Welcome to ICS'97

The ACM International Conference on Supercomputing is a forum for engineers and scientists throughout the world to exchange ideas and research results relating to high performance supercomputing systems. The 11th conference in the series is being held in Vienna, Austria, from July 7th through July 11th, 1997.

Special thanks are due to the Program Chair, Steve Wallach, the Vice Program Chairs, Harry Wijshoff, Nikolay Mirenkov and Jim Smith, the other members of the Conference Committee, and the Program Committee.
