BSP Worldwide is an association of people interested in the development of the Bulk Synchronous Parallel (BSP) computing model for parallel programming. It exists to provide a convenient means for the exchange of ideas and experiences about BSP and to stimulate the use of the BSP model. Areas of interest of BSP Worldwide include:
The organisation does not have a formal structure. Its activities depend on contributions by volunteers, BSP users, and developers.

Most BSP Worldwide activities are carried out using electronic
communications via email and web pages.
An email list (bspall-l "at" science.uu.nl ) has been established
to carry messages to those interested in all aspects of BSP Worldwide
activities. We try to fight spam with various means.
