 Please excuse if you receive multiple copies of this announcement
 The IEEE Third International Conference on
 Algorithms And Architectures for Parallel Processing
 December 8th-12th, 1997, Melbourne, Australia

Sponsored by:
IEEE Victoria Section, IEEE Computer Society. Deakin University,
Faculty of Science and Technology Deakin University.


The ICA3PP-97 Conference is directed to bring together developers and
researchers from universities, industry and government to advance
science and technology in distributed and parallel systems and

This special session will focus on architectures and techniques for
boosting performance via Instruction-Level Parallelism (ILP).

Although it is not mandatory to know all the details of the internal
architecture to be able to use a pipelined processor, sophisticated
compilers and specific code optimization techniques are required to
exploit its whole potential. The traditional code optimization at
assembly level does not guarantee the internal structure of pipelined
processors to be fully exploited, and the determination of the
execution time becomes unpredictable without a simulation or a real
run. On the other hand also the hardware designer cannot tune the
internal architecture of a system without the knowledge on the
applications that the processor will be required to run.

The traditional assumption of the "instruction set" as the interface
between architects and compiler designers is no longer valid. Computer
architects and compiler designers must cooperate and investigate
possible innovative solutions to exploit parallelism in future
high-performance processors.

This special session is intended as a place where researchers and
developers in both the architectural and software fields can meet and
discuss key issues of common interest.

Topics of interest include:
 ILP-based architectures,
 Innovative ILP-based architectures,
 Design tools for ILP-based systems,
 Application-specific ILP-based systems for real-time 
	image processing, numerical analysis, physical simulation,...
 Languages and paradigms exploiting ILP,
 Compilation and code generation techniques for ILP,
 Code optimization for ILP,
 Performance analysis and prediction tools for ILP,
 ILP-based algorithms
 Compiler and architecture co-design,
 Applications of ILP techniques,
 Theoretical foundations of ILP

 A Special Issue on
 Machine Vision for Intelligent Vehicles and Autonomous Robots

Due to the reduced costs of image acquisition devices and to the
increasing computational power of current computer systems, Artificial
Vision has recently become a very popular method to sense the
surrounding environment. A large number of research prototypes of
vision-based autonomous systems have been developed worldwide by
academic, industrial, and military institutions, each relying on
different techniques.

Following these developments, it is planned to publish a special issue
of the international journal Engineering Applications of Artificial
Intelligence to be dedicated to AI techniques applied to vision-based
navigation. The special issue will be published in February 1998.

Topics covered in the special issue may include, but are not limited
to, the following:
 Active and Real-Time Vision
 Object Recognition and Scene Interpretation
 Sensing of Unknown Environments
 Vision-based Real-time Robot and Vehicle Navigation
 Vision-based Guidance of Unmanned Vehicles
 Intelligent Sensors and Architectures for Low-level Vision
 Description of Research Prototypes

Authors are invited to submit application-oriented papers dealing with
the various aspects of autonomous navigation, and how artificial
intelligence techniques can help this task. Send five copies of the
complete manuscript, before March 1st, 1997, to:
