The goal of the 3-day workshop is to bring together experts as well as interested researchers who are working on different aspects of scientific computation such as fast linear solvers, parallel computing, graph and network problems, based on the technique of nested dissection and graph partitioning. The workshop will feature both invited talks and contributed talks. Students are especially encouraged to participate.
This workshop will provide a venue and opportunities for interaction and collaboration among participants, development of new ideas and techniques in nested dissection and its applications, and solving important problems in science and engineering using graph partitioning.
