Starting in 1994, a series of workshops on Applied Parallel Computing, named Para94, Para95 and Para96, were successfully organized by the Danish Computing Centre for Research and Education (UNI-C) and Department of Informatics and Mathematical Modelling of the Technical University of Denmark (IMM/DTU) in Lyngby, Denmark. Jerzy Wasniewski initiated these workshops where also Jack Dongarra got involved during a longer visit to Lyngby, helping promote the meetings internationally. Since 1998, the workshops have become a Nordic effort, but both Jerzy and Jack have continued to be an integral part of the meetings. The main themes and locations of these and upcoming meetings are summarized below:
