This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-conference proceedings of the 29th International Workshop on Languages and Compilers for Parallel Computing, LCPC 2016, held in Rochester, NY, USA, in September 2016. The 20 revised full papers presented together with 4 short papers were carefully reviewed. The papers are organized in topical sections on large scale parallelism, resilience and persistence, compiler analysis and optimization, dynamic computation and languages, GPUs and private memory, and runt-time and performance analysis.
The second half of the 1970s was marked with impressive advances in array/vector architectures and vectorization techniques and compilers. This progress continued with a particular focus on vector machines until the middle of the 1980s. The major ity of supercomputers during this period were register-to-register (Cray 1) or memory-to-memory (CDC Cyber 205) vector (pipelined) machines. However, the increasing demand for higher computational rates lead naturally to parallel comput ers and software. Through the replication of autonomous processors in a coordinated system, one can skip over performance barriers due technology limitations. In princi ple, parallelism offers unlimited performance potential. Nevertheless, it is very difficult to realize this performance potential in practice. So far, we have seen only the tip of the iceberg called "parallel machines and parallel programming". Parallel programming in particular is a rapidly evolving art and, at present, highly empirical. In this book we discuss several aspects of parallel programming and parallelizing compilers. Instead of trying to develop parallel programming methodologies and paradigms, we often focus on more advanced topics assuming that the reader has an adequate background in parallel processing. The book is organized in three main parts. In the first part (Chapters 1 and 2) we set the stage and focus on program transformations and parallelizing compilers. The second part of this book (Chapters 3 and 4) discusses scheduling for parallel machines from the practical point of view macro and microtasking and supporting environments). Finally, the last part (Le.
This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-conference proceedings of the 26th International Workshop on Languages and Compilers for Parallel Computing, LCPC 2013, held in Tokyo, Japan, in September 2012. The 20 revised full papers and two keynote papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 44 submissions. The focus of the papers is on following topics: parallel programming models, compiler analysis techniques, parallel data structures and parallel execution models, to GPGPU and other heterogeneous execution models, code generation for power efficiency on mobile platforms, and debugging and fault tolerance for parallel systems.
The articles in this volume are revised versions of the best papers presented at the Fifth Workshop on Languages and Compilers for Parallel Computing, held at Yale University, August 1992. The previous workshops in this series were held in Santa Clara (1991), Irvine (1990), Urbana (1989), and Ithaca (1988). As in previous years, a reasonable cross-section of some of the best work in the field is presented. The volume contains 35 papers, mostly by authors working in the U.S. or Canada but also by authors from Austria, Denmark, Israel, Italy, Japan and the U.K.
Author: Seventh International Workshop on Languages and Comp
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
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.
This volume contains the papers presented at the 13th International Workshop on Languages and Compilers for Parallel Computing. It also contains extended abstracts of submissions that were accepted as posters. The workshop was held at the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, New York. As in previous years, the workshop focused on issues in optimizing compilers, languages, and software environments for high performance computing. This continues a trend in which languages, compilers, and software environments for high performance computing, and not strictly parallel computing, has been the organizing topic. As in past years, participants came from Asia, North America, and Europe. This workshop re?ected the work of many people. In particular, the members of the steering committee, David Padua, Alex Nicolau, Utpal Banerjee, and David Gelernter, have been instrumental in maintaining the focus and quality of the workshop since it was ?rst held in 1988 in Urbana-Champaign. The assistance of the other members of the program committee – Larry Carter, Sid Chatterjee, Jeanne Ferrante, Jans Prins, Bill Pugh, and Chau-wen Tseng – was crucial. The infrastructure at the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center provided trouble-free logistical support. The IBM T. J. Watson Research Center also provided ?nancial support by underwriting much of the expense of the workshop. Appreciation must also be extended to Marc Snir and Pratap Pattnaik of the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center for their support.
This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-proceedings of the 16th International Workshop on Languages and Compilers for Parallel Computing, LCPC 2003, held in College Station, Texas, USA, in October 2003. The 35 revised full papers presented were selected from 48 submissions during two rounds of reviewing and improvement upon presentation at the workshop. The papers are organized in topical sections on adaptive optimization, data locality, parallel languages, high-level transformations, embedded systems, distributed systems software, low-level transformations, compiling for novel architectures, and optimization infrastructure.

The conference covers all aspects of languages, compiler techniques, run-time environments, and compiler-related performance evaluation for parallel and high-performance computing. The scope of the workshop encompasses foundational results, as well as practical experience reports and bold new ideas for future systems.

In August 1999, the Twelfth Workshop on Languages and Compilers for P- allel Computing (LCPC) was hosted by the Hierarchical Tiling Research group from the Computer Science and Engineering Department at the University of California San Diego (UCSD). The workshop is an annual international forum for leading research groups to present their current research activities and the latest results. It has also been a place for researchers and practitioners to - teract closely and exchange ideas about future directions. Among the topics of interest to the workshop are language features, code generation, debugging, - timization, communication and distributed shared memory libraries, distributed object systems, resource management systems, integration of compiler and r- time systems, irregular and dynamic applications, and performance evaluation. In 1999, the workshop was held at the International Relations/Paci c Studies Auditorium and the San Diego Supercomputer Center at UCSD. Seventy-seven researchers from Australia, England, France, Germany, Korea, Spain, and the United States attended the workshop, an increase of over 50% from 1998.
