Well, as two IEEE-CS technical committees are cooperating sponsors on
this, I guess it is appropriate to post this here, too.

Workshop on Experiences with Distributed and Multiprocessor Systems*

October 5-6, 1989, Marriott Hotel, Ft. Lauderdale, FL

     The goal of this workshop is to bring together individuals who
have built, are building, or will soon build distributed and
multiprocessor systems, espe- cially operating systems.  The workshop
will feature full presentations and work-in-progress presentations on
aspects of building and using these systems.  The workshop will
provide a forum for individuals to exchange information on their
experiences, both good and bad, in designing, building, and testing
their systems.  This includes experiences with coding aids, languages,
distributed debugging tools, prototyping, reuse of existing software,
performance analysis, and lessons learned from use of such systems.
