Special Session of 13th EuroPVM/MPI Users' Group Meeting 2006

*** Submission Deadline extended to June 12th, 2006 ***

Current Trends in Numerical Simulation for
Parallel Engineering Environments
New Directions and Work-in-Progress

September 17th - September 20th, Bonn, Germany

Call for Papers in ASCII.


In today's world, the use of parallel programming and architectures is an essential issue for simulating practical problems in engineering and related disciplines. Remarkable progress in CPU architecture, system scalability, and interconnect technology, as well as the introduction of new paradigms like computational Grids, continues to provide new opportunities, as well as new challenges for both the system architect and the software developer. These trends are paralleled by progress in parallel algorithms, simulation techniques, and software integration from multiple disciplines.

This 5th special session is intended to provide a discussion forum for scientists from both application disciplines and computer science in order to foster closer cooperations. In contrast to traditional conferences, emphasis is put on the presentation of up-to-date results with a short turn-around time, which can also include the presentation of work-in-progress with only partial results available at the time of submission. Authors are also encouraged to present new projects and/or ideas.

Since its successful introduction in 2002, ParSim has established itself as an integral part of the EuroPVM/MPI conference series. EuroPVM/MPI, with its long tradition as one of the European prime events in parallel computation, serves as an ideal host for ParSim and will thus enable participants to present and discuss their work within the scope of both ParSim and EuroPVM/MPI.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

Papers describing practical and/or industry experience are especially encouraged.

Author instructions:

Authors are invited to submit either extended abstracts of at most 4 pages or full papers with at most 8 pages (PDF format in LNCS style as described on the conference web site). Submissions should illustrate new and innovative directions in the area of parallel simulation techniques in engineering environments. All submissions should be sent directly through the EuroPVM/MPI06 submission page. Accepted papers will be published in the EuroPVM/MPI proceedings and can be up to 8 pages long. Accepted contributions are expected to be presented by one of the authors at ParSim06, and participants must register for EuroPVM/MPI at


All submissions are due June 12th, authors will be notified by June 19th, and camera ready papers are due July 3rd.


Accepted papers will be published in the EuroPVM/MPI proceedings as part of Springer's LNCS series. Accepted contributions are expected to be presented by one of the authors at EuroPVM/MPI 2006 during the ParSim session.
