Workshop on Automatic Differentiation
Thursday 14th and Friday 15th April 2005
Maison du Seminaire,
This 2-days workshop continues the series of the UK Automatic
Differentiation workshops, which took place twice a year
at Cranfield University (Shrivenham) and the University of Hertfordshire.
and is now going European.
These workshops provide a forum for the presentation
of theoretical developments in and applications of
Automatic Differentiation (AD) and adjoint methods.
The workshop is informal and presentations on subjects such
as work in progress, problem areas for AD, or possible application
areas, as well as completed work are welcome. We particularly
encourage PhD students and those new to the field to attend and
present their work.
This workshop puts some emphasis on development of
29, boulevard Franck Pilatte
Next AD workshop will take place in Cranfield UK, in november.

Many thanks to Chris Bischof, John Reid, and Jean Utke.
Abstracts and slides of all presentations are available online

ACCOMMODATION & TRAVEL:
Every participant will pay for one's lodging separately.
Lodging is not included in the fee.
We would advise you to stay right on the spot at the Maison du seminaire.
Those of you who attended AD2000 in Nice know the place.
Here are some pictures.
Comfort has improved since these spartan times, but the price is still reasonable.

Don't forget to mention you are with the INRIA workshop of April 14-15.
Otherwise there are other hotels in Nice.
Here are some maps dating back to AD2000 conference (may 2000). You
will find the Maison du seminaire and several other hotels.
Please notice that this is just an indication:

European cities and several American cities too. There is
a bus connection to downtown Nice.
