Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
This work contains revised and expanded versions of papers presented at the Second International Workshop on Constructive Methods for Parallel Programming, held in July 2000 in Ponte de Lima, Portugal. Specific subjects examined include parallelizing irregular and Pointer-based computations automatically, data placement optimization for data-parallel component composition, skeleton implementations based on generic data distributions, and development and verification of parallel algorithms in the data field model. Other subjects include algebraic rules for reasoning about BSP programs, BSP constraint programming, replicated works in Eden, and functional bulk synchronous parallel programming using the BSMLlib library.
