CIRCUS AND WORKSHOPS
 
Anyone who wants to give a talk and will not be in the regular
session may do so at one of the Circus sessions.  Each session will
begin by asking who wishes to speak and setting the Circus schedule
accordingly.  To provide a more informal atmosphere for discussion,
there will also be time set aside for Workshops on specific topics
of interest.  The schedule for the Circus and Workshops will be
determined each day according to demand.
 
STUDENT PAPER COMPETITION
 
Travel and lodging assistance will be awarded to student authors
judged to have the best research papers.  Papers containing
original research due mainly to the student must be received before
December 15, 1992.  They must be singly authored and may be no more
than 10 pages in length.  Sending only an abstract is unacceptable. 
 
A panel of judges selected from the program committee will
determine the best papers.  The authors of the three best papers
will be given a travel stipend, free lodging and registration, and
they will be expected to present their papers in a special session
at the conference.  A number of other students who participate in
the competition will be awarded free lodging and registration
depending on the availability of funds.
 
FORMAT
 
There will be morning and late afternoon lectures of approximately
20 minutes each.  Evenings will be reserved for the Circus and
Workshops.  Afternoons will be open for more informal workshops and
discussions.

Subject: Workshop on Tuesday, April 6

Let me propose a wording for a blurb on the Tuesday 'multigrid for parallel
supercomputers' workshop, per your request.

        By now a good assortment of high-performance multigrid solvers 
        have been demonstrated on most of the parallel and vector-parallel
        supercomputers.  Those who are interested in comparing notes on
        their experiences in doing this, and in sharing data and code with
        each other (and those who are just starting out in this game) may
        want to join in on the workshop Tuesday evening on 'multigrid for
        parallel supercomputers'.

Subject: Circus on Monday, April 5 and Thursday, April 8

I would prefer 2 set evenings for the circus, namely Monday, April 5 and
Thursday, April 8.  The third evening (Tuesday) will be considered a spare.

I am going to try to organize a workshop (maybe just a circus) trying to get
peoples' views on how to design a general purpose pde solver for the masses.
This includes the ability to run on 1 to p processors, visualization, how to
specify a (nontrivial) problem, and should this be attached to something like
Mathematica or be something simple like the BLAS, etc.

Subject: Cheap air fares?

I am also trying to get United airlines to give us a break on plane fares.
This is still up in the air (sorry about that phrase).  If anyone who is
planning to attend is interested in another airline, please drop me a note.
Continental is the obvious other airline, but due to their finances may not be
a good choice.
