This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 5th European Meeting of the Parallel Virtual Machine and Message Passing Interface Users' Group, PVM/MPI '98, held in Liverpool, UK, in September 1998. The 49 contributed and invited papers presented were carefully reviewed and revised for inclusion in the volume. All current aspects of PVM and MPI are addressed. The papers are organized in topical sections on evaluation and performance, extensions and improvements, implementation issues, tools, and algorithms.
