CALL FOR PAPERS
Special Issue of
The International Journal of Supercomputer Applications
and High Performance Computing
I/O in Parallel Applications
Parallel computers are increasingly being used for applications with
significant I/O requirements. In many such applications, I/O is the
main factor limiting performance and scalability. The International
Journal of Supercomputer Applications and High Performance Computing
will be publishing a special issue on I/O in Parallel Applications.
Papers are solicited that describe the nature of I/O in real
I/O-intensive parallel applications, methods and tools used for I/O,
performance obtained, problems experienced, etc. Of particular
interest are experiences with applications that highlight the
strengths and weaknesses of existing hardware and software support and
user interfaces for parallel I/O.
All submitted papers will be refereed. The papers must be unpublished
and not under consideration for publication elsewhere. All papers must
be submitted electronically by sending the PostScript file by e-mail
Authors will be notified of the publication decision by July 25, 1997.
