Advances in parallel computing; v.19


The editors (of the U. of Houston, US; Grand Equipement National de Calcul Intensif, France; TU Clausthal, Germany; Philips Research, the Netherlands; and Institut National de Recheche en Informatique et en Automatique, France) present 85 selected and refereed papers from the international Parallel Computing conference held at the Ecole Normale Supereure in France in September of 2009. The papers address new hardware concepts, associated software development issues, and applications for high speed parallel systems. Two invited talks are presented on future architectures in exascale computing and on security and scalability for multi-cores. The remaining papers are presented in sections on numerical algorithms, bio-informatics, image processing and visualization, GRID and cloud computing, programming, GPU and cell programming, compilers and tools, parallel input/output, communication runtime, benchmark and performance tuning, fault tolerance, adaptive parallel computing, DEISA (the Distributed European Infrastructure for Supercomputing Applications, parallel computing with field-programmable gate arrays, parallel programming tools for multi-core architectures, and programming heterogeneous architectures.
