HeteroPar’2010: Eighth International Workshop on Algorithms, Models and Tools for Parallel Computing on Heterogeneous Platforms

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 6586)


Networks of computers are now the most common and available parallel architecture. Unlike dedicated parallel computer systems, networks are inherently heterogeneous. They consist of diverse computers of different performance interconnected via heterogeneous network equipment providing communication links with different latencies and bandwidths. Traditional parallel algorithms and tools are aimed at homogeneous multiprocessors and cannot be efficiently used for parallel computing on heterogeneous networks. New ideas, dedicated algorithms and tools are needed to efficiently use this new type of parallel architecture.
