Challenge Workshop: Reduced-Order Modeling for Simulation and Optimization: Powerful Algorithms as Key Enablers for Scientific Computing

Position Paper



Growing demand for numerical solutions in scientific computing (modeling, simulation, data analysis, optimization problems in many application fields) requires ever-higher algorithmic and computational performance.

It has been shown in many cases that the advancement of mathematical algorithms has increased the arithmetic performance clearly more than the improvements of computer hardware.

The KoMSO workshop puts particular emphasis on the advancement of efficient numerical procedures. Presentations of new out-of-the-box algorithmic solutions for scientific computing are invited.

It is the purpose of this workshop to bring together the creators and developers of new, optimal fast mathematical algorithms and the industrial users of these tools. Requirements, application fields, needs, and benefits of effort-saving fast algorithms will be presented.

This event is jointly organized by KoMSO, Konstanz University and the Robert Bosch GmbH, and co-sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
