Parallel CFD '99
, the eleventh in an international series of meetings featuring computational fluid dynamics research on parallel computers, will be held May 23-26, 1999 in Williamsburg, Virginia, returning to the east coast of the United States for the first time since 1992.

The technical program planned for the 3.5-day conference features invited speakers, three tracks of contributed presentations, and will be preceded for the convenience of conferees by an optional half-day tutorial introducing the PETSc parallel software system, including case studies from fluid dynamics. Early experiences on teraflops-class ASCI computers and a report on the ASCI alliance program will also be featured at the meeting.

The themes of the 1999 meeting will include the traditional emphases of this conference --- parallel algorithms, CFD applications, and experiences with contemporary architectures --- throughout the broad realm of phenomena in which fluid dynamical simulations play a critical role --- from the microscopic scales of high tech manufacturing, through human scales, through planetary scales, and even to galactic scales. The following have tentatively agreed to give plenary lectures.

Antoine Desideri, INRIA, France
Paul Fischer, Argonne, USA
Marc Garbey, Univ. Lyon, France
Trond Kvamsdal, SINTEF, Norway
Dimitri Mavriplis, ICASE, USA
Kevin McManus, Univ. Greenwich, UK
John Salmon, Caltech, USA
John Shadid, Sandia, USA
James Taft, NASA Ames, USA
Shinichi Kawai, National Space Development, Japan

Special emphases of the 1999 meeting will be parallel methods in optimization, non-PDE-based formulations of CFD, validation of CFD codes, and the influence of deep memory hierarchies and high inter-processor latencies on the design of algoriths and data structures for CFD applications. Abstracts targeting these themes are especially welcome.

Contributed Abstracts should be submitted via email to, or mailed to one of the regional representatives listed below by February 5, 1999. Compressed uuencoded postscript is the preferred means of submission. Abstracts should be in English, 2 - 5 pages in length, and should contain a representative, if preliminary, result that exemplifies a parallel aspect of the research. Authors will be notified of acceptance on or about March 12, 1999. The refereed conference proceedings will be published by North Holland.

Williamsburg, Virginia
Williamsburg is the home of the second-oldest university in the United States, the College of William & Mary, and lies at the center of the Colonial Parkway, which traces the two-century history of the British Colony of Virginia, before it became one of the first thirteen states of the United States of America. Restored and interpreted Colonial Williamsburg is within a stroll of the conference hotel.

Other reference:

Langley Research Center
The NASA Langley Research Center is a 35-minute drive from Williamsburg, in Hampton. The Langley Research Center, founded in 1916, has incubated countless developments in atmospheric flight and space flight, and has executed and sponsored much research in parallel CFD. An excursion will be organized to its official Visitor Center of the Virginia Air and Space Center on the final afternoon of the conference.
