Papers from the October 1996 symposium combine perspectives on architecture applications and systems, with special focus on future systems concepts, especially petaflops computing. Includes sections on scheduling and routing, applications and algorithms, petaflops computing and point design studies, SIMD, I/O techniques, memory management, synchronization, networks, and performance analysis. Specific subjects include a quasi-barrier technique to improve performance of an irregular application, hardware-controlled prefeching in directory-based cache coherent systems, and point designs for 100 TF computers using PIM technologies.
