  abstract= "In recent years there has been a trend towards using
     standard workstation components to construct parallel
     computers, due to the enourmous costs involved in designing
     and manufacturing special-purpose hardware. In particular we
     can expect to see a large population of SMP clusters
     emerging in the next few years. These are local-area
     networks of workstations, each containing around four
     parallel processors with a single shared memory. To use
     such machines effectively will be a major headache for
     programmers and compiler-writers. Here we consider how
     well-suited the BSP model might be for these two-tier
     architectures, and whether it would be useful to extend the
     model to allow for non-uniform communication behaviour. "
