Overview

This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-proceedings of the 6th International Conference on High Performance Computing for Computational Science, VECPAR 2004, held in Valencia, Spain, in June 2004.

The 48 revised full papers presented together with 5 invited papers were carefully selected during two rounds of reviewing and improvement from initially 130 contributions. The papers are organized in topical sections on large-scale computations, data management and data mining, GRID computing infrastructure, cluster computing, parallel and distributed computing, and computational linear and non-linear algebra.
