HPF international Workshop: Experiences and Progress

Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute
Kansai Research Establishment
(Kansai Science City, JAPAN)
May 16, 2002

(part of the 4th International Symposium on High Performance Computing ISHPC-IV)

Organized by  HPF Promoting Consortium (HPFPC)

High Performance Fortran is a data parallel language that makes it possible to program efficient parallel codes for distributed memory parallel systems with minimal effort. Last year, several vendors started to provide long-awaited compilers that can be used for real parallelization works with the help of the JAHPF efforts. In the HUG2000 meeting held in Tokyo in October 2000, many successful results on the HPF programming were presented.

This workshop, HiWEP2002, addresses recent progress in HPF software and experiences on programming in HPF and other distributed-parallel programming paradigms.

HiWEP2002 will be held as a part of the 4th International Symposium on High Performance Computing (ISHPC2002) in May 15-17, 2002.

Int. Workshop on OpenMP: Experiences and Implementations (WOMPEI) will also be held as a part of ISHPC2002 in May 15.

Final program
