Parallel CFD Test Case
Although there are many benchmark programs that intend to test the performance of parallel systems - e.g. latency or bandwidth - there are little real world applications or kernels that give a closer understanding of the performance of a systems when it comes to real work. Parallel CFD'98 Workshop, Project Description, Written Documentation, Source Code, CFD Test Case Description, and call for participation can be found here.

Conference Objectives:
This conference is a widely acknowledged annual event that provides a unique forum dedicated to the discussion of recent developments and applications of Parallel Computing in Computational Fluid Dynamics and related disciplines.

Application Areas:
These will include, but will not be limited to: reacting flows, rarefied gas flows, multiphase flows, turbulent flows, LES, DNS, hypersonic re-entry problems, multiphysics problems, aerodynamic flows, climate & ocean modeling, multidisciplinary applications, parallel computing in aeronautics, astronautics, mechanical engineering, vehicle design, and water resources & environmental engineering.

Complementary Application Areas:
CFD simulations on parallel computers require the support of many complimentary disciplines. The Organizing Committee would therefore welcome contributions on recent advances in any of the following, or related applications areas: parallel and sequential grid partition techniques, parallel grid generation, multiblock applications, dynamic load balancing, parallel visualization of fluid flows, parallel implicit schemes, parallel multigrid techniques, parallel unstructured solvers, ...

Conference Venue:
The conference will be held in the international conference rooms of National Center for High-Performance Computing (address: No.7, 6th R&D Road, Science-Based Industrial Park, Hsinchu City). National Center for High-Performance Computing (NCHC) is located in the Hsinchu Science-Based Industrial Park (HSIP). The HSIP is situated between municipal Hsinchu and Hsinchu County, fifteen minutes by car or bus from the heart of the city. The Sun Yat-sen Freeway provides the principal means of access by highway. Travel time to Taipei, which is the principal city of northern Taiwan, is about an hour and a half, to the Chiang Kai-shek International Airport about forty minutes, and to the major harbors of Taichung (south of the Park) and Keelung (to the north) approximately two hours in each case.

The Hsinchu Science-Based Industrial Park was created to provide ideal fully integrated environment for investment in high-tech industries and employment and training of technically skilled personnel. Dedicated to the development of high-tech industries, the Park has also played an important role in the consolidation of subsidiary and support of enterprises.

The number of companies in the HSIP grew to 203 in 1996. HSIP companies are classified into six categories: integrated circuits; computers and peripherals; telecommunications; optoelectronics; precision machinery and materials; and biotechnology. HSIP firms' combined sales grew by an average 2% to reach US$11,564 million in 1996. Aggregate investment increased by 72% from 1995 to reach US$9,600 million by the end of 1996. The number of people working in the HSIP was 54,806 by the end of 1996. The proportion of employees with at least a junior or technical college education was 59%. HSIP workers' average age was 30 years.

In the HSIP's immediate vicinity are several academic and research institutions --
National Chiao Tung University,
National Tsing Hua University,
and the Industrial Technology Research Institute --
that can provide park firms with plentiful support in the areas of product R&D and personnel training.

A WWW page has been set up to allow for easy electronic registration. The page also contains details and links to find out about what's on in Hsinchu, accommodation available and about places to visit. The WWW address is:

Welcome to Taiwan:
Taiwan is situated in the Pacific Ocean about 160 kilometers (100 miles) from the southeastern coast of the Chinese mainland. Located about midway between Korea and Japan to the north and Hong Kong and the Philippines to the south. Taiwan is a natural gateway for travelers to and within Asia.

Taiwan's climate is subtropical, with an average annual temperature of 22 degrees Centigrade (72 degrees Fahrenheit) in the north and 24 degrees Centigrade (75 degrees Fahrenheit) in the south. The monsoon season, known in Chinese as "plum rains", is May and June. It typically heralds the start of summer, which lasts from May through September. The average temperature and relative humidity in May are about 25 degrees Centigrade (77 degrees Fahrenheit) and 84 percent, respectively. Visitors should wear lightweight clothing during conference period.

The national language of Taiwan is Mandarin Chinese, though other dialects, such as Taiwanese, are spoken as well. Many people can speak some English, which is the most widely studied foreign language.

The New Taiwan Dollar (NT$) is Taiwan's official currency. The exchange rate in recent months is approximately NT$28 for US$1.

Visa is required for foreign-passport holders. However, if your passport and the length of your stay satisfy the following terms, no visa is required:
  • you are holding a passport from Japan, USA, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Austria, Holland, Belgium, Luxembourg, Australia, New Zealand, Spain, Sweden, or Portugal; and
  • your passport is valid for more than 6 months; and
