This 2-day workshop is the latest in a series that provides a forum for the presentation of theoretical developments in and applications of Automatic Differentiation (AD) and adjoint methods.

This workshop will involve a session on the challenges of developing AD tools for Fortran 95 (with a view to the eventual goal of differentiating C++) and a session on the use of AD in computational statistics (including propagation of uncertainty models). Other sessions will be scheduled depending on demand.

Confirmed attendees include: Mike Fagan Laurent Hascoet Paul Hovland

Further information will be posted on the conference website as it becomes available http://www.rmcs.cranfield.ac.uk/esd/amor/workshop/view

CONTRIBUTIONS

We welcome contributions on any aspect of AD at the workshop. If you would like to make a presentation on a piece of ongoing work, please contact Bruce Christianson as soon as possible.

We also hope to produce web-based post-proceedings following the workshop. The workshop is intended to focus upon work in progress, and incomplete results, but it would be helpful if you could submit an brief outline, or preliminary position paper, for distribution prior to the workshop.

REGISTRATION, ACCOMMODATION & TRAVEL

For further information please contact Johanna Hunt. (See below for contact details.)

FEES

There will be a break-even registration fee to defray reprographic and refreshment costs. (This fee includes two lunches and the Workshop dinner on Thursday night.) If you have no means of recovering your registration costs, please indicate this as a concessionary rate may be available in such case.

Academics 70
Non-Academics 100
Research Students 20*
 
Limited funding is available to part-cover travel and participation costs for research students. For further information please email Johanna Hunt.
