Book of Abstracts   and  Current List of Participants


The 7th International Workshop on Parallel Matrix Algorithms and Applications (PMAA 2012) will take place at the Birkbeck University of London, UK, 28-30 June 2012. This workshop is organised in co-operation with the International Association for Mathematics and Computers in Simulations (IMACS) and endorsed by the International Linear Algebra Society (ILAS).


This International Workshop aims to be a forum for an exchange of ideas, insights and experiences in different areas of parallel computing (Multicore, Manycores and GPU) in which matrix algorithms are employed. The Workshop will bring together experts and practitioners from diverse disciplines with a common interest in matrix computation. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:


  1. Parallel methods for solving large sparse or dense linear systems of equations and eigenproblem.
  2. Parallel environments and tools for enabling matrix applications.
  3. Large scale applications from diverse fields which have an emphasis on parallel matrix computation.
  4. Novel architectural paradigms (e.g. GPU and multicore) and their use in matrix computations and applications.
  5. Automatic tuning and performance modeling.
  6. Algorithmic engineering & complexity (matrix algorithms based on parallel models of computation such as PRAM, systolic arrays, etc.)


Selected peer-review papers will be published in a special issue of Parallel Computing (Elsevier).
