PPAM 2003

Czestochowa, Poland,
September 7-10, 2003


Program of PPAM 2003 (non final, slight modifications are still possible)
full version     short version

Poster Sessions Schedule



The format of the Fifth International Conference on Parallel Processing and Applied Mathematics (PPAM'2003) will follow the pattern set by its successful predecessors, the PPAM'94, PPAM'97 PPAM'99 and PPAM'2001 conferences, held in Czestochowa, Zakopane, Kazimierz Dolny and Naleczow, respectively.

PPAM 2003 will be dedicated to a broad variety of subject areas within parallel and distributed processing, including theory and applications. The Conference is also intended as an open forum in the field of applied mathematics. An important goal of PPAM 2003 is to foster communication and cooperation between communities studying problems in this field and communities involved in parallel, distributed and grid computing.

* Organized in co-operation with the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics SIAM


Topics of interest include (but are not limited) to:

  • Parallel/distributed and grid architectures
  • Cluster computing
  • Parallel/distributed algorithms
  • Scheduling and load balancing
  • Performance analysis and prediction
  • Parallel/distributed/grid programming
  • Software engineering for parallel/ distributed/grid computing
  • Tools and environments for parallel/distributed/grid processing
  • Numerical linear algebra
  • Methods of solving differential equations
  • Evolutionary computing and neural networks
  • Mathematical and computer methods in mechanics, material processing, biology and medicine, physics, chemistry, business, environmental modeling, etc.
  • Applications of parallel/distributed/grid computing
