                           FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS

Main Topics

PVM (Parallel Virtual Machine) and MPI (Message Passing Interface) are
the most frequently used tools for parallel programming according to the

message-passing paradigm. The meeting is dedicated to the latest
developments of PVM and MPI and their applications.

This is the Sixth EuroPVM/MPI meeting of the series, previous ones being

held at

        * University of Rome - Italy (1994),
        * ENS Lyon - France (1995),
        * TU Muenchen, Germany (1996),
        * Institute of Computer Science & ACC CYFRONET, Krakow -Poland
        * University of Liverpool - United Kingdom (1998).

The 6th European PVM/MPI User's Group Meeting will be a forum for the
users and developers of PVM, MPI and other message-passing programming
environments. They will have the opportunity to meet each other, share
ideas and experiences, and meet members of the PVM and MPI teams.

Main topics of the meeting will be:

        * Algorithms using message-passing paradigm
        * Applications in science and engineering based on
        * Latest extensions and improvements to PVM and MPI
        * Evaluation of PVM and MPI
        * Performance of PVM and MPI
        * Tools for PVM and MPI
        * HPF/MPI extensions
        * Implementation issues
