Parallel Computation: Practical Implementation of Algorithms and Machinesby Peter A. Gloor, Fillia Makedon, James W. Matthews
This revolutionary interactive CD-ROM utilizes multimedia software on a Macintosh platform and has been devised to act as an alternative to the traditional practice of publishing proceedings on paper. The purpose of Dartmouth's Institute for Advanced Graduate Studies is to strengthen the interaction between the theoretical and practical communities by acting both as a forum and as a working environment to stimulate new applications of parallel computation. The 1992 DAGS Symposium addressed "Issues and Obstacles in the Practical Implementation of Parallel Algorithms and the Use of Parallel Machines," with the focus on problems that arise in parallel scientific computing. This CD-ROM captures the lectures and papers from that meeting. The 16-page booklet packaged with the CD describes how to use the disc, including how to maneuver through the talks and how to use the software to annotate the papers. For those viewers interested in capturing their next conference, workshop, or meeting in this format, a HyperCard stack is included on the CD that explains how this project was produced.
