The CRPC will be a major presence at Supercomputing '94 (SC '94), the seventh in a series of highly attended conferences in high-performance computing. The center will host a large booth on the conference floor featuring demonstrations, posters, and videos on the latest developments in parallel computing programming tools, compilers, numerical methods, and applications. CRPC researchers will also play a role in the technical program, giving presentations and taking part in panels, tutorials, roundtable discussions, technical papers, posters, and the Heterogeneous Computing Challenge. In addition, several CRPC sites, including Caltech and Argonne, Oak Ridge, and Los Alamos National Laboratories, will host exhibits featuring CRPC projects.

Themes for the CRPC booth will be standards and knowledge transfer. Center efforts have helped to develop software technologies used across a wide range of parallel machines, including standard programming languages and interfaces such as HPF, D System, Fortran M,

CC++, MPI, and PVM. "With constant changes and improvements in parallel computing hardware," said CRPC director Ken Kennedy, "we have always believed that to make parallel computing useful, you have to make software tools portable between machines. Users should not have to worry about 'reinventing the wheel' for every new machine they use." With the software part of the parallel computing problem continuing to take a bigger focus, CRPC research is more relevant than it has ever been.

Knowledge transfer, the other cornerstone of CRPC's approach to parallel computing, is just as important. Recent efforts, such as the CRPC's National Software Exchange and workshops to train supercomputing center staff in parallel programming tools, are helping to leverage the center's resources to achieve maximum impact within the user community. Other efforts such as InfoMall and several industry consortiums are helping CRPC researchers keep in contact with the ever-growing pool of users who are finding new ways to use parallel computing.
