Dear Colleagues:

Here's the announcement for the CSC04 workshop.
We hope you will attend our inaugural meeting and help shape the
future agenda of  our community.
We are also attempting to reach out to related communities
with  interests in CSC such as  applied algorithms,
combinatorial matrix theory, and computational applications
that would benefit from combinatorial algorithms.
Please help us disseminate this announcement
by letting me know of list serves or electronic communities
that would be interested.
Please also let us know of ideas you have for making this meeting
a success.  Thanks.

SIAM Workshop on Combinatorial Scientific Computing (CSC04)
February 27-28, 2004,
Hyatt at Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco, CA
In conjunction with The SIAM Conference on Parallel Processing for
Scientific Computing (SIAM PP04)
URL: www.siam.org/meetings/pp04/cscworkshop.htm

Combinatorial algorithms play a key supporting role in many aspects
of scientific computing.  Examples include orderings for sparse
direct methods, graph colorings and partitioning for parallel
computing, geometric algorithms in mesh generation and string
algorithms in computational biology.  The enabling importance of
combinatorial algorithms in scientific computing is often overlooked,
and subcommunities of researchers with overlapping interests are
often unaware of each other.  To address this fragmentation
and to strengthen the ties between the scientific computing and
discrete algorithms communities, SIAM is sponsoring a workshop
on Combinatorial Scientific Computing (CSC04).

CSC04 will be organized following the 11th SIAM Conference on Parallel
Processing for Scientific Computing (PP04) on February 27 and 28, 2004.
The workshop aims to bring together researchers working on applications of
combinatorial mathematics and algorithms to scientific computing.

Contributed presentations in lecture format are invited in all areas
consistent with the workshop themes.

Please submit a 2-page extended abstract of a proposed talk in PDF format to
Professor Sivan Toledo,  stoledo at tau.ac.il, preferably by electronic mail,
or hard copy at the following address:
Sivan Toledo, School of Computer Science, Tel-Aviv University, Tel-Aviv 69978,

In case of any difficulties, abstracts may also be
submitted to the other members of the organizing committee,
Professor John Gilbert (gilbert at cs.ucsb.edu),
Dr. Bruce Hendrickson (bah at cs.sandia.gov),  Professor Alex Pothen
(pothen at cs.odu.edu), or Dr. Horst Simon (hdsimon at lbl.gov).


Extended Abstract submission: October 31, 2003
Authors will be notified of acceptance by e-mail on or before November 30,

Further details are  available at


John Gilbert, University of California, Santa Barbara
Bruce Hendrickson, Sandia National Laboratories
Alex Pothen, Old Dominion University
Horst Simon, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
