The International Workshop on Parallel C++ (IWPC++), Kanazawa, Ishikawa Prefecture, Japan

Abstract

In March of 1996 in Kanazawa (Ishikawa Prefecture), Japan, the International Workshop on Parallel C++ (IWPC++) was held to discuss the state of the art in parallel and distributed C++ technologies and future direction to high performance computing. This meeting, as part of the International Symposium on Object Technologies for Advanced Software held at the Japan Advanced Institute for Science and Technology (JAIST), was sponsored by the Real World Computing Partnership (RWC) and the Japan Society for Software Science and Technology, in cooperation with ACM SIGPLAN/SIGSOFT, IEEE Computer Society, IEICE and IPSJ. The workshop brought together a small number of leading researchers invited from around the world including Europe, United States and Japan, to investigate and critique the current status of object oriented methods in parallel scientific computing. Topics included application development, software libraries, language and runtime systems, as well as interoperability. As our community gradually makes the paradigm shift toward abstraction in application development for applied computing, events such as the Kanazawa meetings increase the awareness of the current status of object technology in scientific programming.
