2nd CFP: 6th International Conference on Automatic Differentiation - AD2012

          AD2012 - Second Call for Papers

The 6th International Conference on Automatic Differentiation


will take place July 23-27, 2012 in Fort Collins, CO (USA).

AD2012 is sponsored by SIAM.  It represents a follow up on the
previous conferences held in Breckenridge (USA), Santa Fe (USA),
Nice (France), Chicago (USA); the last international conference
in the series was held in Bonn (Germany) in 2008.

Conference topics include:
     * algorithmic foundations of automatic differentiation (AD)
     * applications in science, engineering, and finance;
       especially ODE, DAE, inverse problems, and optimization
     * AD and numerical paradigms
     * higher-order derivatives
     * combinatorial problems in AD
     * AD tool design and implementation
     * exploitation of parallelism

Contributed papers (limit 10 pages) must be submitted
by December 21, 2011.

Proceedings of all accepted papers will be published in the
Springer LNCSE series.

Call for papers PCO'12

Dear Colleagues,

A workshop of IPDPS, Parallel Computing and Optimization, welcomes papers on CSC since its introduction
last year. Paper submissions are due December 23, 2011.  Please consider submitting your papers.

Call for papers in pdf form:

Workshop's home page:

Best regards,


The workshop on new trends in Parallel Computing and Optimization aims at providing a forum for scientific
researchers and engineers on recent advances in the field of parallel or distributed computing for
difficult combinatorial optimization problems, like 0-1 multidimensional knapsack problems and
cutting stock problems, large scale linear programming problems, nonlinear optimization problems and
global optimization problems. Emphasis will be placed on new techniques for the solution of these
difficult problems like cooperative methods for integer programming problems and polynomial
optimization methods. Aspects related to Combinatorial Scientific Computing (CSC) will also be
treated. Finally, the use of new approaches in parallel computing like GPU or hybrid computing, peer to
peer comp
 uting and cloud computing will be considered. Application to planning, logistics, manufacturing,
finance, telecommunications and computational biology will be considered.

PhD student position in algorithm engineering at KIT Karlsruhe

The research group Theoretical Computer Science / Parallel Computing at
the Department of Informatics of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT)
is inviting applications for the position of a

	Research Assistant (m/f) (pay grade 13 TV-L)
starting as soon as possible. This full-time position is initially
limited to three years. The pursuit of a Ph.D. degree as part of this
position is explicitly supported.

Working Area:

In the focus of this position are research projects in parallel
algorithm engineering. The research group, which has been established
only recently, is primarily concerned with the  development of practical
sequential and parallel algorithms for problems from graph theory and
combinatorial scientific computing. Examples are the analysis of large
(social) networks and the acceleration of scientific simulations.

Further responsibilities as part of the position include teaching
tutorials and the supervision of bachelor and master students. That is
why at least basic knowledge of German is desirable.


* Very good university degree (Master or equivalent) in computer
    science or a related field, in particular (applied) mathematics
