  • About this book

This volume presents revised versions of the 32 papers accepted for the Seventh Annual Workshop on Languages and Compilers for Parallel Computing, held in Ithaca, NY in August 1994.
The 32 papers presented report on the leading research activities in languages and compilers for parallel computing and thus reflect the state of the art in the field. The volume is organized in sections on fine-grain parallelism, align- ment and distribution, postlinear loop transformation, parallel structures, program analysis, computer communication, automatic parallelization, languages for parallelism, scheduling and program optimization, and program evaluation.
