About these proceedings
This volume contains the proceedings of the Fourth Workshop
on Languages andCompilers for Parallel Computing, held in
Santa Clara, California, in August1991. The purpose of the
workshop, held every year since 1988, is to bring together
the leading researchers on parallel programming language
designand compilation techniques for parallel computers.
The papers in this book cover several important topics
including: (1) languages and structures to represent
programs internally in the compiler, (2) techniques to
analyzeand manipulate sequential loops in order to generate
a parallel version, (3)techniques to detect and extract
fine-grain parallelism, (4) scheduling and memory-management
issues in automatically generated parallel programs, (5)
parallel programming language designs, and (6) compilation
of explicitly parallel programs.
Together, the papers give a good overview of the research
projects underway in 1991 in this field.
