scientists from around the world to present their latest research
findings in the field. In addition to technical sessions of submitted
paper presentations, IPPS '97 will offer workshops, tutorials, an
industrial track, and commercial exhibits.

Our University of Geneva hosts are making arrangements
for on-campus housing as well as specially priced nearby hotel
accommodations. Also through the University, IPPS will be able
to provide daily luncheon in addition to the usual breaks and
refreshments. Full details will be available in the Advance

Also in 1997, PARCON, the one-day Symposium on New
Directions in Parallel and Concurrent Computing, will co-locate
with IPPS. To accommodate their inclusion, workshops &
tutorials will be held the first and last days, papers will be
presented in technical sessions on the second and third days,
and PARCON will be presented on the fourth day.

Send a 1 page proposal to one of the Symposium Co-Chairs by
30 August 1996. Workshops already planned for 1997 include:

* Heterogeneous Computing Workshop
    Contact: Debbie Hensgen, Naval Post Graduate School

* Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Real-Time Systems
    Contacts: Lonnie R. Welch, New Jersey Institute of
    Technology (

    Imrich Chlamtac, Boston University (

* Workshop on High-Level Programming Models and Supportive
    Environments (HIPS)
    Contact: Rudolf G. Hackenberg, Technical University, Munich

* Workshop on Randomized Parallel Computation
    Contact: S. Rajasekaran, University of Florida


Proposals are solicited for organizing full or half-day tutorials
to be held on the first day of the symposium. Interested
individuals should submit a proposal by 31 October 1996 to the
Tutorials Chair Tao Yang. It should include a brief description of
intended audience, a lecture outline and a vita(e) for lecturer(s).


The Industrial Track consists of original technical papers
from various companies. Topics may include descriptions,
comparisons, or evaluations of the design, implementation, or
performance of an existing commercial system. Commercial
Exhibits allow vendors to display their products in an informal
walk-up-and-talk setting. For details and to make sure your
company is on the IPPS mailing list, contact the appropriate Co-
Chair (John Antonio in the USA and Helmar Burkhart in
Switzerland) by 31 October 1996.

                                                                  PARCON 97

Symposium on New Directions in
Parallel and Concurrent Computing
(Presented in cooperation with IPPS '97)
4 April 1997

PARCON was established in 1992 as a forum for leading scientists
to speak about the issues and challenges at the frontier of this
increasingly important field. It has come to serve as a platform
from which experts in both academia and industry may present
their views on the current state-of-the-art as well as outline new
ideas on the horizon.

As envisioned by its founding co-chairs Zvi M. Kedem & Krishna V.
Palem, a major objective of PARCON is to promote the synergy
between theoretical and practical aspects and at the same time to
span the gamut of topics driving the field. These topics include:
algorithmics, programming models and languages, compilers,
architecture, communication and networking.

In the 1992 and 1994 PARCON symposia, these objectives were
met through the participation of: Mani Chandy, John Hennessy,
Richard Karp, Ken Kennedy, Tom Leighton, Charles Leiserson,
Michael Rabin, Charles Seitz, Marc Snir, and Leslie Valiant.

PARCON will continue to draw upon its tradition of excellence and
in 1997 will co-locate with IPPS in Geneva. The one day PARCON
event will follow three days of IPPS workshops, tutorials, and
technical sessions. This "preparation" will make PARCON a grand
finale of the week in Geneva.

As previously, PARCON will consist of lectures by invited speakers
to be followed by a panel discussion on the topic of Building
Parallel Machines: Experiences and Lessons Learned. Details of
PARCON 97 will be available as part of the IPPS '97 Advance Program
and other announcements and ads as well as on the IPPS '97
Web page. Attendance at PARCON (on the 4th day of IPPS) is
included in the IPPS '97 registration.
