7th Applied Mathematics Symposium Münster

Advanced Solvers for modern Architectures 2019

November 11-13, 2019

Münster, Germany


For exascale applications an increasing communication overhead and as well as local concurrency pose the major challenges to obtain a significant portion of the overall peak performance. In the last years these problems have gained a lot of attention and different techniques were developed to improve the scalability of linear and non-linear solvers. This workshop wants to gather experts to discuss topics like

  • communication avoiding Krylov methods
  • asynchronicity in solvers
  • non-linear preconditioning
  • strong preconditioners (GMG and DD)
  • blocked and enriched Krylov methods.
All these approaches aim at increasing local costs and reducing or hiding global communication costs, which will contribute to better scalability.

The workshop takes place in a seminar center next to the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science in Münster which is located at (Google Maps):

Einsteinstrasse 62
48149 Münster

The address of the seminar center itself is Orleansring 12.


The University of Münster is located in Münster, Germany. The address of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science is Einsteinstrasse 62 and is easily available on most navigation systems.
  • By plane:
    The airport Münster-Osnabrück (FMO) is located 30 km from Münster. Shuttle service by bus to Münster central station is available (45 min). The airport Düsseldorf (DUS) is further away, but offers far more international connections. The train ride to Münster central station is 90 minutes. Details about connecting busses and trains are available via bahn.de.
  • Public transport:
    Münster is well connected by train. For details see Deutsche Bahn. Starting at central station, several bus lines lead to the department. Best choices are probably number bus routes 5, 11, 12, 22 direction Gievenbeck or Nienberge. Get off at bus stop Coesfelder Kreuz after about 15 minutes.
    To get to the department, go right and cross the street with traffic lights. There is a flat building right after the corner which is connected to a 9-story-building, the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science. Behind these buildings, there are two modern buildings with an aluminium-colored corrugated sheet facade. The workshop takes place in the modern building on the left.
    As an alternative, take a taxi from the main station.
  • By car:
    Use your favorite routing service. There are parking lots next to the buildings at

    Orleansring 10-12, 48149 Münster, Germany

    The buildings are new, and so is their address. Google Maps has them correctly listed.


(Fees include lunch, conference dinner and free public transport in the city of Münster.)
