Overview

This volume contains papers presented at the DIMACS workshop on Specification of Parallel Algorithms, held in May 1994 at Princeton University. The goal of the workshop was to bring together some of the best researchers in parallel languages, algorithms, and systems to present and discuss recent developments in their areas of expertise. Among the topics discussed were new specification techniques for concurrent and distributed systems, behavioral and operational specification techniques, new parallel language and system abstractions, novel concurrent architectures and systems, large-scale parallel systems, specification tools and environments, and proof techniques for concurrent systems.
