A portable high-performance program cannot be oblivious to the machine on which it runs. And yet unless software portability increases, parallel processing will remain too expensive to deliver its performance promises. Portability of software and performance of hardware and communication are the significant indicators of the success of parallelism in computing. And these two indicators are often in conflict. Bringing together in one volume different approaches to solving this tension will give insights to developers on both sides of the software/hardware divide, and provides a critical debate for those measuring, modelling and investing in high performance technology.
