In order to exploit the extraordinary power of the new generation of
massively parallel machines, there is a great need for new parallelizing
compilers, programming tools, programming languages and algorithms. The
goal of HPF-94 is to evaluate the state of art in compilers and
programming tools for parallel machines and to be a forum for discussing
research projects and commercial products. The scope of the workshop
includes, but is not limited to:

-Scheduling techniques
-Program restructuring
-Parallel software development environments
-Compiling techniques
-Programming languages

The workshop will consist of tutorials, technical sessions and invited
keynote speakers. Authors are invited to submit extended abstracts and
full papers on research results and status of research projects.

About Sao Paulo:

Sao Paulo is the economic heart of Brazil with more than 12 million
inhabitants. It is a modern city that gives to the visitors all facilities
concerning transportation communication, accommodation and health care. It
is also a city of contrasts, such as many South American big cities.

Sao Paulo is about 400km from Rio de Janeiro and about one hour by car
from the Atlantic Ocean. The temperature (in March) varies between 14 and
30C (58-86F).

Concerning touristic places, Sao Paulo has lots of parks, museums,
theaters, show houses, night clubs, restaurants, pubs and it is also near
to some historic cities, forest reserves and nice beaches.

The language spoken is Portuguese, but it is easy to communicate in
Spanish, Italian, French and English.

On March 27th, there will be the Formula One GP Brazil at Interlagos. Due
to F1 race we advise attendants to make hotel reservations well in advance.
