Frontiers '95 continues a series of meetings on the design, development,
and use of massively parallel computing systems, scalable to 1,000 or more
processors. The program of formal and interactive presentations, panel
discussions, tutorials, workshops, and exhibits will help create a dynamic
forum for researchers and practitioners. Reports of near-term practical
results as well as those having long-term implications are encouraged.


Submission of original research papers concerning any aspects of the
design, analysis, development, and/or use of massively parallel computers
are solicited. Papers that evaluate the use of high performance software
and hardware in solving problems with extremely demanding computational or
I/O requirements are of particular interest. Systems software researchers
and developers are encouraged to include a description of results on
applications codes or computational templates derived from applications
codes. Papers submitted by applications scientists should explore the
computational challenges posed by their application and outline the
progress they have made in dealing with these challenges. A broad range
of applications areas are targeted, including computational physics,
biology, chemistry, material sciences, fluid, and plasma dynamics,
environmental and earth sciences, and artificial intelligence.

Of equal interest are papers describing research related to innovative
algorithms, architectures, and computational models for highly scalable
systems. This includes hardware and software strategies and methods for
managing parallel resources and concurrent activities. Papers describing
evaluation, modelling, and analysis techniques that examine trade-offs for
assessing alternative parallel structures are also of interest. This may
include measurement methodologies and tools employed on current generation
scalable parallel processing systems.

Researchers can arrange to present their results either as a formal
presentation or as a research exhibit in which the use of the researcher's
software can be demonstrated interactively. A number of color Sparc and
Silicon Graphics workstations will be made available to researchers who
would like an opportunity to present their results in the form of a
research exhibit. Researchers who wish to give either a formal
presentation or an interactive demonstration should submit a paper no
longer than 10 pages in length by July 18, 1994.

Each corresponding author is requested to include in a cover letter the
following information (1) complete postal address; (2) electronic mail
address; (3) phone number; (4) fax number; (5) an indication of whether a
formal presentation or research exhibit is desired; (6) a statement that
the manuscript is unpublished and is not under review for another

Please submit SIX (6) copies of the paper, in English, to

                Program Chair
                Frontiers '95
                University of Maryland
                College Park, MD 20742-3251

so that they arrive by July 18, 1994. The text should be restricted to
TEN double-spaced 8.5 by 11 inch pages. References, figures, tables, etc.
may be included in addition to the ten pages of text. Submissions will be
acknowledged promptly by electronic mail and decisions sent by September
12, 1994. Camera-ready copy for the proceedings will be due October 31,


The technical exhibit area provides an opportunity for commercial vendors
and/or other organizations to present their products and technology
directly to leading researchers, to establish avenues for future
collaboration, or simply increase their product visibility in this cutting
edge market. Exhibits will be available to attendees during the middle
two days of the symposium and vendors will be able to present live
demonstrations (within certain logistical constraints). Interested
vendors and institutions should contact the exhibits chair, Jerry Sobieski


Topical workshops and tutorials will be held on February 6, 1995.
Proposals are solicited for either half day or full day tutorials and
workshops. Researchers interested in giving a tutorial or organizing a
workshop should send a proposal by July 18, 1994 to the appropriate
Tutorial or Workshop Chair at the above address.


The symposium will feature a poster session that will make it possible for
researchers and practitioners to share their parallel machine experiences
in an informal setting. Those interested in exhibiting their work in the
poster session should submit a one page abstract to the program committee
c/o Johanna Weinstein, at the above address by November 1, 1994.
