Minisymposium - MS5
Monday, June 19, 2006, 14.00-15.40 - Idun
The purpose of this minisymposium is twofold. Firstly, it focuses on a set of cutting edge software tools and frameworks currently used to tackle scientific computing applications. The availability of advanced tools like the ones to be showcased has enabled more complex physical phenomena to be addressed and as a result contributed to the growth of the computational sciences community. This community includes scientists, designers and developers of high-end technology who require computerized modeling solutions, portable software libraries, but also convenient interfaces or friendly frameworks. Secondly, the minisymposium includes presentations on a set of challenge applications, ranging from the nano to the cosmic scale, that have important requirements for computing resources but that have also fostered the development of novel techniques and tools.
