Architectures, Languages and Patterns for Parallel and
Call For Papers
This conference addresses the theory, technology and applications of parallel and distributed computing. At the application level, the emphasis will be on reporting how the theory and technology was used -- design patterns leading to simple, secure and efficient systems. Experiences on the use of Java, Limbo and occam / Handel (to design and implement both hardware and software) will be particularly relevant.
The conference also has a tutorial program aimed at anyone responsible for teaching in the above areas. With the growing number of Universities switching to Java as the prime language for imperative programming, this meeting is especially timely.
WoTUG 21 is the 21st Technical Conference of the World occam and Transputer
User Group - a world-wide network of scientists and engineers engaged in
the theory, implementation and application of parallel and distributed
systems. Long outgrown its original focus on occam and the Transputer,
WoTUG's coming of age reflects a growing maturity in analysis, modeling
and solutions of real-world problems through the use of safe and simple
multi-threaded and distributed techniques. Traditionally, these techniques
have not been described as safe and simple, but it is these attributes
that have always driven the technical developments reported and discussed
at the WoTUG meetings. Come along, but be prepared to talk all
through the night...
