Abstract:

This paper outlines the beginning of a collaborative research effort whose overall goal is the development of an effective parallel programming environment called ParLance, consisting of a para-functional language, highly-optimizing compiler, parallel evaluation kernel, and interactive support for parallel program development. ParLance is intended to be relatively machine independent, with implementations planned for both a shared memory ENCORE MultiMax and a distributed-memory INTEL iPSC multiprocessor. Other machines to be considered include the Connection Machine and the WARP at CMU.
