 Second SISAL Meeting Announcement

                             A N N O U N C E M E N T

                        The Second Sisal Users Conference

                               Hyatt Islandia Hotel

                                   San Diego, CA

                                 October 4-6, 1992

                                   Presented by

                      Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

                                with support from

                          the US Department of Energy

Sisal (Streams and Iterations in a Single-Assignment Language) is a general-
purpose functional language that supports the development of determinate,
machine-independent parallel software. The Sisal project has achieved
significant successes over the past nine years, in many areas of computer
science and parallel computing. Among these are the development of the Sisal
language and the IF1 intermediate dataflow graph representation, the
implementation of a runtime system for parallel execution on conventional
shared memory computers, optimizations for functional languages, the
achievement of fortran-like performance, and the establishment of the Sisal
Scientific Computing Initiative. The latter of these has involved researchers
from many areas of science and engineering in the use of Sisal as an
application programming language. In this meeting we will discuss uses of the
language, the current state of the project, and its future directions.

Who Should Attend?

All Sisal users, implementers, and researchers, and those who are interested
in the Sisal language or functional programming are invited to attend this
meeting. We also welcome those involved in the various other aspects of
parallel computing.

Call for Papers

We invite submissions of extended abstracts of five to ten pages in length by
August 15, 1992. Decisions on acceptance will be made by September 1, 1992.
Full papers will be due at the conference, and will appear in a published
proceedings. Suggested topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

*       Sisal language
*       Sisal implementations
*       Sisal execution platforms
*       Sisal applications
*       Sisal programming tools
*       Research involving IF1
*       Functional languages
*       Functional programming
*       Dataflow computing
*       Hybrid languages (e.g. object-oriented and functional combinations)

Cost

The cost of this conference is $150, and includes lunches both days and a
reception the first night. Guest lunch tickets are available.

Accomodations

Lodging is available at a special rate of $70 (US) per room, single or double
occupancy, at the Hyatt Islandia Hotel, phone (800) 233-1234. ATTENDEES MUST
ARRANGE THEIR OWN LODGING.

Transportation

Shuttle service is available between the San Diego airport and the Hyatt
Islandia Hotel.
