Communicating Process Architectures
Communicating Process Architectures 2013, the 35th WoTUG conference on concurrent and parallel programming, took place in August 2013 at Edinburgh Napier University, in Edinburgh, Scotland. For more information on CPA 2013, please see the CPA 2013 pages.

WoTUG provides a forum for the discussion and promotion of concurrency ideas, tools and products in computer science. It organises specialist workshops and annual conferences that address key concurrency issues at all levels of software and hardware granularity. WoTUG aims to progress the leading state of the art in:

An environment for transputer CPU load measurements
In a multiprocessor system an uneven load balancing can usually dramatically reduce the performance of the parallel program running on it Hence it is of paramount importance to be able to estimate the CPU and communication loads of every task before the program is actually executed so that the optimal application partitioning can be found. In this paper the problem of CPU load measurement is tackled, and a measurement environment is illustrated in which the processes to be allocated to the processors in the network are run in quasi-concurrence on a single Transputer. A technique based on active process list manipulation makes it possible to perform a fairly accurate measurement of the CPU activity of the parallel processes in the application using the Transputer internal tinier as a reference clock.
