Working Conference on "Problem Solving Environments for Scientific Computing"

A Working Conference on "Problem Solving Environments for Scientific Computing" was held 17 - 21 June 1985 in Sophia-Antipolis, France. Although the general-purpose scientific languages form the basis of general purpose scientific computation, there is a need for more specialized languages and computing environments. These can free the user from the necessity to learn a sophisticated programming language, and they can address the problem area directly using its own vocabulary. The list of topics included self contained versus knowledge-based systems, user interfaces, data flow and structures, parsing the user dialogue, algorithm selection, interpretation of results, hardware support.

The proceedings of this conference, edited by Brian Ford and Françoise Chatelin, has appeared in the IFIP series of North-Holland, Amsterdam 1987. ISBN 0-444-70254-7

The list of contents is available.
