The Workshop on Languages, Compilers, and
Run-time Systems for Scalable Computers (LCR) is a bi-annual gathering
of computer scientists who develop software systems for parallel and
distributed computers. LCR is held in alternating years with the ACM
Symposium on Principles and Practice of Parallel Programming (PPoPP)
and draws from the same community. Attendance is limited to 75
participants. The first three meetings, hosted by ICASE (1990),
Colorado (1992), and RPI (1995), were interesting, collegial, and a
lot of fun.
The LCR community is interested in a broad range of technologies,
with a common goal of developing software systems that enable real
applications. The organization of high end computer systems is
undergoing a dramatic change away from traditional MPPs and towards
shared memory systems, distributed shared memory, and (possibly
heterogeneous) clusters of uniprocessors and multiprocessors. The
theme for this fourth meeting is software support for these emerging
systems. Among the topics of interest to the workshop are:
- Language features
- Communication code generation and optimization
- Communication libraries
- Distributed shared memory libraries
- Distributed object systems
- Resource management systems
- Integration of compiler and runtime systems
- Irregular and dynamic applications
- Performance evaluation
