A Czech-U.S. Workshop on Iterative Methods and Parallel Computing was held from
June 16 to June 21, 1997 at the Devet Skal Hotel (literally "Nine Rocks") in
Milovy. The conference was attended by 118 participans from 21 countries.
The aim of the workshop was to bring together numerical
analysts, specialists in numerical linear algebra and parallel computing,
especially those interested in iterative methods and their applications in
computational mathematics. The emphasis of the meeting was on a
"workshop", i.e., on work among the participants, with periods of free time
for unstructured discussions.
Selected papers from the Milovy 1997 conference have been published
in special issues of
Numerical Linear Algebra with Applications, Volume 6,
Issue 2, 1999.
