Parallel programming models, methods and languages

Topic 10

Description

This topic provides a forum for the presentation of the latest research results and practical experience in the development of parallel programs. Advances in algorithmic and programming models, design methods, languages, and interfaces are needed to produce correct, portable parallel software with predictable performance on different parallel and distributed architectures.
The topic emphasises results that improve the process of developing high-performance programs, including high-integrity programs that are scalable with both problem size and complexity. Of particular interest are novel techniques by which parallel software can be assembled from reusable parallel components without compromising efficiency. Related to this is the need for parallel software to adapt, both to available resources and to the problem being solved.
Where appropriate, contributions should demonstrate quantitative performance results in support of their claims, and address applications not adequately handled by well-established approaches.
