Abstract : This grant funded the proceedings of the 7th Heterogeneous Computing Workshop (HCW 98), which was held on March 30, 1998. HCW 98 was part of the first merged symposium of the 12th International Parallel Processing Symposium and the 9th Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Processing (IPPS/SPDP 1998), which was sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Parallel Processing and held in cooperation with ACM SIGARCH. Heterogeneous computing systems range from diverse elements within a single computer to coordinated, geographically distributed machines with different architectures. A heterogeneous computing system provides a variety of capabilities that can be orchestrated to execute multiple tasks with varied computational requirements. Applications in these environments achieve performance by exploiting the affinity of different tasks to different computational platforms or paradigms, while considering the overhead of inter-task communication and the coordination of distinct data sources and/or administrative domains. Topics representative of those in the proceedings include: network profiling, configuration tools, scheduling tools, analytic benchmarking, programming paradigms, problem mapping, processor assignment and scheduling, fault tolerance, programming tools, processor selection criteria, and compiler assistance.
