This volume comprises the proceedings of the 7th International Conference on Parallel Processing and Applied Mathematics - PPAM 2007, which was held in Gdan 'sk, Poland, September 9-12, 2007. It was organized by the Department of Computer and Information Sciences of the Czestochowa University of Techn- ogy, with the help of the TASK Academic Computer Centre in Gdansk. ' The main organizer was Roman Wyrzykowski. PPAM is a biennial conference. Six previous events have been held in di?erent places in Poland since 1994. The proceedings of the last three conferences have been published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (Na lecz' ow, 2001, vol. 2328; Czestochowa, 2003, vol. 3019; Poznan ', 2005, vol. 3911). The PPAM conferences have become an international forum for exchanging ideas between researchers involved in parallel and distributed computing, incl- ing theory and applications, as well as applied and computational mathematics. The focus of PPAM 2007 was on software tools which facilitate e?cient and c- venient utilization of modern computing architectures, as well as grid computing, and large-scale applications.
