This book covers a broad spectrum of topics relating to developments in scientific computing, including meta-computers and their use; networked computing; interoperability of architectures and programming models; coupled simulations involving multiple physical modelling; and compatibility of independent simulations of various phenomena for the design of a single product. This symposium brought together technology providers, application programme developers and industrial users of high performance computing systems. The articles address the current and future developments of computing systems for numerical simulation seen from these various viewpoints. The main issues raised include these questions: clustered computing - should we be looking for commodity PC-clusters or more efficient ways to exploit the networking of large computing centres?; as the expectations of numerical simulation increase, what strategies should be adopted to handle multiphysics, multiscale applications?; and once we have the heterogeneous computing systems with interacting applications software, what technologies are required to incorporate these within the industrial concern's design infrastructure?. This proceedings collection doesn't completely answer all of these questions, but it does demonstrate that major advances are being made toward providing technological solutions to these questions, and it poses problems to be addressed in the future.
