This panel session focuses on utilization of Java for numeric-intensive applications, including the advantages and disadvantages of Java for future use with industrial independent software vendor (ISV)-based finite element methods (FEM) codes. Discussion will address both partial use of Java and/or complete code implementation; activities in this area are already in progress and have been reported by the Java Grande Forum (see http://www.javagrande.org). Some of the issues that will be

This session is represented by biographical sketches of the panel participants, their individual reflections on the panel theme, and a list of related Internet references. ᭧
