AIMS & SCOPE OF THE CONFERENCE
The aim of the conference is to give an overview of the state-of-the-art of the
development, application and future trends in parallel computing, including
recent developments in cluster and metacomputing. Papers/posters covering one or
more of the topic areas can be submitted until the respective due dates.
Section 1: Applications
The application of parallel computers to solve all types of business, industrial, scientific
and engineering problems. The emphasis should be on the impact of the parallel
Section 2: Algorithms
Numerical and non-numerical parallel algorithms, also addressing aspects of
scalability and adaptability.
Section 3: System Software & Hardware Architectures
Operating systems; compilers; techniques such as threading, scheduling, load balancing,
message passing, automatic parallelisation; hardware architectures; communication systems;
For each topic aspects relating to:
may be discussed.
- software engineering methodologies
- programming paradigms
- development environments
- performance and benchmarking
- multimedia, visualisation & virtual reality
Preference will be given to papers discussing real implementations and practical experiences.

The scientific programme will consist of invited papers, contributed papers and
posters. Workshops, an industrial session and an exhibition of equipment are also
On Monday, 15 September 1997, a number of workshops are planned. These can take
the form of selected papers on a special topic, panel discussions, short courses,
etc. Persons interested in organising a workshop are invited to send proposals to
the Conference Committee. In the case of accepted proposals arrangements will be
made for the necessary facilities to be available. The Committee cannot, however,
take any responsibility for the financial aspects of workshops.
Proposals should be sent in writing to the Conference Office before 31 March
1997. Proposals should give: the names of the organiser(s) of the workshop, the
proposed title, a short summary of the contents, the format (i.e. panel
discussion, course, etc.), an estimate of the expected number of participants and
a cost estimate.
Information on and a registration form for workshops will be included in the
