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 from the morning of Monday, May 22 through noon on
Wednesday, May 24, 1995. The topics that the workshop will address include:
multithreading in parallel computation, communication optimization, dependency
analysis and loop parallelism, adaptive and irregular computation, data
distribution, load balancing, scalability, and compiler support.

To preserve the workshop nature of the meeting, attendance is being limited
to approximately 100 persons. Currently there are a small number of
places left. Anyone still wishing to register is encouraged to do so
as soon as possible by filling out the registration form below.

The program for the workshop is given below. Each 80 minute session
will consist of two approximately 25-30 minute talks, with the
remainder of the time for discussion.
