                                      CALL FOR PAPERS FOR THE TECHNICAL SESSION ON
                                Program Analysis Techniques for Advanced Compilers
                                                  for Parallel and Vector Computers

                    International Conference on Parallel and Distributed Processing
                                            Techniques and Applications (PDPTA'96)
                                                                    New Horizons

                                                                August 9-11, 1996
                                                        Sunnyvale, California, USA

The next International Conference on Parallel and Distributed
Processing Techniques and Applications (PDPTA'96) will be held in
Sunnyvale (California) from August 9 through August 11, 1996 (4 days
after the 1996 Olympics.) The last conference (PDPTA'95) had research
contributions from 24 countries. It is hoped the PDPTA'96 will also
have a strong international flavor.


Advances during the past decade in data dependency analysis, loop
restructuring and compilation techniques have established a solid
base, both in academic and commercial arenas, for advanced compiler
techniques for parallel and vector computers. While some of these
techniques are maturing, there is still considerable research
potential in this area. Of particular interest is research to support
both high level (generic) analysis techniques aimed at non-specific
machine architectures as well as more low-level machine-dependent
optimization techniques in an integrated way. The intent of this
session is to collect current thoughts and ideas and, perhaps, to
stimulate further research into this area.

The following topics are of particular interest, although papers dealing
with related or other relevant issues will also be considered.
          - Theoretical models for high level compilation techniques
          - Theoretical models for low level optimization techniques (which
              can be incorporated into higher level compilation techniques)
          - Applications of theoretical models
          - Issues of integration between more general high level techniques
              and low level optimizations
          - Summary, survey or archival issues relating to integration issues
          - Advanced compiler applications
          - Issues relating to the impact of target machine characteristics on
              high level analysis and compilation techniques


Prospective authors are invited to submit three copies of their draft
paper to the session chair, Dr. Brian d'Auriol, (address is given
below) by the due date. E-mail submissions are also accepted. The
length of the Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be limited to 12
pages single spaced. Papers must not have been previously published or
currently submitted for publication elsewhere. Draft papers of 5
pages are due by April 2, 1996.

Please refer to the CFP announcement for further details concerning
paper submission requirements (copies of the announcement can be
obtained from Dr. d'Auriol).


Papers for this special session will be evaluated on the following
criteria: their contribution to the area of research, novelty of
approach, soundness of results and quality of presentation. Both
theoretical and applied research will be considered.
