Euro-Par is THE annual European conference in Parallel Processing.
It merges the former PARLE and CONPAR-VAPP conferences, two major
events of the field. The 1996 version will consist of a large panel
of highly focused workshops on all aspects of parallel processing,
from theory to practice, from academy to industry. They are expected
to present the latest advances in their respective domains. They
will be introduced by several high level tutorials of general
interest. More than 20 workshops have been launched in parallel,
ranging from 1/2 to 2 days. All accepted papers will appear in the
proceedings published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS Series.

Workshop #20:
                                                Instruction-Level Parallelism

A major challenge for computer architects and compiler designers is
how to exploit instruction-level parallelism (ILP) in
high-performance processors. Superscalar, superpipelined and VLIW
architectures are interesting design points within the architecture
spectrum, where multiple instructions are issued and executed in
parallel. A recent debate is whether one of these processor design
will prevail or should one look for a hybrid design? These questions
are particularly challenging when compiling issues for these machines
are also considered at the same time. With the challenge of ILP
exploitation, the old boundary at instruction set architecture is no
longer adequate, and compiler writers and architects must closely
work together toward a common goal. This workshop, is intended to
present a forum for researchers and developers in this field to
discuss and debate key issues of common interest with an emphasize on
the coordination between compiler writers and architects.

Topics of interest include:

1. Compilation techniques for ILP 2. ILP architecture innovations
3. Branch prediction and speculative execution 4. Cache and memory hierarchy
5. ILP theoretical foundations 6. Compiler and architecture co-design
7. Applications of ILP techniques 8. New topics on ILP (open)
9. ILP performance evaluation 10. Application-specific architectures

workshops. Please send all information requests and comments to Register today on the Euro-Par'96 mailing

                                  Additional information for Workshop #20
                                                Instruction-Level Parallelism

Submissions are expected to be no longer than 15 pages. The cover
page must clearly indicate the name, address, affiliation, phone and
fax numbers and electronic address of the author(s), plus a 100-word
abstract. The workshop number (20) and the workshop title related to
each submitted paper must also be clearly indicated on the cover
page. The official languages of the conference are English and
French. Submitted papers must not be simultaneously under review for
any other conference, and authors must point out any substantial
overlap with their previously published work.

        Electronic submissions are most strongly encouraged. They are mandatory
        for all people having access to standard electronic facilities.

They should consist of two e-mails:
. The first one containing an ASCII cover page, giving the author's full name,
address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address, a 100-word abstract and
. The second one with the printable file, most preferably in attachment.

Accepted formats are uuencoded compressed EPSF PostScript files (most
preferably generated by dvips). We are sorry not to be able to
accommodate other file formats. If at all possible, please attempt
to print the document on more than one brand/model of laser printers.
If your program requests it, assume that the document will be printed
on a 300 DPI standard PostScript Unix Sun laser printer. We will do
our best to get all files printed. If a file cannot be printed in
spite of all our efforts, we will have to reject the electronic
submission. In case of doubt, send us a (possibly preliminary) paper
version of the submission before the February 4, 1996 paper deadline
(one copy is enough in this case). We will consider that the
electronic version of the submission, if printable, is the final one.

The files should be mailed to and received
at this address before February 18, 1996, 12:00 GMT. Please note
that this is a firm deadline.

Paper submissions are only allowed for people without easy access to
standard electronic facilities. Authors should send 6 copies of their
submission to the official address below, postmarked before February
4, 1996. Please note that this is a firm deadline.

Proceedings. All accepted papers will be published by
SPRINGER-VERLAG in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science Series.
Proceedings will be available at the conference. Papers will be
published in 3 lengths: full papers (12 pages), short papers (8
pages), poster papers (4 pages).

                    Register on the mailing list: Today!
                    Deadline for paper submissions: February 4, 1996
                    Deadline for electronic submissions: February 18, 1996
                    Notification of acceptance: May 10, 1996
                    Final version due: June 10, 1996
                    Euro-Par'96 at ENS Lyon, France: August 27--29, 1996
