Call for Papers
In cooperation with
Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA, USA, May 28-30, 1998
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. Attendance is limited to 75 participants. 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, LCR98, is software support for these emerging systems. Among the topics of interest to the workshop are:
Paper format: 6-page (maximum) abstract. Shorter entries are welcome. Please include an email address, phone number, and fax number for the contact author. Papers can be submitted via email or postal mail; email submissions are preferred.
Electronic submission: Send one postscript file to the program chair (David O'Hallaron) at email@example.com no later than 5:00 pm EST on Feb 20, 1998. To minimize printing problems with your submission please ensure that your postscript file can be previewed by ghostview. Contact the program chair at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need any help.
Postal submission: Send three copies of the 6-page abstract to the Program Chair at the following address so that it ARRIVES by Feb 20, 1998:David O'Hallaron
An informal proceedings consisting of the 6-page abstracts will be distributed at the conference. Authors of accepted papers will submit full versions of their papers after the Workshop. The proceedings will be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Each participant will receive a copy of the proceedings.
