**Subject: Babuska Prizes Awarded**

1996 BABUSKA PRIZES AWARDED

In December 1996, the Czech Association for Mechanics and the Union of

Czech Mathematicians and Physicists again awarded the I. Babuska Prize

for the best work in computer science submitted by students and young

scientists.

The Prize winner for 1996 is Dr Petr Knobloch. The work honored was his

PhD thesis Solvability and finite element discretization of a

mathematical model related to Czochralski crystal growth defended at the

Otto-von-Guericke Universitaet Magdeburg in Germany.

Further winners on the second and third places who were delivered

diplomas of honor were Dr Miroslav Rozloznik from the Institute of

Computer Science of the Academy of Sciences in Prague with his PhD

thesis Numerical stability of the GMRES method nad Dr Tomas Vampola from

the Faculty of Machine Engineering of the Czech Technical University in

Prague with his PhD thesis Efficient algorithm for the assembly of

equations of motion for a system of many bodies considering the

yielding.

The fourth position was taken by Pavel Solin from the Faculty of

Mathematics and Physics of the Charles University in Prague with his

diploma work Three-dimensional Euler equations and their numerical

solution.

The prize as well as the diplomas will be awarded every year and they

are connected with a financial support.

The prize was established in 1994 by an outstanding Czech mathematician

Ivo Babuska. He was born in Prague in 1926 and after graduating from the

Faculty of Civil Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague

he started his work in the Mathematical Institute of the Academy of

Sciences. He was appointed professor in Prague in 1968 and since fall

1968 he has been working in the United States. Since 1995 he works at

the Texas Institute for Computational and Applied Mathematics,

University of Texas, Austin, TX.

His scientific work is focused on numerical and applied mathematics and

computational mechanics, and their use in practice. His results in the

finite element method belong to the fundamentals of the method. He is

the author of several monographs and has initiated several famous

scientific meetings both in Europe and the United States. He established

the journal Applications of Mathematics (formerly Aplikace matematiky)

in 1956. Last year he was awarded the Bernard Bolzano Medal by the

Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. The world mathematical

community remembered the 70th birthdays of Prof. Ivo Babuska, and also

Prof. Miroslav Fiedler, Prof. Jaroslav Kurzweil and Prof. Vlastimil Ptak

at the Prague Mathematical Conference in Prague in July 1996.

**Subject: A 3D Tracking Problem**

Suppose we have K-landmarks (K > 2) on a rigid-body which is moving

through space. We measure the 3D coordinates of each of these

landmarks at times t = 1,2,...M. The measurements give us noisy 3D

trajectories for each of these landmarks at M-points.

Problem: Find smoothed trajectories for all landmarks if the distances

between the landmarks are unchanged when: 1) the distances are known

precisely, and 2) the distances are unknown.

Any pointers would be appreciated.

**Subject: Program for Convex Hull Sought**

I like to get information about publicly available programs (preferably in

MATLAB) for finding the convex hull of a set of points in an n-dimensional

space. (The points are symmetric with respect to origin.)

The ability of the software to analyze and modify the convex hull to include

a new point (or set) is of special interest.

and industry, but also other leading-edge applications are welcome. We expect

participation typically to come from "vertical chains", collaborations between

HPCN knowledge centres, hard and/or software vendors and end-users in industry.

We request proposals for Technology Demonstrators in the following areas:

1 Demonstrators of real working applications.

2 Demonstrators of new emerging applications.

3 Demonstrators of technology transfer.

WORKSHOP ON

SOLVING COMBINATORIAL OPTIMIZATION PROBLEMS IN PARALLEL

--- SCOOP ---

April 5, 1997 - Geneva, Switzerland

To be held in conjunction with IPPS'97

Deadline for submission: January 10, 1997

(http://www.ens-lyon.fr/LIP/SCOOP)

The solution of optimization problems in real world applications

usually involves an enormous amount of work in which the use of

parallel computers may be of great value. Through parallel computing,

not only problems may be solved faster, but also large-sized problems

may become tractable.

The SCOOP workshop is aimed to bring together experts in the field of

parallel combinatorial computing. It will address both exact and

approximate methods for scientific and practical hard optimization

problems. The workshop will be the final meeting of the Human Capital

and Mobility project SCOOP of the European Union. It will be held on

the last day of the IPPS symposium (April 1--5, 1997), in Geneva,

Switzerland.

The program will consist of a key-note lecture, and a number of short

(25 minute) contributed presentations.

The key-note lecture will be the following.

General Description:

Euro-Par is the annual European conference in Parallel Processing. Like

the 1996 conference in Lyon, the 1997 version will consist of a number

of highly focussed workshops on all aspects of parallel processing,

from theory to practice, from academy to industry. The workshops will

present the latest advances in their respective domains. In addition,

there will be a number of high-level tutorials of general interest plus

a series of invited talks. Calls for papers for 20 workshops are being

launched. All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings published

by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS Series.

Workshop Description:

Workshop #08: Parallel Discrete Algorithms

The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for advances

in the state of the art in parallel discrete algorithms. Parallel

algorithms from all discrete areas are appropriate, including discrete

optimization (for both specific problems and more generic methods such

as parallel search), pattern recognition and image processing,

discrete simulation, computational geometry, and graph theory.

Special consideration will be given to scalable, practical algorithms.

Algorithmic strategies for abstract parallel models such as

LogP, BSP, or PRAMs are encouraged, as well as algorithmic tuning for

specific architectures, and experimental analysis which provides

insight into algorithmic choice. There is a strong relation to workshop

#13, but we focus on specific algorithms rather than on models and methods.

Topics of interest include:

* discrete optimization

* graph algorithms

* computational geometry

* discrete simulation methods

* comparative experimental analysis

candidate will have a strong background in applied mathematics,

particularly analysis (ODEs, PDEs, probability and stochastic

processes), good computational skills, a working knowledge of

statistics, be particularly interested in and adept at creating and

analyzing mathematical models of physical/chemical/technological

processes and systems, and be a good communicator and team worker.

The Computational Science Laboratory is a group of highly skilled

mathematicians and scientists working with other scientists and

engineers to model problems of interest to the business of the Eastman

Kodak Company. The scope of interaction is company-wide with

opportunity for project work in virtually any application field.

Principal efforts at the moment are in fundamental understanding of

silver halide materials; light scattering in complex media; diffusion

of reacting species in complex, random systems; and others.
