Front Cover
Springer Science & Business Media, Aug 27, 1997 - Computers - 298 pages
This book constitutes the strictly refereed post-workshop proceedings of the 1997 IPPS Workshop on Job Scheduling Strategies for Parallel Processing held in Geneva, Switzerland, in April 1997, as a satelite meeting of the IEEE/CS International Parallel Processing Symposium.
The 12 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and revised for inclusion in the book. Also included is a detailed introduction surveying the state of the art in the area. Among the topics covered are processor allocation, parallel scheduling, massively parallel processing, shared-memory architectures, gang scheduling, etc.
