First Workshop on Massively Parallel Processing (WMPP)

Friday 27 April 2001 at IPDPS'01

Message from the General and Program Chairs

Welcome to the first Workshop on Massively Parallel Processing.

The workshop addresses all areas of massively parallel processing. In organizing this workshop, we recognize that computer solutions to many problems facing modern civilization require a level of computational power that far exceeds current capabilities. Consequently, we desired to solicit papers on research that extends current computational capacity boundaries and gives solutions to currently inaccessible computationally intensive problems, such as some of the grand challenge problems.

General areas of interest include synchronous and asynchronous parallel computation, algorithms and models, systems architecture, hardware, systems software and languages, component technology, and applications. Specific topics of interest include SIMD and MIMD massively parallel systems case studies; teraflop and petaflop system development and applications; intelligent RAM, IRAM, and PIM system development; data parallel and associative computing; case studies and performance analysis of massively parallel systems and applications; resource management for massively parallel applications; domain specific libraries and applications; experience with commercial and experimental massively parallel systems; and systems software and tools for massively parallel computing.

We hope that you will enjoy the selection of manuscripts that are contained in this conference program.
