Computer and Information Systems Abstracts provides a comprehensive monthly update on the latest theoretical research and practical applications around the world. This database provides international coverage as well as coverage of numerous non-serial publications.

Sources covered include over 3,000 periodicals, conference proceedings, technical reports, trade journal/newsletter items, patents, books, and press releases.

Subject Coverage
    Major areas of coverage include:
    • Artificial Intelligence
    • Computer Applications
    • Computer Programming
    • Computer Systems Organization
    • Computing Milieux
    • Hardware
    • Information Systems
    • Mathematics of Computing
    • Software Engineering
Dates of Coverage
    Approximately 1981-current. The oldest record in the database has a publication date of 1961; about 50% of its records have publication dates of 1991 or later.
Update Frequency
    Once a month. Approximately 25,000 new records are added per year.
Size
    Over 1,762,993 records as of August 2013
Thesaurus
    The database is indexed using a master authority file of about 40,000 controlled-vocabulary terms. Older records in this database were indexed using a file-specific thesaurus; this thesaurus has now been incorporated into the master authority file.

    AB: Abstract
    Cost sensitive applications for parallel computing require system designs using commodity hardware. Off-the-shelf processing node have already been implemented in parallel systems. This article proposes the use of ATM (Asynchronous Transfer Mode) for interconnection networks. Because ATM was not designed as communication technology for parallel systems, some adaptation has to be done in order to meet the special requirements of parallel systems. This paper discusses advantages and drawbacks of this approach and shows solutions to adapt the ATM technology for usage in this special environment while preserving some unique features of ATM.
