                                                    CALL FOR PAPERS

                                              ACM 1997 Workshop on
                    Java for Science and Engineering Computation

                                Sponsored by SIGPLAN and SIGNUM

                                Las Vegas, Nevada, June 21, 1997
                          (In Conjunction with ACM SIGPLAN PPoPP)

The workshop on Java for Science and Engineering Computation is aimed
at discussing all issues of using Java in simulations where today we
use Fortran and C++. We include both classic Grand Challenge
applications and libraries as well as distributed simulation as in
Forces Modeling seen in SIMNET/DSI. We include both parallel and
sequential applications but will only consider Java for simulation as
opposed to major commercial use of Java in Web Servers. We include
both optimized Java native compilers for numerical kernels and
interpreted Java "wrappers" for visualization. We also include
research issues on Java language, compilers, interpreters and runtime

The workshop is aimed at getting a broad perspective of community
interests and views, as well as more technical discussions. A similar
Java workshop was held very successfully in Syracuse in 1996
( A mailing list has been
created for people interested in Java for Science and Engineering
Computation. To join, send a message with "subscribe java-for-cse" to

Original submissions are invited in all areas including (but not
restricted to):

              * Java in Simulation
              * Web based Computation Environments in Java
              * Optimized Compilation of Java
              * Just-In-Time vs. Offline Compilation
              * JVM as Compiler Intermediate Representation
              * Java Runtime Systems
              * Java I/O
              * Data Parallel Java
              * Mapping C, Fortran, and C++ to Java
              * Java as User Interface to Simulations
              * Java as Wrapper Technology for Existing Scientific Codes
              * Use of Java Applets to Illustrate Science for Education

Papers should report new research and should not exceed 5000 words
(approximately 10 typeset on 16-point spacing, or 15 typewritten
double-spaced pages). Short papers (less than 3000 words) that
describe existing implementations or work-in-progress, or outline new
problems or important issues are also welcome. All accepted papers
will be presented at the workshop and published in a special issue of
the journal "Concurrency: Practice and Experience".


Electronic submission is preferred. Please e-mail a postscript copy of
your submission or send three hard copies to one of the co-chairs.
Submissions must be received by 5pm (Eastern Time) on April 10, 1997.
Authors will be notified by April 30. Final camera-ready versions are
due by May 15.
