                                                IFIP WG 10.3 (CONCURRENT SYSTEMS)
                                                          Working Conference on
Architectures and Compilation Techniques for Fine and Medium Grain Parallelism

                    January 20-22, 1993, Hotel Royal Plaza, Orlando, Florida, USA.

The purpose of this working conference is to bring together researchers in
the issues of architecture and software for parallel processing in
general, with an emphasis on fine and medium grain parallelism and
data-driven computations. One of the main emphases will be the analysis of
the interaction of the data-flow approach with new developments in other
approaches to fine and medium grain parallelism, namely, compilation
techniques for fine and medium grain parallelism, and non-data-flow
architectures, such as shared memory multiprocessors (medium grain) and
superscalars-superpipelined machines-VLIWs (fine-grain, small resource Von
Neumann architectures). The conference includes a high quality technical
program, as well as invited presentations from prominent researchers. The
proceedings are published by North-Holland.

The conference will be held at the Hotel Royal Plaza which is located in
the Walt Disney World Village. The hotel provides guaranteed access and
free shuttle to all of the Disney theme parks (Magic Kingdom, Epcot Center
and MGM Studios). Buses run all day, every 15-20 minutes. The hotel
offers several different dining facilities, including one open 24 hours,
and room service until 12:00 am. Amenities include heated pool, oversized
hot tub, sauna, tanning salon and children's playground. Each room has a
private balcony, color TV and VCR. Group tours to Bush Gardens, Universal
Studios, Sea World, Cypress Gardens, and most Florida attractions can be
arranged through Guest Services. On property car rentals, video camera
rentals, and a beauty salon are offered. Rooms for handicapped persons
are available on request.

Ground transportation from Orlando International Airport (17 miles) is
available through Mears, Town and Country and Transtar transportation
companies. Cost is approximately $12.00 per person, one way. Taxi service
is approximately $30.00 per car. Guests requiring transportation should
check with the transportation dispatcher at the airport (located outside
the baggage claim area).

As a service to the attendees, One Stop Travel Center, can provide
discounts for travel on various airlines. It can also facilitate
arrangements for Sea World and other Orlando area attractions. Contact
Deawn Dykes at 1-800-548-2131 and refer to the "IFIP Working Conference on
