The IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Parallel
Processing invites engineers and scientists from around the world to
participate in the 10th International Parallel Processing Symposium.
Established to advance knowledge in all areas of parallel processing and
related technologies, the symposium is the committee's primary event
for presenting the most recent research and development findings. In its
10th year, the now standard IPPS events include contributed technical
papers, keynote speeches and panels, workshops and tutorials, and an
industrial track and commercial exhibits.

WORKSHOPS: Workshops offer the opportunity for in-depth
exploration of selected topics. Those already planned for next year are
listed below. However, proposals for workshops to address other topics
in the field are encouraged. To organize a workshop, send a one page
proposal to the Symposium Chair by September 29, 1995. To participate
in an already planned workshop, contact organizer listed below:

paired activities give manufacturers of commercial products the
opportunity to both explain and demonstrate their wares. The Industrial
Track consists of original technical papers authored and presented by
representatives from various companies (one paper per company).
Topics of interest for papers include but are not limited to descriptions,
comparisons, or evaluations of the design, implementation, or
performance of an existing commercial system. Commercial Exhibits
allow vendors to display their products in an informal "walk-up and
talk" setting. Companies are encouraged to participate in both of these
events. For more details, contact the Industrial-Commercial Chair by
October 31, 1995.

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts that demonstrate original
unpublished research in all areas of parallel processing including
development of experimental or commercial systems as well as their
scientific and commercial applications. Topics of interest include but are
not limited to:

    Performance Modeling/Evaluation
    Signal & Image Processing Systems
    Parallel Implementations of Applications
    Parallel Programming Environments
    Parallel Algorithms
    Parallel Architectures
    Parallel Languages
    Special Purpose Processors
    Parallelizing Compilers
    Scientific Computing
    VLSI Systems
    Network Computing

To submit an original research paper, send to the Program Chair six
hard copies of your complete manuscript (not to exceed 25 double-
spaced pages of text including references, figures, tables, etc. and using
12 point type on 8.5 x 11 inch pages). Be sure to include postal and
e-mail addresses and vox and fax numbers. All manuscripts will be
reviewed. Manuscripts must be received by September 20, 1995.
Submissions received after that or exceeding the length limit may be
returned and not considered. Notification of review decisions will be
mailed by December 20, 1995. Camera-ready papers are due January
23, 1996. Proceedings will be available at the Symposium. Fax or
electronic submissions will not be considered.
