WoTUG - The place for concurrent processes

Annual Conference: Communicating Process Architectures

Communicating Process Architectures 2017, the 39th. WoTUG conference on concurrent and parallel systems, takes place from Sunday August 20th. to Wednesday August 23rd. 2017 and is hosted by Kevin Vella, Head of Department in Computer Science at the University of Malta. Conference sessions will take place at the Victoria Hotel in Sliema, Malta.

About WoTUG

WoTUG provides a forum for the discussion and promotion of concurrency ideas, tools and products in computer science. It organises specialist workshops and annual conferences that address key concurrency issues at all levels of software and hardware granularity. WoTUG aims to progress the leading state of the art in:

  • theory (programming models, process algebra, semantics, ...);
  • practice (multicore processors and run-times, clusters, clouds, libraries, languages, verification, model checking, ...);
  • education (at school, undergraduate and postgraduate levels, ...);
  • applications (complex systems, modelling, supercomputing, embedded systems, robotics, games, e-commerce, ...);
and to stimulate discussion and ideas on the roles concurrency will play in the future:
  • for the next generation of scalable computer infrastructure (hard and soft) and application, where scaling means the ability to ramp up functionality (stay in control as complexity increases) as well as physical metrics (such as absolute performance and response times);
  • for system integrity (dependability, security, safety, liveness, ...);
  • for making things simple.
Of course, neither of the above sets of bullets are exclusive.

Porting the 3L Parallel C environment to the Texas Instruments TMS320C40

By Alan D. Culloch

The TMS320C40 ('C40) is a transputer-like parallel processor from Texas Instruments. It is an order of magnitude faster than the T800 transputer. Parallel C is a popular programming environment for the transputer. The properties of both the 'C40 and Parallel C are described and the significant differences between the 'C40 and the transputer are pointed out. The techniques used to overcome these obstacles to porting Parallel C are presented. These include building a new real-time kernel and reusing existing software packages from industry and academia. The suitability of the 'C40 for parallel applications is discussed.
