This book constitutes the strictly refereed post-workshop proceedings of the International Workshop on Job Scheduling Strategies for Parallel Processing, held in conjunction with IPPS '96 symposium in Honolulu, Hawaii, in April 1996. The book presents 15 thoroughly revised full papers accepted for inclusion on the basis of the reports of at least five program committee members. The volume is a highly competent contribution to advancing the state-of-the-art in the area of job scheduling for parallel supercomputers. Among the topics addressed are job scheduler, workload evolution, gang scheduling, multiprocessor scheduling, parallel processor allocation, and distributed memory environments.
