Look-ahead dynamic inter-processor connection reconfiguration is a multi-processor architectural model, which has been proposed to eliminate connection reconfiguration time overheads. It consists in preparing link connections in advance in parallel with program execution. An application program is partitioned into sections, which are executed using redundant communication resources. Parallel program scheduling in such a kind of environment incorporates graph partitioning problem. The paper presents a scheduling algorithm for look-ahead reconfigurable multi-processor systems. It is based on list scheduling and utilizes a fast section clustering heuristic for graph partitioning. The experimental results are compared with results of a genetic graph partitioning algorithm.
