An important activity of HPFF94 was the processing of the many items submitted for comment and interpretation which led to the HPF 1.1 update of the language document. A special acknowlegement goes to Henry Zongaro, IBM, for many thoughtful questions exposing dark corners of language design that were previously overlooked, and to Guy Steele, Thinking Machines/Sun Microsystems for his analysis of, and solutions for some of the thornier issues discussed. And general thanks to the people who submitted comments and interpretation requests, including:
David Loveman, Michael Hennecke, James Cownie, Adam Marshall, Stephen Ehrlich, Mary Zosel, Matt Snyder, Larry Meadows, Dick Hendrickson, Dave Watson, John Merlin, Vasanth Bala, Paul.Wesson, Denis.Hugli, Stanly Steinberg, Henk Sips, Henry Zongaro, Eiji_Nunohiro, Jens Bloch Helmers, Rob Schreiber, David B. Serafini, and Allan Knies.
Other special mention goes to Chuck Koelbel at Rice University for continued maintenance of the HPFF mailing lists, to Donna Reese and staff at Mississippi State University for establishing and maintaining a WWW home-page for HPFF, and to the University of Maryland for establishing a benchmark FTP site.
Theresa Chatman and staff at Rice University were responsible for meeting planning and organization and Danny Powell continued to handle financial details of the project.
HPFF94 received direct support for research and administrative activities from grants from ARPA, DOE, and NSF.
