From C++ to Java: Object Oriented Methods in Parallel Processing

The speakers in this minisymposium will describe four different approaches for using object-oriented technology in parallel scientific applications. The first speaker will discuss a data parallel class library for the design of large-scale numerical simulations such as flow and particle simulations. The second speaker will describe some basic extensions to the C++ language that have been proposed as part of the High Performance C++ (HPC++) project. The third speaker will outline the design of a parallel, distributed version of the C++ standard template library and describe how scientific applications can be built using this "generic programming" style. Finally, the fourth speaker will describe new directions and opportunities in parallel scientific programming that are presented by the programming language Java and the World Wide Web.
