Taxonomy for Visual Parallel Programming

Lookup NU author(s): Professor Pete Lee, Professor Jim Webber



Visual notations for constructing parallel programs have a number of potential advantages over traditional text-based forms, and several visual parallel programming languages have been proposed. This paper explores the design space for such visual languages, and presents a taxonomy that captures the salient underlying characteristics, with exemplification from a number of existing systems.
