Parallel-in-Time Workshop Held at JSC

At the threshold of the exascale era, there is an urgent demand for improved and new numerical algorithms. For time-dependent problems, the idea of concurrency in the time domain is attracting growing interest in many different communities. From 26 to 28 May, JSC and SPPEXA, the German Priority Programme "Software for Exascale Computing" (DFG SPP-1648), organized the 3rd Workshop on Parallel-in-Time Integration with a special focus on parallel multi-level methods in space and time. With 42 participants from academia, research and industry coming from 11 different countries, a broad spectrum of expertise was brought together to create a great ambiance for the successful exchange of ideas, new approaches and also pressing questions. The topics ranged from applied mathematics to climate and earth sciences as well as engineering sciences. With sufficient time for discussions and individual meetings, new collaborations were initiated and long-lasting contacts renewed. This workshop was the third in a series of workshops for a fast-growing community, following the events at the universities of Lugano in 2011 and Manchester in 2013. In 2015, the 4th workshop will be held at TU Dresden as announced here at JSC, and further events are already envisaged for the following years.
