Subject: Thilo Penzl

On December 17, Thilo Penzl died in a tragic avalanche accident in the
Canadian Cascade Mountains while pursuing his favourite hobby of mountain
climbing. Thilo was currently a post-doc at the Department of Mathematics
and Statistics at the University of Calgary. He was about to return to
the Technische Universitaet Chemnitz to take a position as assistant
professor ("Hochschulassistent") at the Department of Mathematics in the
research group "Numerical Linear Algebra" and the Sonderforschungsbereich
393 "Numerical Simulation on Massively Parallel Computers" on January 1, 2000.

Thilo was born in June 1968 in Plauen, Germany. He received his PhD
in mathematics in 1998 at the Technische Universitaet Chemnitz with
his thesis "Numerical Solution of Large Lyapunov Equations". He was
an active member of the Working Group on Software participating in the
development of the Subroutine Library in Control Theory (SLICOT).
His latest research was devoted to model reduction and optimal control
for large sparse control systems arising from discretized PDEs.
He will always be remembered as a good friend and colleague who was
liked and respected by everybody. We miss him a lot.

Subject: Biswa Datta Elected as IEEE Fellow

It is a pleasure and honor for me to announce that The Board of Directors
of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, elected Professor
Biswa Datta, of Northern Illinois University, as an IEEE Fellow.
At the November 14 meeting of The Board this year, following a rigorous
evaluation procedure, the IEEE Fellow Committee recommended a select
group of recipients for one of the Institute's most prestigious honors. Less
than one in one thousand members of the IEEE will receive this honor in 2000.
Biswa's election as IEEE Fellow comes with the citation:

"For contributions to the interdisciplinary
research blending linear algebra with control
and systems theory."

Congratulations Biswa!

In their December 24 issue, The Financial Times has declared
John von Neumann to be "Man of the Century". To find the article, go to

and search ("Search Site") for Neumann. (The headline of the article
was "Man of the Century", but that does not appear on the web site article.)

The Financial Times has not yet announced its choice for "Woman of the Century".

Subject: ATLAS Version 3.0 is Now Available

ATLAS version 3.0 is now available.
To obtain a copy of the ATLAS 3.0 see:

The existing BLAS have proven to be very effective in facilitating the
production of portable, efficient software for sequential, vector and
shared memory high-performance computers. However, hand-optimized BLAS
are expensive and tedious to produce for any particular architecture,
and in general will only be created when there is a large enough market,
which is not the true for all platforms. The process of generating an
optimized set of BLAS for a new architecture or a slightly different
machine version can be a time consuming process. The programmer must
understand the architecture, how the memory hierarchy can be used to
provide data in an optimal fashion, how the functional units and
registers can be manipulated to generate the correct operands at the
correct time, and how best to use the compiler optimization. ATLAS is
an approach for the automatic generation and optimization of numerical
software for processors with deep memory hierarchies and pipelined
functional units. ATLAS has been designed to automate much of this

ATLAS version 3.0BETA released December 15, 1999.
Version 3.0BETA highlights:
Full BLAS support (all levels all data types)
Some LAPACK routines explicitly supported (recursive LU and
Standard C and Fortran77 APIs for all BLAS and provided LAPACK
C routines support both row- & column-major access

Subject: 27th SPEEDUP Workshop

27th SPEEDUP Workshop
Scientific Data Management and Understanding in Computational Science

Hotel Cadro Panoramica
March 16 - 17, 2000


Integrated solutions to computational science problems often require not
only large processing power, but in general also efficient methods and
techniques to store, manage, retrieve, analyze and discover the
knowledge contained in the often huge amounts of data generated in
experiments and computer-based modeling and simulation processes.

This workshop will demonstrate established approaches with examples of
scientific and industrial relevance, but also raise the question whether
these approaches will be sufficient in the future to cope with the
quickly growing complexity of data. Will there be completely new
methods emerging? What can we learn from the experiences gained with
very large data-bases in business computing?

The 27th SPEEDUP Workshop is intended to bring together members of
academic institutions, private enterprises and government who are
interested to obtain an overview of the state-of-the-art in scientific
data processing and to learn about new methods in management of, and
knowledge discovery in, very large amounts of scientific data generated in
computational science modeling and simulation processes.


Topics will include, but will not be limited to the discussion of trends in

-- Data management and repository organization
-- Data retrieval techniques
-- Statistical data analysis
-- Scientific visualization
-- Agent technologies for intelligent post-processing
-- Data warehouses
-- Data mining
