                Third Workshop on Languages, Compilers, and Run-Time Systems
                                            for Scalable Computers

  Rensselaer Parallel Software Systems Meeting, Troy, New York, May 22-24, 1995

The third Workshop on Languages, Compilers, and Run-Time Systems for Scalable
Computers will be held at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York
on May 22 - 24, 1995. Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to,
the following:
  * Machine-independent parallel programming languages, compilers and tools;
  * Compiler and run-time communication optimizations;
  * Parallel computations over irregular structures;
  * Support for task and coarse grain parallelism;
  * Optimizations in parallelizing compilers;
  * Experience with applying parallel programming languages and software
        systems to applications,

The format of the workshop will include 30-minute research presentations,
with ample time for discussion, and group sessions that discuss the
challenges and future directions for research in this area. Submissions will
be reviewed by the Program Committee, including Joe Flaherty (Rensselaer),
Ken Kennedy (Rice), Chuck Koelbel (Rice), Piyush Mehrotra (ICASE),
Joel Saltz (Maryland), Bobby Schnabel (Colorado), Balaram Sinharoy (IBM),
