Gregynog House, Newtown, Powys, SY16 3PW, WALES
7 - 9 April 1997

Scope of Colloquium:
Authors are invited to present papers on recent advances and the usage
of High Performance Computing (HPC) in a variety of fields in Wales, the
Midlands and West of England, although contributors from further afield
will be welcome. A wide variety of topics are envisaged from both
Academia and Industry which may include for example: distributed
computing, parallel computing, Geotechnics, structural engineering,
finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics, computational
electrodynamics, galaxy formation, aerodynamics, solid state physics,
etc. The purpose of the meeting is to highlight and promote the usage of
High Performance Computing and networking in Industry and Higher
education institutes. Speakers from vendors would be encouraged to give
talks on HPC applications as opposed to specific hardware platforms,
Talks will range for 15 to 30 minutes with longer for key note speakers.

The colloquium is intended to be informal and will be held at the
magnificent country house of Gregynog, a residential educational centre
of the University of Wales. The house which is steeped in history is
situated in a wooded parkland estate of some 750 acres. With this
backdrop of setting it is hoped that this meeting with its wide scope of
interests in High Performance Computing will be of a great interest and
pleasure for all participants.

This colloquium is being organised as a collaboration between:
Cardiff school of Engineering, UWC (Prof. H. R. Thomas, Dr. D. Kennedy,
Dept. of Physics and Astronomy, UWC (Dr. A. H. Nelson, Dr. R. N. Philp,
Dept. of Computer Science, UWC (Prof. D. Walker, Cardiff)
Dept. of Computing Services, UWC (Dr. J. Martin, Cardiff)
Depts. of Civil and Mechanical Engineering, UWS (Dr. Ian Masters,

The colloquium is sponsored in part by the University of Wales.
Accommodation will be full board at Gregynog House at a total cost of 50
pounds per person for University of Wales members and 65 pounds per
person for non-University of Wales members per person payable A.S.A.P.
Cheques should be made payable to: University of Wales at Cardiff.
