Sisal (Streams and Iterations in a Single-Assignment Language) is a
general- purpose functional language that supports the development of
determinate, high performance, machine-independent parallel software. It
is available on numerous commercial computers, both sequential and
parallel, under the Unix(TM) operating system. Sisal is used by
practitioners and researchers at over one hundred industrial and academic
sites worldwide, for a wide range of pursuits. Among these are physics
and material simulations, biological simulations, mathematical algorithms
and optimization, parallel algorithm performance and scaling, programming
language design, advanced compilation and optimization techniques, and
parallel computing on complex system architectures.

The research and user communities continue to grow, and interest arises in
porting Sisal to new systems as they are developed. This meeting brings
together Sisal users, implementers, and researchers, and those interested
in functional and hybrid parallel programming languages.

Call for Papers
