Since 1995 all the PaCT proceedings have been published by Springer in the LNCS series. PaCT-2007 was jointly organized by the Institute of Computational Mat- maticsandMathematicalGeophysicsoftheRussianAcademyofSciences(RAS) and the Program Systems Institute of the RAS (Pereslavl-Zalessky). The purpose of the conference was to bring together scientists working on theory, architecture, software,hardware and the solution of large-scale problems in order to provide integrated discussions on parallel computing technologies. The conference attracted about 100 participants from around the world. - thors from 25 countries submitted 98 papers. Of those, 37 papers were selected forthe conferenceasregularpapers;therewerealso2invited papers.Inaddition there were a number of posters presented. All the papers were internationally reviewed by at least three referees. A demo session was organized for the participants, and di?erent tools were submitted for a demonstration and tutorial. One of them was the Open TS: - namic Parallelization System for Multicore CPUs, SMPs, Clusters and GRIDs.
