  abstract= "Load balancing in MIMD message-passing parallel computers is
     essential to make efficient use of the system resources and
     reduce the program runtime. For parallel computers that also
     provide topological \^{}configurability, it is necessary for
     the load balancing strategy to not only find an optimum
     distribution of tasks to processors, but also to determine
     the best-suited interconnection pattern for the processors.
     In this paper, we present an off-line tool, LiBRA, that will
     assist in automating the process of load balancing. The user
     specifies his problem in terms of a computation graph and
     the machine characteristics. LiBRA uses simulated annealing
     with an automatic annealing schedule to generate the optimal
