Workshop on Fine-Grain Massively Parallel Coordination
Intl. Symp. on Computer Architecture
San Diego, California
May 14-15, 1993
Parallel computing consists of alternating independent computation
(on individual processors) and coordination among processors; it is the
coordination which distinguishes parallel from uniprocessor operation.
Coordination includes synchronization, communication, scheduling, and
resource management. Efficient coordination is critical to exploiting
fine- or even medium-grain concurrency and effects performance, static vs.
dynamic tradeoffs, degree of asynchrony, and many other aspects of
parallel processor implementation and semantics.
There is a growing trend towards using sequential microprocessors
as a base for parallel machines.
. As context switching time increases, how can processors be
coordinated efficiently? Does this condemn us to
coarse-grain machines, or can groups of processors be scheduled to
minimize context switching? Are fine-grain architectures only
achievable with custom processor hardware? Are there fundamental
tradeoffs between coordination efficiency and sequential processing
. What are a sufficient set of coordination mechanisms, and how can
they be implemented in the network or memory (including caches)?
How can these implementations compensate for the lack of fine-grain
parallelism support at the processor level?
What are the tradeoffs of properties such as virtualizability and
fault tolerance versus hardware cost, scalability, and efficiency?
What properties should be guaranteed by the software system
versus the architecture?
. What is the impact of compile-time analysis on coordination,
including scheduling and resource allocation?

THE FEDERATED COMPUTING RESEARCH CONFERENCE
The Federated Computing Research Conference (FCRC) will run from May 14 to
May 22 in San Diego, California, USA. The FCRC is an effort to bring
together a spectrum of individual computing research conferences and
workshops at a common site and at roughly the same time. In addition,
mornings will begin with joint plenary talks on topics of broad appeal to
the computing research community. The plenary speakers will include:
Laszlo Babai, Richard Karp, Guy L. Steele, Jr., and Maurice Wilkes. The
FCRC constituent conferences are the:
* 25th Annual ACM Symposium on Theory of Computing (STOC), May 16-18
* 20th Annual Int'l Symposium on Computer Architecture (ISCA), May 17-19
* 9th Annual ACM Symposium on Computational Geometry, May 19-21
* Structure in Complexity Theory, 8th Annual IEEE Conference
(Structures), May 18-21
* 7th Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Simulation (PADS), May 16-19
* 4th ACM SIGPLAN Symposium on Principles and Practices of Parallel
Programming (PPoPP), May 19-21
* 3rd Workshop on Parallel Algorithms (WOPA), May 19-20
* ACM/ONR Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Debugging, May 17-18
* CRA Workshop on Academic Careers for Women, May 15
SPONSORS of FCRC
