This book contains papers selected for presentation at the Sixth Annual Workshop on Languages and Compilers for Parallel Computing. The workshop washosted by the Oregon Graduate Institute of Science and Technology. All the major research efforts in parallel languages and compilers are represented in this workshop series. The 36 papers in the volume aregrouped under nine headings: dynamic data structures, parallel languages, High Performance Fortran, loop transformation, logic and dataflow language implementations, fine grain parallelism, scalar analysis, parallelizing compilers, and analysis of parallel programs. The book represents a valuable snapshot of the state of research in the field in 1993.
