      * LOCATION






IPPS '96 will include the customary events of contributed technical
papers, keynote addresses, workshops, and tutorials. An industrial
track has been organized and some commercial participants will mount
exhibits. The workshops will be conducted on Monday & Tuesday only and
the tutorials will be presented on Tuesday. Wednesday through Friday
will feature sessions for contributed papers along with industrial
track presentations and a panel discussion on Thursday. Each day will
open with a keynote address.


There will be 126 contributed technical papers to be presented in 21
technical sessions. Topics span the design, development, use, and
analysis of parallel processing systems.


Wednesday, April 17th: Can Multithreaded Programming Save Massively Parallel
Charles E. Leiserson, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Thursday, April 18th: MPPs versus Clusters
Charles L. Seitz, Myricom, Inc.
Friday, April 19th: Clusters for Commercial Computing: An Invisible
Gregory F. Pfister, IBM Server Group, Austin


Thursday, April 18th:
For a Massive Number of Massively Parallel Machines: What Are the Target
Applications, Who Are the Target Users, and What New R&D Is Needed to Hit the
Moderator: H.J. Siegel, Purdue University


Ten workshops have been organized: five begin on Monday, five on Tuesday and
all conclude by the end of Tuesday. Workshops are open to all symposium
registrants, and descriptions of each follow here in the Advance Program. Since
submission criteria and deadlines vary, contact individual workshop organizers
for more information. IPPS '96 workshops are:

(Starting on Monday, April 15th)

1. Formal Methods for Parallel Programming: Theory and Applications
2. Reconfigurable Architectures and Algorithms
3. Fault-Tolerant Parallel and Distributed Systems
4. Parallel and Distributed Real-Time Systems
5. Heterogeneous Computing

(Starting on Tuesday, April 16th)

6. Job Scheduling Strategies for Parallel Processing
7. High-Level Programming Models and Supportive Environments
8. Randomized Parallel Computing
9. Solving Irregular Problems on Distributed Memory Machines
10. High-Speed Network Computing


There will be two tutorials, and both will be held on Tuesday. Tutorial 1 will
be held in the morning and Tutorial 2 will be held in the afternoon, so it will
be possible to register for both sessions. The topics are:

1. An Introduction to the Message-Passing Interface (MPI)
2. Introduction to Parallel and Distributed Simulation Techniques With
      Applications to VLSI, Multiprocessor Architectures, and Mobile
      Telecommunication Systems


The Industrial Track on Thursday will consist of technical papers authored by
representatives from commercial vendors some of whom will also be exhibiting.
For more information on participation and planned exhibits, contact
Industrial-Commercial Chair John K. Antonio (


Refreshments will be served at several breaks throughout the day. On Wednesday
and Thursday, there will be a 3 hour mid-day break, and IPPS attendees are
encouraged to organize recreational and explorational activities during this
time. It will also be a chance to "hit the beach" and return refreshed for late
afternoon sessions. An IPPS get-together is planned for Wednesday evening
(details at registration) and everyone is invited to the traditional Beach
Party on Friday.


Note that advance registration must be sent to the IEEE Computer
Society by March 15, 1996. Registrations after March 29, 1996 will be
