Building complex meshes for large-scale numerical simulations presents immense difficulties in exploiting high-performance computers. Industry and research leaders describe the current state of the art for generating meshes for such large scientific problems. This is followed by a panel and general audience discussion of the algorithmic and architectural issues surrounding the generation of meshes with 10/sup 7/ to 10/sup 9/ grid points. (The terms "mesh" and "grid" are used interchangeably in the literature).
