10th International Conference on Parallel Architectures and Compilation
Techniques (PACT'01), was held in the Barcelona Hilton Hotel. PACT'01
offered a high quality technical program, including three outstanding
keynote speakers (Randall D. Isaac, IBM; Justin Rattner and Joel Emer,
both from Intel), 26 cutting-edge research papers, and a special session
on Work in Progress. It also included workshops on OpenMP, Binary Translation,
Memory Access Decoupled Architectures, Compilers and Operating Systems
for Low Power, and Ubiquitous Computing. A tutorial on the IBM Research
Jalapeño JVM was also included in the technical program.
delegates attended PACT'01 and its workshops. Out of this number, 146
registered for the main event and 65 delegates registered for "workshops/tutorials
only". I would like to thank all delegates for traveling to lovely
Barcelona. I hope that the city was able to transmit the charm of its
people, monuments and museums.
behalf of the Organizing Committee of PACT'01, I would like to thank
to everybody who collaborated in its making. The
conference received some funding for student travel grants through
corporate sponsorship from IBM Research, Intel, HP Labs and Microsoft
Research. The hosting university, Universitat Politecnica
de Catalunya (UPC), public institutions (CICYT and CIRIT) and corporations
(Compaq Spain, IBM Spain and SGI Spain) provided
funds to sponsor the activities of the conference. We gratefully thank
them for their generous support.
Valero, PACT'01 General Chair
