I think there have been a number of related topics in preceding presentations, so let me sum up the important points in introducing the panelists who are going to give presentations. When we speak about supercomputing today, it seems that we take for granted its use in scientific computations. In doing computation, it is obviously very important that four elements, the hardware, system software, basic algorithm, and application, are well balanced, or in harmony, with one another. This importance, I think, is demonstrated by the fact that the Supercomputing Research and Development Center of the University of Illinois consists of three departments —hardware, software, and applications.
