DIMACS Workshop on Organizing and Moving Data in Parallel Computers
January 26-28, 1994
Princeton University, Princeton, NJ
Presented under the auspices of the Special Year on Massively Parallel Computing

Data organization and the minimization of unnecessary data movement are two central issues
in computer science. These issues become all the more important in the context of parallel
computation, since processors in a parallel computer must frequently exchange program data
as well as coordination information. On all existing machines, as well as those deemed feasible
for the near future, communication is expensive, and minimizing communication is critical to
achieving high performance.
Subject areas covered will include routing, sorting, hierarchical memory, cache
coherence, and I/0 issues in parallel computers. The workshop will provide an opportunity for
architects, language and operating systems designers, and theoreticians to discuss recent and
forthcoming advances on these issues in massively parallel computers.
