Algebraic Multigrid Methods Workshop
June 25-27, 2000, Strobl, Austria

General Information

    The workshop was held at the Bundesinstitut für Erwachsenenbildung (BIfEB) in Strobl, Austria from Sunday, June 25 to Tuesday, June 27, 2000 by the shores of Wolfsgangsee (near to Salzburg).  Although the institute belongs to St. Wolfgang, you reach it via the village Strobl, which is not near the central part of the lake, but is at the southeast end.

    A very informal setting was formed for the workshop early when Klaus Stüben suggested in the first presentation that people talk about failures as well as successes... and people did just that during their presentations and the discussions outside of the formal talks.

    Algorithms and applications were discussed at length.  In the evenings, many discussions took place in the institute or up the mountain at the nearby Mostbauer.

Organizing Institution

SFB F013: Numerical and Symbolic Scientific Computing



     There were 14 talks and 5 no speaks in attendance, who, nonetheless, spoke at length during the questioning periods and during the breaks.  This was an informal group with lots of interactions.  The following were the speakers.
