ABSTRACT
<p>In this paper, we present GASPARD (Graphical Array Specification for PARallel and Distributed computing) which is our visual programming environment devoted to the development of parallel applications.</p> <p>Task and data parallelism paradigm of parallel computing are mixed in GASPARD to achieve a simple programming interface. We use the printed circuit metaphor. The programmer specifies tasks and instantiates by plugging them into a slot (task parallelism). Data parallelism is achieved by specifying the data the task uses.</p> <p>By mixing textual and visual programming, we achieve convenient interface useful for scientific programming. The interface is also well suited for meta-computing deployment. This kind of programming is very useful for numerical simulation.</p>
