Mini-workshop on Accelerating Fermion Algorithms at HLRZ Jülich

February 21-23, 1996
HLRZ, Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany

The Computational Particle Physics Group HLRZ at Jülich, and DESY, Hamburg, organized a small, informal Mini-workshop on Accelerating Fermion Algorithms at HLRZ on the KFA site in Jülich in the period February 21st to 23rd, 1996.

With the dedicated parallel computers of today we have definitely entered the era of full QCD simulations, with huge-scale production runs amounting to ten-thousands of GFlops hours in runtime. There has been quite some progress recently in pushing the efficiency of algorithms and implementations, both within the classical Hybrid Monte Carlo and in alternative methods. But it has been obvious that the tremendous resources necessary to make progress in our understanding of nonperturbative QCD call for continued efforts towards improvements both in methods and tools.
