This book presents the thoroughly refereed post-workshop proceedings of the 9th International Workshop on Languages and Compilers for Parallel Computing, LCPC'96, held in San Jose, California, in August 1996.
The book contains 35 carefully revised full papers together with nine poster presentations. The papers are organized in topical sections on automatic data distribution and locality enhancement, program analysis, compiler algorithms for fine-grain parallelism, instruction scheduling and register allocation, parallelizing compilers, communication optimization, compiling HPF, and run-time control of parallelism.
