                                                        CALL FOR PAPERS

International Conference on Parallel Architectures and Compilation Techniques
                                        June 27-29, 1995, Limassol, Cyprus

Submit five copies of a 20 page double-spaced manuscript by January 10, 1995, to

                    Sponsored by the IFIP WG 10.3 (Concurrent Systems), ACM SIGARCH,
                                          and IEEE TC on Computer Architecture.


There are enormous opportunities for parallelism
in future generation high-performance computer systems. Facing the
challenge of exploiting such parallelism, a simple "instruction set"
as a binding contract between architects and compiler writers may no
longer be enough. Based on the success and enthusiastic feedback
received from the first working conference held in Orlando, Florida in
January 1993, as well as the second PACT (Montreal, Canada, August
1994), the purpose of this working conference is to provide an open
forum for the parallel architecture and compiler research communities
to discuss and debate key issues of common interest and see how
parallelism can be enhanced and exploited more efficiently in a joint
effort. Also we aim at bringing together researchers with interest in
both conventional and non-conventional approaches (e.g., data-flow,
multithreading, etc.) to foster communication. Papers are solicited
which contain significant novel ideas and research results. Conference
topics include (but are not limited to):

              o Novel computation models for fine and medium grain parallelism

              o Architectures and compilers for medium grain parallelism

              o Architectures and compilers for fine grain parallelism

              o Compiler / hardware techniques for exploitation of fine-grain
                  parallelism in massively parallel machines

              o Major projects in data-driven and multithreaded machines,
                  and other competing novel approaches to parallelism

              o Exploitation of fine grain and medium grain parallelism in
                  application-specific architectures using data-flow,
                  multithreaded or related approaches.


Authors should submit 5 copies of a 20 page double-spaced manuscript
to the following address before January 10, 1995. Authors will be
notified of final decision before March 10, 1995. All accepted papers
will appear in the conference proceedings.
