              (Tentative Publication Date: January 1995)

Due to fundamental physical limitations on processing speeds of
sequential computers, the future-generation high performance
computing environment will eventually rely entirely on exploiting
the inherent parallelism in problems and implementing their
solutions on realistic parallel machines.  Just as the processing
speeds of chips are approaching their physical limits, the need
for faster computations is increasing at an even faster rate.
For example, ten years ago there was virtually no general-purpose
parallel computer available commercially. Now there are several
machines, some of which have received wide acceptance due to
reasonable cost and attractive performance. The purpose of this
special issue is to focus on the desgin and analysis of efficient
parallel algorithms and their performance on different parallel
architectures. We expect to have a good blend of theory and practice.
In addition to theoretical papers on parallel algorithms, case studies
and experience reports on applications of these algorithms in real-life
problems are especially welcome. Example topics include, but are not
limited to, the following:

 o  Parallel Algorithms and Applications.
 o  Machine Models and Architectures.
 o  Communication, Synchronization and Scheduling.
 o  Mapping Algorithms on Architectures.
 o  Performance Evaluation of Multiprocessor Systems.
 o  Parallel Data Structures.
 o  Parallel Programming and Software Tools.
