Welcome to the FOURTH Workshop on Massively Parallel Processing!
The Workshop on Massively Parallel Processing is a forum for the discussion of parallel processing involving hundreds to thousands of processors. Topics range from novel architectures to algorithms to applications.
The Fourth Workshop on Massively Parallel Processing (WMPP'04) builds on the success of the three previous successful workshops, held as part of IPDPS'01, IPDPS'02 and IPDPS'03, respectively. WMPP has picked up momentum and is now pushing the limits of single day format. Technical presentations have come from industry (e.g. IBM), from national laboratories (e.g. UCAR, JPL), and from academic institutions from across the globe. The First and Second workshops featured invited keynote talks by Peter Kogge of Notre Dame and David Bader of the University of New Mexico, respectively. The Third workshop featured an invited keynote talk by Thomas Sterling of Cal Tech and NASA JPL. Following the usual practice at IPDPS, all WMPP papers have been published with the paper abstracts in a hardcopy volume and the complete paper in an accompanying CD-ROM.
As you can see from the schedule below, the workshop has returned to a 10-paper schedule this year, rather than last year's longer schedule. WMPP'04 also features an invited keynote talk by Mootaz Elnozahy, Senior Manager and Master Inventor at IBM Research in Austin Texas.
We hope that you will enjoy the workshop!
