Software Tools for Developing Parallel Applications

Although a considerable amount of R&D effort is being expended on software tools for parallel computers, the application developer is often the last to know when a new tool becomes available. In this minisymposium, speakers from the parallel tools community will provide an overview of what's currently available for code development, debugging, performance tuning, and runtime setup/control. The speakers will employ a compare-and-contrast approach to help attendees establish what they should look for in tool features to meet their particular needs. The speakers will also offer suggestions on how to identify sources for trying out or acquiring new parallel tools.
