The 11th annual International Parallel Processing Symposium (IPPS'97)
will be held April 1-5, 1997 at the University of Geneva,
Switzerland. The symposium is sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society's
Technical Committee on Parallel Processing and will be held in
cooperation with ACM SIGARCH. IPPS'97 is a forum for engineers and
scientists from around the world to present the latest research
findings in all aspects of parallel processing. For detailed
information please refer to WWW:



With the advent of the de facto standards Parallel Virtual Machine
(PVM) and Message Passing Interface (MPI), parallel programming using
the message-passing style has reached a certain level of
maturity. However, in terms of convenience and productivity, this
parallel programming style is often held to correspond to
assembler-level programming of sequential computers.

One of the keys for a (commercial) breakthrough of parallel
processing, therefore, are high-level programming models that allow to
produce truly efficient code. Along this way, languages and packages
have been established which are more convenient than explicit message
passing and allow higher productivity in software development;
examples are High Performance Fortran (HPF), thread packages for
shared memory-based programming, and Shared Virtual Memory (SVM)

Yet, current implementations of high-level programming models often
suffer from low performance of the generated code, from the lack of
corresponding high-level development tools, e.g. for performance
analysis, and from restricted applicability, e.g. to the data parallel
programming style. This situation requires strong research efforts in
the design of parallel programming models and languages that are both
at a high conceptual level and implemented efficiently, in the
development of supportive tools, and in the integration of languages
and tools into convenient programming environments. Hardware and
operating system support for high-level programming, e.g. distributed
shared memory and monitoring interfaces, are further areas of

This workshop provides a forum for researchers and commercial
developers to meet and discuss the various hardware and software
issues involved in the design and use of high-level programming models
and supportive environments. Papers are invited in areas such as (but
not limited to) the following:

      * Concepts and languages for high-level parallel programming.
      * Concurrent object-oriented programming.
      * Automatic parallelization and optimization.
      * High-level programming environments.
      * Performance analysis techniques and tools.
      * Implementation techniques for high-level programming models.
      * Distributed shared memory.
      * Architectural support for high-level programming models.

HIPS'97 will consist of the presentations of submitted research
articles, short presentations and discussions of ongoing projects,=20
and an invited talk.


Authors' Instructions

To submit an original research article, send an electronic version of
your complete manuscript in postscript format to: Please make sure that the postscript
file is viewable using the "ghostview" tool. Papers must not exceed 15
double-spaced pages of text, including title, author(s), abstract,
five key words, figures, tables, and references, and using 12-point
type on 8.5x11-inch pages.

All manuscripts will be reviewed. Manuscripts must be received by
November 15, 1996. Notification of review decisions will be mailed by
December 31, 1996. Camera-ready papers are due January 31, 1997. The
research articles will presumably be published by IEEE CS
Press. Proceedings will be available at HIPS'97 and through the
publisher thereafter.
