    Special issue of IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering

    Architecture-Independent Languages and Software Tools
                                      for Parallel Processing

Design and adoption of architecture independent programming languages
and tools are necessary for general-purpose parallel processing. This
approach allows development of portable and standardized parallel
software on different parallel architectures, from SIMD machines to
distributed-memory MIMD computers. The goal of this special issue is
to address theoretical and practical issues in
architecture-independent programming models, languages, and tools for
parallel processing, present software engineering techniques in
parallel programming, and report experiences in real-life applications
using either new high-level languages or architecture-independent
software environments. Further, this theme issue aims to improve the
knowledge of the user community about parallel software development
tools and provide innovative ideas on practical high-level programming
of high-performance computers. Areas of interest include, but are not
limited to:

        o Architecture-independent programming models for parallel
        o Comparison of languages and tools for parallel software con-
        o High-level software paradigms for parallel processing;
        o Applications of architecture-independent parallel software tools;
        o Environments and tools for management of parallel software;
        o New high-performance environments and programming tools;
        o Practical ideas and software engineering techniques in par-
            allel programming;
        o Case Studies - success as well as failure stories.

Papers should report innovative ideas and practical results in real-
life applications; they should include evaluations through analy- sis,
simulation and experiments possibly on different parallel plat-
forms. Please submit six copies of your manuscript to one of the guest
editors by May 30, 1998:
