Frames will provide support for the programming of distributed memory
machines via a library of basic algorithms, data structures and so-called
programming frames (or frameworks). The latter are skeletons with problem
dependent parameters to be provided by the users. Frames focuses on
re-usability and portability as well as on small and easy-to-learn
interfaces. Thus, expert and non-expert users will be provided with tools to
program and exploit parallel machines efficiently.
Frames will be constructed for different target machines and common
programming environments (like PVM or MPI). The focus, however, is on
distributed-memory machines. Frames will be adapted optimally to the target
systems, contain efficient state-of-the-art programming techniques, and
therefore increase the usability and therefore the acceptance of parallel
