PRELIMINARY ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS
_____________________________________________
WORKSHOP ON
PARALLEL ALGORITHMS FOR IRREGULARLY STRUCTURED PROBLEMS
_______________________________________________________
Lyon, September 4--6, 1995
Efficient parallel solutions have been found to many problems. Some of
these solutions can be automatically obtained from sequential programs
using compilers. However, there still exist a large class of problems,
known as irregularly structured problems, that lack efficient solutions.
The workshop on Parallel Algorithms for Irregularly Structured Problems
- IRREGULAR 95 - is the second in the series, started in Geneva in 1994,
that addresses issues related to deriving efficient solutions to
irregularly structured problems. It will be held at the Ecole Normale
Supirieure de Lyon, France, on September 4--6, 1995.
Scope : IRREGULAR 95 aims at fostering the cooperation among
practitioners and theoreticians of the field. Papers for oral
presentation are solicited in all research areas related to the
parallelism of irregular problems, as listed below.
Topics : (non exhaustive) approximated and randomized methods, automatic
synthesis, branch and bound, combinatorial optimization, compiling,
computer vision, load balancing, parallel data structures, scheduling
and mapping, sparse matrix and symbolic computation.
Publication : Proceedings will be published by an international
publisher and will be available at the workshop. Official languages are
English and French.
Submission guidelines : To submit a contribution, send an extended
abstract describing original research in no more than 15 pages to
IRREGULAR 95

Papers simultaneously submitted to other conferences with published
proceedings will not be considered. Contributions must be in Lyon no
later than April 7, 1995.
