                                                CALL FOR PAPERS

                                                  Second Annual
                  April 26, 1994, Hotel Regina, Cancun, Mexico

sponsored by: to be held in conjunction with:
IEEE Technical Committee on International Parallel Processing
Parallel Processing Symposium (IPPS '94)

SYMPOSIUM: The eighth annual International Parallel Processing
Symposium (IPPS '94) is sponsored by IEEE Computer Society and will
be held in cooperation with ACM SIGARCH. At IPPS '94 engineers and
scientists from around the world will present the latest research
findings in all aspects of parallel and distributed processing.

WORKSHOP: The workshop will be held on the first day of the
symposium (April 26, 1994). The workshop will focus on the
increasingly important I/O bottleneck facing parallel and distributed
computer systems. Applications affected by this bottleneck include
Grand Challenge problems as well as newer application areas such as
multimedia information systems and visualization. Comprehensive
solutions to the parallel I/O bottleneck will include not only
innovative hardware and architectural designs, but also new
theoretical, operating systems, compilers and applications
approaches. As for the first workshop held in 1993, this workshop
will aim to bring together researchers in order to compare and
integrate theoretical and experimental approaches and solutions.

Papers are invited demonstrating original unpublished research.
Topics of interest include:

        I/O-intensive applications
        Theory of I/O complexity
        I/O subsystem architecture
        Compiler support for parallel I/O
        Operating system support for parallel I/O
        Scheduling and resource allocation
        Concurrent and parallel file systems
        Performance modeling and evaluation

REGISTRATION: The workshop is free with registration for IPPS '94.

SUBMITTING PAPERS: All papers will be reviewed. The first page must
include a 100-word abstract and the name, address, telephone number
and electronic mail address of the author to whom correspondence is
to be sent. The manuscript should be at most 20 pages long
(including figures and references). Papers will be collected into a
proceedings and distributed at the workshop.

Send six copies of the paper to:
        John Werth
        Dept of Computer Sciences
        Univ of Texas at Austin
        Taylor Hall Rm. 2.122
