                                                                  PACT '97

                                      The 1997 International Conference on
                        Parallel Architectures and Compilation Techniques

                                                      November 11-15, 1997

Current and future generation computer systems are aggressively
pursuing parallelism for increased performance. As the field matures,
the gulf between hardware and software performance grows larger. The
purpose of this working conference, the sixth in the series, is to
provide an open forum for the parallel architecture and compiler
research communities to debate key issues of common interest and to
discuss how the two communities migh= t work together to more
efficiently exploit the performance of parallel systems. We invite
researchers with interest in both conventional and non-conventional
approaches (MPP, SMP, clustered-SMP, data-flow, multi-threading, and
optical) to participate. We solicit papers which contain significant
novel ideas and research results, and tutorial proposals in the
conference=D5s general areas. Conference topics include (but are not
limited to):

* Parallel architectures and computation models;
* Application-specific parallel architectures;
* Compilers for parallel computer systems;
* Compiler/hardware support for reducing memory latencies;
* Compiler/hardware support for exploiting fine and medium grain
* Compiler/hardware support for exploiting instruction-level parallelism;
* New parallel programming languages and paradigms;
* Application studies that demonstrate the performance of parallel

Further information, including full instructions for submitting papers
and tutorial proposals can be found at All
accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings, provided an
author presents the paper at the conference.

Paper submission deadline: May 12, 1997
