00 a night, single or double,
plus tax. The Campus Inn was recently purchased by Days Inn and has no
dining or lounge facilities. It may still be undergoing some renovations
at the time of the conference. There are numerous other motels (all
chains) in the greater Knoxville area much farther from campus.

Knoxville is at the intersection of I-75 and I-40 and the university is
located near the south-west corner of the downtown area. Knoxville is
served by most of the major airlines - Delta, US Air, United, American,

Subject: Nodes@Huia Summer (December) Workshop

Huia is an idyllic spot about 20km from Auckland. There are
opportunities for ocean sports, hill-tramping and Mathematics.
It will be the venue from December 10-20, 1994 for an
activity known as Knots@Huia, involving Vaughan Jones, Robion
Kirby and others. The organizers of this workshop have invited
Applied and Computational Mathematicians to join them in the
nature reserve they will be using. I have proposed that we
use the occassion for an a Nodes@Huia workshop. It will be an
opportunity for people interested in numerical ordinary differential
equations (as well as other aspects of differential equations) to
get together and discuss their work in a pleasant informal setting.
For people in the Northern Hemisphere the summer weather that
is expected in Auckland at that time may also be an attraction.
I expect that NA people from Auckland will take part in the
workshop, as will Roger Alexander, who is visiting. Please let
me know if you have any interest in coming here for this event.

Subject: Sparse Days in Saint-Girons , July 10-16, 1994

In 1995, CERFACS will host the World Linear Algebra Year.
In order to prepare for this important event, CERFACS, and particularly
the Parallel Algorithms Project led by I. S. Duff, organized
a preliminary workshop in Saint-Girons (France) from July 10th to 15th, 1994.
The idea was to gather international specialists in the field of Sparse
Linear Algebra in order to identify some of
the most important themes that will be included in the World Linear Algebra Year
and to prepare for future CERFACS workshops.
Gene. H. Golub and Iain. S. Duff, the initiators of this exciting
meeting, took care of its scientific coordination.

"Sparse Days in Saint-Girons" was the title of this meeting.
Its organization was supervised by Pierre-Henri Cros, Deputy Director
of CERFACS and native of Saint-Girons.
He was helped in this task by Daniel Laurent, Provisory Administrator of
the University of Marne La Vall\'ee.
This meeting was funded in part by Air France, the Chambre de Commerce
et d'Industrie d'Ari\`ege, Conseil G\'en\'eral de l'Ari\`ege,
Conseil R\'egional Midi-Pyr\'en\'ees, CRAY, IBM, Intitut National
Polytechnique de Toulouse, Mairie (Town Hall) de Saint-Girons,
Minist\`ere de l'Enseignement Sup\'erieur et de la Recherche,
Universit\'e de Marne la Vall\'ee.
Christel Porte (CERFACS), Dominique Rault (CERFACS), Marie Eg\'ea (UMV),
Martine Martin (Mairie St Girons), Murielle Warin (PGP)
and Jean-Paul Caze (PGP) helped organize much of the
logistics of the meeting.

Six main themes had been chosen for discussion during the meeting.
The conferences were held during mornings and evenings and
concluded by a discussion session. Afternoons were free for informal
discussions and/or recreational activities.
We list below the speakers and the titles of their talk.
The slides of the talks will be made available on anonymous ftp from ( (/pub/algo/StGirons).
The quiet and charming atmosphere of the small city of Saint-Girons
was really conducive to promoting informal interaction.
According to the feed-back received, the participants (about 70 persons)
really enjoyed the meeting. And this great success is a very encouraging
step for CERFACS on the way to the World Linear Algebra Year.

Congratulations to Mitch Smooke, and to Y. Xu, R. Zurn, P.
Lin, J. Frank and M. Long, who have won the Silver Medal of
the Combustion Institute.

The international prize goes biannually to the authors of a
paper that makes a significant contribution to combustion
research. The award is evidence of Mitch's continuing,
outstanding work in this field; some of his joint authors
are his students. Mitch has a PhD in Mathematics from
Harvard and worked at Sandia Laboratories in California
before joining Yale's Mechanical Engineering Department.
His research shows the benefits that formal training in
