Subject: Sundials 2.4.0 release

Announcing the release of Sundials version 2.4.0. The suite includes the
following five solvers:
- CVODE (v. 2.6.0), for integration of ODE initial value problems;
- CVODES (v. 2.6.0), for integration and sensitivity analysis of ODE IVP;
- IDA (v. 2.6.0), for integration of DAE initial value problems;
- IDAS (v. 1.0.0), for integration and sensitivity analysis of DAE IVP;
- KINSOL (v. 2.6.0), for nonlinear algebraic systems.

The Sundials solvers provide robust time integrators (with optional
sensitivity analysis capabilities) and nonlinear solvers that can easily be
incorporated into existing simulation codes. The solvers are independent of
the data representation and can be used both on serial and parallel computers.
They are written in ANSI C, with CVODE, IDA, and KINSOL also providing a
Fortran interface. In addition, sundialsTB provides a Matlab interface to

Subject: New book, Scientific Data Mining: A Practical Perspective

Scientific Data Mining: A Practical Perspective, by Chandrika Kamath

2009/xviii+286 pages/Softcover/ ISBN 978-0-898716-75-7/List Price $71.00 /
SIAM Member Price $49.70/Order Code OT112

Starting with a survey of analysis problems in different applications, this
book identifies the common themes across science and engineering domains and
uses them to define an end-to-end process of scientific data mining. This
multi-step process includes tasks such as processing the raw image or mesh
data to identify objects of interest; extracting relevant features
describing the objects; detecting patterns among the objects; and displaying
the patterns for validation by the scientists.

This book is intended for data mining practitioners and scientists
interested in applying data mining techniques to their data sets. It is also
appropriate for advanced undergraduate and graduate-level courses on data
analysis offered in mathematics, computer science, and statistics

Chandrika Kamath is a researcher at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory,
where she is involved in the analysis of data from scientific simulations,
observations, and experiments. Her interests include signal and image
processing, machine learning, pattern recognition, and statistics, as well
as the application of data mining techniques to the solution of practical

Subject: Novel Data Formats and Algorithms for HPC, Poland, Sep 2009

A Workshop
(the deadline is extended)
on Novel Data Formats and Algorithms
for High Performance Computing
organized by
Fred Gustavson and Jerzy Wasniewski

Abstract: Recently, several novel data formats were introduced into the
area of High Performance Computing with the intent of producing new
algorithms as well as improving their performance. Recursion, via the
divide-and-conquer paradigm, introduced variable blocking to complement
the standard fixed block algorithms. In particular, new data structures
for dense linear algebra became an active research area. This Workshop
will focus on both new data structures and/or new or existing algorithms
for in general high performance computing.

This workshop will be held at the conference
Wroclaw, Poland,
September 13-16 2009,

A limited number of contributed, 20 minute talks will be selected for
this workshop. Extended abstracts no more than two pages should be sent
