Subject: Parallel Computationaal Fluid Dynamics

Implementations and Results Using MIMD Computers
Los Angeles, May 8-9, 1989


ONR, RIACS and INTEL are pleased to participate as sponsors for a conference
designed to discuss recent developments in the use of MIMD parallel computers
in high performance computational fluid dynamics. Each of the invited
speakers has experience and specific results to report using an Intel iPSC/2
system. The issues discussed, however, will pertain to a broad class of
similar MIMD systems. Please note this correction. Deadline date for
pre-registration was incorrectly printed as March 10, 1989. The correct
deadline date is April 21, 1989.
