The conference will take place on September 27 - 30, 2005, at De Pier in Scheveningen, The Netherlands and is organized in the framework of the European Community on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences (Eccomas). Objectives: This congress is devoted to dissemination of recent advances and ideas concerning multigrid, multilevel and multiscale methods. Multigrid methods are generally accepted as being the fastest numerical methods for the solution of elliptic partial differential equations. Furthermore, they are regarded as among the fastest methods for many other problems like other types of partial differential equations, integral equations etc. If the multigrid idea is generalized to other structures than grids, one obtains multilevel, multiscale or multi-resolution methods, which can successfully be used also for very different types of problems, e.g. problems characterized by matrix structures, particle structures etc. A broad range of problems in the sciences and engineering require multiscale modeling and simulation techniques, because of the range of scales involved and the prohibitively large number of variables implied by a monoscale approach. Multigrid, multilevel and multiscale methods are interrelated in various ways. Therefore, the congress aims to bring researchers in these fields together. Previous meetings in the EMG series were held in Cologne (1981,1985), Bonn (1991), Amsterdam (1993), Stuttgart (1996), Ghent (1999) and Hohenwart (2002). Topics: * Multigrid methods, Multilevel solvers, * Algebraic Multigrid, * Theory and applications of methods, * New fields of application, * Multiscale solution methods and modeling.

Moreover, the representation of matrices in the hierarchical matrix format is suitable for the efficient solution of matrix equations. The aim of this winterschool is to teach the necessary theoretical foundations for hierarchical matrices, but most of all the efficient implementation of the algorithms. The practical realisation on the computer will be done during the exercise courses in the afternoons. The participants will use the HLib library in order to assemble and solve BEM and FEM systems. Lecture notes are available in electronic form.

The Preconditioning 2005 Conference focuses on preconditioning techniques for solving various matrix problems, particularly those that are relevant to large-scale scientific and industrial applications. The conference has received the endorsement of the SIAM Activity Group on Linear Algebra. The 2005 meeting will take place immediately before the International Conference on Computational Science (ICCS 2005), which is being held at Emory University on May 22-25, 2005 (http://www.mathcs.emory.edu/iccs2005/), and before the XVI Householder Symposium on Numerical Algebra, to be held in Champion, PA on May 23-27, 2005 (http://www.cse.psu.edu/~zha/householder/). The conference will feature plenary presentations, contributed papers, and (tentatively) poster presentations. CONFERENCE CHAIRS: Michele Benzi, Emory University Esmond G.

Conf. Scale-Space and PDE Methods in Computer Vision 5th Int. Conf. Scale-Space and PDE Methods in Computer Vision The Fifth International Conference on Scale-Space and PDE Methods in Computer Vision Schloesschen Schoenburg Hofgeismar, Germany, April 7-9, 2005 CALL FOR PARTICIPATION Scale-space techniques and methods based on partial differential equations (PDEs) have become widely used tools in image processing and computer vision. They include a variety of methods such as linear scale-spaces, nonlinear diffusion filtering, geometric flows, adaptive scalable kernels, level set methods, variational techniques, and continuous- scale morphology. This conference deals with all aspects of these techniques, including - theoretical foundations (axiomatic foundations, well-posedness, differential-geometric aspects, relations to other multiscale paradigms, biological relevance), - discrete and numerical aspects (discrete theories, efficient numerical methods), - applications in image processing and computer vision (image restoration, shape analysis, grouping, segmentation, motion, stereo, registration) - applications in other fields (biomedical applications, industrial inspection, security). It is the fifth conference in a series of successful biannual meetings held in Utrecht, Corfu, Vancouver and Skye. It will take place in a little castle (Schloesschen Schoenburg) in a scenic place near the small town of Hofgeismar, Germany. The conference is sponsored by the German Pattern Recognition Society (DAGM). It is planned to publish the proceedings in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science Series. Selected papers will appear in a special issue of the International Journal of Computer Vision. Prospective authors are encouraged to submit manuscripts of not more than 12 pages in Springer LNCS format by October 1, 2004.
