Announcement and Call for Papers

Conference on High Performance Functional Computing

Denver, Co

April 9-11, 1995

Sponsored by

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
(US Department of Energy)

Co-sponsored by

Colorado State University


John Feo (Livermore)

Rod Oldehoeft (Colorado State)

Functional computing has proven to be an efficient and workable paradigm
for extracting high performance and enhancing portability in parallel
programs. We are interested in the current state of the art and future
research directions which emphasize high performance computing and its
application to real-world problems. We can position functional computing
as the best choice for exploiting parallelism on existing and future
platforms for the rest of this and the next century.

To provide for the future of functional computing, we must investigate
areas such as the incorporation of object-oriented features into a hybrid
programming paradigm and efficient utilization of architectural features
of massively parallel, distributed memory, communications-bound and
multi-threaded platforms. These topics are just a few of the many
research areas that will provide the next steps in the evolution of
functional computing.

                                                              CALL FOR PAPERS

We invite submissions of papers and posters from interested parties.
Possible topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

* languages
* compilers
* debuggers
* programming tools
* multithreaded architectures
* applications
