A conference on numerical analysis and scientific computing
for graduate students and postdocs in the Mid-Atlantic region.

This one-day meeting will start at 10am to allow same-day travel.

It will be held in Room 617
Wachman Hall, Temple University, 1805 North Broad Street, just north of Montgomery Avenue.

It is an opportunity for graduate students and postdocs to present their research, and to meet other researchers.

There will be contributed talks and a poster session.

There is no registration fee, and no support for travel. Lunch will be provided.

We ask every participant to please register in advance, even if they are not planning to give a talk.

## Keynote SpeakerLois Curfman McInnes, Argonne National Laboratory ## Scientific software ecosystems and communities: Why we need them and how each of us can help them thriveSoftware in high-performance computing (HPC) is a cornerstone of long-term collaboration and scientific progress, but software complexity is increasing due to disruptive changes in computer architectures and the challenges of next-generation science. Thus, the HPC community has the unique opportunity to fundamentally change how scientific software is designed, developed, and sustained—embracing community collaboration toward scientific software ecosystems. This presentation will introduce work in the U.S. Exascale Computing Project, where a varied suite of scientific applications builds on programming models and runtimes, math libraries, data and visualization packages, and development tools that comprise the Extreme-scale Scientific Software Stack (E4S). As an example, we will highlight recent advances in composable solvers in the PETSc library, where innovative algorithms and data structures are helping to achieve scalable performance on extreme-scale architectures. We will also discuss how crosscutting software strategies are increasing developer productivity and software sustainability, thereby mitigating technical risks by building a firmer foundation for reproducible, sustainable science. The presentation will mention complementary community efforts and opportunities for involvement. |

If you would like to participate (in any form), please register using the
online registration form.

Deadline for the submission of talks: October 6, 2023.
