CSC04 Schedule and Program

Dear Colleagues,

The schedule and program for the SIAM Workshop on Combinatorial Scientific
Computing (CSC04) is now available at
Early registration with lower registration fees is available until Jan 27,
2004 at, and clicking on the `Registration' button
at the left.

We have travel support available for graduate students, post-doctoral
associates, and early-career researchers. Please contact me at

New book

Dear CSC friends,

With great pleasure I announce the publication of my book
"Parallel Scientific Computation: A Structured Approach using BSP and MPI",
see the description below. The chapter on sparse matrix-vector multiplication
has a high (P)CSC content.
