HLPP2001: International Workshop on
High-level Parallel Programming and Applications

26-27 March 2001, Université d'Orléans, France

Château de la Source


Many applications of computing require performance levels attainable only on parallel architectures. Such systems are now readily available as their price/performance ratio continues to improve. Despite this, corresponding software has not developed to the same levels of capability, price, and flexibility as those of sequential software. There are deep technical reasons for this, which research has been addressing for two decades.

Sequential programming has long benefited from high-level programming techniques and tools that have made today's immense range of software economically viable. Research into high-level parallel programming is producing methods and tools that improve the price/performance ratio of parallel software, and broaden the range of target applications.
