Trends in Languages and Compilers for Parallel Computing

This minisymposium will focus on recent accomplishments and trends in languages and compilers for parallel computing. This area is clearly of great importance in the development of applications because the language, programming paradigm, and compilation techniques have an impact on development costs as well as on the final performance of applications. The speakers in this minisymposium will discuss issues in compiling for parallel computing, including automatic parallelization and compiler techniques for explicitly parallel programs, software engineering for parallel computing and the tools necessary to support program development and maintenance, and how parallel programming languages may evolve given the increasing complexity of the parallel architectures of the future.
