This is the FINAL call for papers for HPCS'97 (the 11th Annual
International Symposium on High Performance Computing
Systems). Included below is information on the three confirmed invited
speakers as well as information about the expected costs of conference
registration and accomodations. Remember the final date for RECEIPT of
manuscripts is February 28th, 1997. We hope to see you all at HPCS'97
this summer.


Arvind is the Johnson Professor and Head of the Computation Structures
Group at the Laboratory for Computer Science, Dept. of Electrical
Engineering and Computer Science, Massachusetts Institute of
Technology . His research interests span all areas of parallel
computation as well as declarative programming. He is also one of the
creators of the Dynamic Dataflow paradigm for fine granularity
parallel computation. Dr. Arvind serves on the editorial boards of
numerous journals and is an active consultant to industry. He has
over 50 recent publications in parallel computing, is an IEEE Fellow
and last year received the IEEE's "Charles Babbage Outstanding
Scientist" award.

Geoffrey C. Fox is Professor of Computer Science and Professor of
Physics at Syracuse University as well as Director of the Northeastern
Parallel Architecture Center (NPAC). His research interests include
many aspects of parallel computation, theoretical physics, and
applications of parallel processing to large scale scientific
problems. Dr. Fox serves on the editorial board of six journals, has
edited two books, and has organized eight conferences. He has also
authored four books and several hundred research papers on parallel
computation and particle physics.

Christian Lengauer is Professor of Computer Science at the University
of Passau in Germany and an honorary fellow of the Computer Science
Department at the University of Edinburgh. His research is in the area
of the application of formal methods in parallel programming and
parallelization as well as object orientation in parallel systems. He
is editor of "Parallel Processing Letters", "Science of Computer
Programming", and "Discrete Math and Theoretical Computer Science".
Dr. Lenguaer also serves on the steering committee of the Euro-Par
conference and is program chair for Euro-Par'97 held this year in
Passau. He has over a dozen research papers focusing on parallel
processing in the last three years.


While the final price of conference registration is yet to be
determined, we estimate a cost of less than $400 CDN (approx. $300
US). There will be an approximate 15% discount for early registration
and at least a 30% discount for student attendees. These prices will
include both hardcopy and CD-ROM proceedings, admission to all
technical sessions and vendor exhibits, conference banquet and
reception as well as daily refreshments.

Estimated room rates at the Crowne Plaza Hotel (the conferene venue)
are as indicated in the following table. This represents a special
conference rate for HPCS'97.

  Room Type Price
  --------- -----
  Single $ 85.00 CDN (approx. $63.50 US)
  Double $ 95.00 CDN (approx. $73.00 US)
  Executive Suite $115.00 CDN (approx. $88.50 US)


As this is the final Call For Papers, you will be unable to receive
additional information about HPCS'97 from this forum. Please see the web
page for additional and constantly
updated information about the conference. A Call for Participation will
appear here together with a list of accepted papers in a little over two
month's time.

The 11th Annual International symposium on High Performance Computing
Systems (HPCS'97) will be held July 10th to 12th, 1997 at the Crowne
Plaza Hotel in downtown Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. HPCS'97 is hosted
by the Department of Computer Science at the University of Manitoba
with the assistance of the sponsoring organization Super*Can.

The international symposium covers all aspects of high performance
computing; both applied as well as theoretical. Topic areas of
interest include architecture, enabling technologies, software
systems, algorithms, and applications for parallel, distributed, or
vector systems. However, papers addressing all aspects of high
performance computing are also welcome. The symposium will be fully
refereed and submissions are expected to represent exceptional work.

The symposium will include presentations of accepted technical papers,
presentations by invited distinguished speakers, and vendor exhibits
in an atmosphere which promotes conversation and collaboration. Both
national and international participation is encouraged. As well,
historically, a number of organizational meetings have also been
organized to coincide with this symposium.

The symposium proceedings will be published in paper format (which
will be available at the symposium) and possibly also in CD-ROM format
with full text indexing. A small selection of `best papers' will be
determined after the conference and all participants will be advised
of such. The possibility of re-publishing these papers in a special
journal issue is currently being considered.


The following topics are suggested as particular examples of interest
to the symposium, however, submissions are not limited to these
topics. All submissions will be reviewed in context of their relevance
to high performance computing systems.

    * High Performance Applications (e.g. scientific, commercial, etc.)
    * Distributed Systems and Advanced Applications (e.g. multimedia,
        cooperative systems)
    * Scaleable and Interoperable Systems and Associated Standards
    * Software Systems (e.g. operating system support, middleware,
        development environments, tools, distributed objects)
    * Architecture (e.g. VLSI, SIMD, MIMD, parallel, vector, special-purpose)
    * Interconnection Networks (e.g. ATM based, bus-based, optical)
    * Communications (e.g. routing algorithms, switching techniques,
        wireless, mobile)
    * Visualization (e.g. scientific visualization, debugging and load
        balancing tools)
    * Photonics and Optical Computing
    * Performance Issues (e.g. benchmarks, performance measurement, evaluation
        and prediction)
    * Modeling and Simulation of High Performance Systems
    * Advanced Compilation Techniques (e.g. parallelizing compilers)
    * Programming Languages for Parallel and other High Performance
        Computing Environments
    * Parallel/Distributed/Vector Algorithms
    * Reliability and Fault Tolerance
    * Embedded and Real Time Systems
    * Digital Signal Processing
    * Neural Computing, Genetic Algorithms and their applications
    * Systolic and Cellular Automaton (CA) Techniques
    * Issues in High Performance Computing (e.g. evolving paradigms such
        as NOW/COW, PIM Systems as well as grand challenge problems)

Submit papers of ten or less pages to the program chair by February
28th, 1997. Papers are to be numbered starting from page one,
be single spaced with minimum of 11pt font and are to include an
abstract of 250 words or less together with up to eight keywords
describing the paper's content. Electronic submission of papers in
structured PostScript format via e-mail directly to the program chair

limit or otherwise deviating significantly from the requested format
may be rejected without review.

All papers will be fully refereed by a minimum of two reviewers with
background in the areas of the reported work. All authors will receive
referees' comments. Such comments will be divided into two categories:
required and optional changes. All required changes will need to be
incorporated prior to final acceptance in the symposium proceedings.


All papers submitted will be evaluated based on the following criteria:
    * contribution to the area of research,
    * novelty of the approach,
    * soundness of results,
    * relevance to high performance computing systems, and
    * clarity of presentation.
