About this book

The aim of this conference was to investigate the motivation for and development of Problem Solving Environments (PSEs) for Scientific Computing. The meeting was interdisciplinary, including experts in Physics, Chemistry, Oceanography, Biology and fields of Engineering, as well as authorities in Software Engineering, Numerical Software Construction, Computing Science, Computational Mathematics and Statistics. Whilst some Working Conferences are essentially review meetings in the course of the development of a particular field, it is evident that focussed consideration of problem solving environments for many people started with this meeting.
