This workshop addressed challenging research issues regarding
software for numerical computations. Numerical software is a key
ingredient of Computational Science and Engineering, together with
mathematical modelling and numerical algorithms.
Software for numerical computations faces multiple challenges.
The software should be easy to use. Ideally, adaptation to new
applications should be flexible, and extension to incorporate new
numerical techniques straightforward. At the same time the software
should execute extremely efficiently on various high-performance
computing platforms. Accuracy and robustness are other key
features. The overall challenge is to find ways to construct
numerical software so that all these different goals are met
The workshop provided a forum for researchers to present
recent advances in this area.
The workshop was held in conjunction with the annual meeting of
