NSF Workshop on Research Directions in the Principles of Parallel Computation
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA
June 28, 2012
This workshop will bring together researchers from academia and
industry to discuss key research challenges in the foundations of
parallel computing, and research directions to possibly address these
challenges. The workshop will address several issues described in
Computing Infrastructure Strategic Plan including, but not limited
to, computational models, programming languages, rethinking the
canonical computing "stack", and new algorithmic paradigms.
The workshop is sponsored by NSF.
The workshop will take place immediately following the

We will be sharing the same venue on the Carnegie Mellon Campus.
