                                                                Call for Papers

                                                            Special Issue of the
                                  Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing

                                            Multithreading for Multiprocessors


Papers are solicited for a special issue of the Journal of Parallel and
Distributed Computing (JPDC) on Multithreading for Multiprocessors to be
published in October 1996.

Recently, lightweight threads have received much attention in the area of
parallel and distributed computing as a mechanism for supporting various
levels of parallelism, for enabling dynamic load balancing, for supporting
virtual processors, and for providing latency tolerance capabilities. In
light of this increasing demand for lightweight threads, many new systems
have been designed to support threads in a parallel and distributed
environment, and several committees, including POSIX, are currently
working on standardization efforts for threads and thread-based computer

This special issue will include a set of original articles from both
industry and academia that represents the current state-of-the-art in
multithreaded multiprocessor systems for parallel and distributed
computing. Possible topics include (but are not limited to):

      * Hardware/Operating System support for lightweight threads
      * Multithreaded systems supporting fine- and medium-grain parallelism
      * Standardization efforts for multithreaded systems
      * Simulation of multithreaded systems
      * Efficiency issues for multithreaded systems
      * Performance prediction/analysis for multithreaded systems
      * Multithreaded runtime systems for languages and applications
      * Languages supporting parallel multithreaded execution

Authors should follow the JPDC manuscript format as described in the
Information for Authors at the end of each issue of JPDC. Five copies of
complete double-spaced manuscripts should be sent to either one of the two
co-guest editors by December 1, 1995. Electronic (PostScript only)
submissions are encouraged. Authors will be notified of the final
publication decision by March 1, 1996. Only original, unpublished work
will be considered; manuscripts resembling any previously published work
in a journal are unacceptable.
