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:
