                                                CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

                                                    Syracuse, New York
                                                      July 21-23, 1993

                                                          sponsored by
                                  The CASE Center, Syracuse University
                                  Massachusetts Institute of Technology

        Following the success of last year's Associative Processing and
Applications Workshop, we are pleased to announce the 2nd Workshop which
will be held at Syracuse University on Wednesday, 21st to Friday, 23rd of
July 1993.

This Workshop is intended to bring together researchers in academia and
industry working on the design, analysis, development, and application of
massively-parallel associative processing. The goal of the workshop is to
promote interaction between researchers interested in the most recent
technological advances relevant to associative processing. In addition,
the format of the workshop will be kept very informal to encourage authors
to report on work in progress. Please note that only extended abstracts
will be required.

The design of associative processors, due to their highly specialized
nature, requires an in-depth understanding of the computational
requirements of the applications of interest in order to create cost
effective processor architectures. It is the identification of the
relationships between applications and associative processor architecture
that has and will continue to determine how new or improved technologies
will influence and be used in further processor developments.
Consequently, papers that deal with large applications, programming
paradigms, machine prototypes, and modeling techniques are of particular

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

* applications - either implemented, or under development
* software models of associative processors - functional, stochastic, etc.
* architectures - simulated or experimental results from chips to
                                    entire systems, tradeoff studies
* physical design - CAM cell design, CAM chip design, silicon compilation
* interfaces - von Neumann/associative, special controllers, etc.
* algorithm analysis - time complexity, hardware requirements
* programming paradigms - software development environments, tools, and
* program mapping - techniques for compiling high level languages
                                        to associative machines

Attendance will be limited to approximately fifty (50) people to insure
time for excellent interaction between workshop participants.


Authors are invited to send six (6) copies of an extended abstract by May
8, 1993. Abstracts are restricted to no more than 5 double-spaced pages
(1500 words), not including bibliography or figures. Abstracts must
include a cover letter with the following information: title of paper,
full names of authors, postal addresses and email-addresses of the
authors, and keywords indicative of the theme of the paper. The abstracts
will be refereed, and the authors will be notified of acceptance by June
5, 1993. As the format of this workshop will be informal, full length
papers, although encouraged, are not required. Accepted abstracts will be
duplicated and distributed to all participants at the workshop.

All submissions and inquiries for further information should be directed to:

                                      WORKSHOP LOCATION and FEE

The workshop will be held at the CASE center, which is located in the
Center for Science and Technology on the Syracuse University campus. The
cost will be $85 per attendee, and includes:

* "Get-Acquainted" reception on July 21st
* Luncheon on July 22nd
* Refreshments
* Copy of abstracts
