Abstract : This is the 6th Heterogeneous Computing Workshop, also known as HCW '97. Heterogeneous computing is a very important research area with great practical impact. The topic of heterogeneous computing covers many types of systems. A heterogeneous system may be a set of machines interconnected by a wide-area network and used to support the execution of jobs submitted by a variety of users. A heterogeneous system may be a suite of high-performance machines tightly interconnected by a fast dedicated local-area network and used to process a set of production tasks, where the subtasks of each task may execute on different machines in the suite. A heterogeneous system may also be a special-purpose embedded system, such as a set of different types of processors used for automatic target recognition. In the extreme, a heterogeneous system may consist of a single machine that can reconfigure itself to operate in different ways (e.g., in different modes of parallelism). All of these types of heterogeneous systems (as well as others) are appropriate topics for this workshop series. I hope you find the contents of these proceedings informative and interesting, and encourage you to look also at the proceedings of past and future HCWs.
