Traian Muntean, ed.
Parallel Programming of Transputer Based Machines: 7th occam User Group.
IOS. 1988

(read but not reviewed)

This volume contains nearly all papers which were presented at the 7th Technical Meeting of the Occam User Group (OUG). The meeting was held 14-16th September 1987 in Grenoble, France.

The main aim of the Occam User Group is to act as an independent forum for the exchange of ideas, results and information in research and development of projects in the area of parallel systems design and programming using various communicating processes oriented approaches for transputer based machines.

The 7th meeting of the OUG was the first one outside the UK and was organized by IMAG-University of Grenoble. The meeting draw nearly 250 delegates from four continents.

The papers collected in this volume cover topics such as: methodology of Occam programming, parallel asynchronous algorithms, control of real parallelism in highly parallel machines of transputers, applications in scientific programming, real-time processing, image processing, etc. About 40 papers were presented together with some posters which have been included into this volume as well.
