Working Conference on "Problem Solving Environments for Scientific
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
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
