|Abstract||The recent switch to multicore processors brought a dramatic change that affects a large spectrum of systems from embedded and general-purpose to high-end computing systems. Parallelism is forcing major changes in software development. The aim of this issue is to discuss the challenges that parallelism brings to the design and implementation of algorithms and data structures. This special issue arose out of discussions held at the Dagstuhl Seminar 10261, on Algorithm Engineering held June 27--July 2, 2010, in Germany, and organized by Giuseppe F. Italiano (Università di Roma “Tor Vergata,” Italy), David S. Johnson (AT&T Research, Florham Park, NJ), Petra Mutzel (Technical University of Dortmund, Germany), and Peter Sanders (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany). We conceived a special issue of the ACM Journal on Experimental Algorithmics with a call for original submissions that address implementation and performance issues of multicore algorithms and data structures for any multicore processor, for example, Intel Nehalem, Single-Chip Cloud, NVIDIA and AMD GPUs. An experimental study typically includes an implementation, a series of experiments designed to understand the behavior of the algorithm(s) under study, and a critical discussion of the experiments and their results. We welcomed experimental submissions and encouraged authors to include test data from previously published studies to enable critical comparisons. A total of nine submissions were received, and four were accepted for this special issue. All manuscripts had at least three extensive reviews, and most received five to six reviews. We thank all of the authors for their submissions, and especially the 16 reviewers of these manuscripts.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
