                                IEEE Technical Committee on Parallel Processing

                                        Announcement and Call for Participation

              A new Technical Committee on Parallel Processing (TCPP) has been
          appointed by the IEEE Computer Society Board of Governors at their
          June 1992 meeting. As state-of-the-art parallel computers are being
          developed around the world, there is a strong need for interaction,
          cooperation, and information exchange among scientists and engineers
          to accelerate the advances in this field. The establishment of TCPP
          is a major step towards providing a forum for such activities. TCPP
          seeks the participation of all scientists and engineers
          in the area of parallel processing.


              The main objectives of TCPP are:

                  1. to act as a forum for scientists and engineers throughout the
                        world in the area of parallel processing to express their views
                        and exchange ideas through sponsored meetings, and

                  2. to assume leadership in reaching out to the parallel processing
                        community in

                              - sponsoring technical meetings,
                              - assist IEEE Computer Society in bringing out books on
                                  parallel processing and in acquiring and distributing
                                  videos of technical presentations,
                              - set guidelines for undergraduate and graduate education
                                  in parallel processing, and
                              - foster interaction among academia, funding agencies,
                                  national laboratories, and industry.


              For further information, please contact:

          Newsletter and Call for Articles

              TCPP newsletter will serve as a forum for scientists and
          engineers in the area of parallel processing to express their
          opinions and views. The emphasis of the newsletter will be to
          expedite exchange of information among its readers. Short
          articles in all areas related to parallel processing will be
          considered for publication. Items of interest include (but
          not limited to):

                          - technical summaries of research results,
                          - announcement of new parallel processing systems,
                              technologies and standards,
                          - report on projects under development in academia,
                              industry and national laboratories,
                          - opinions on current and future trends in parallel
                          - review of new books, and
                          - information on new courses in parallel processing

              Opinions expressed in the contributions will be those of the
          individual authors rather than the official position of TCPP,
          the IEEE Computer Society, or organizations to which the
          author(s) may be affiliated. Besides the articles, the newsletter
          will be covering announcements of general interest: calendar of
          events about upcoming conferences, workshops and symposia, and
          call for papers (including upcoming special issues of journals).

              In its first year, TCPP is planning to bring out three issues of
          the newsletter. Short articles (in camera-ready form or LaTeX format)
          can be sent to either one of the newsletter editors:
