When Janusz Zalewski and myself worked at UTPB, we have conducted a number of studies related to the position of parallel computing in the CS curriculum. Our basic assumption was that the future of computing lies in parallel and distributed computing. We have come to the conclusion that parallel computing can be introduced into the CS curriculum without adding a special course. Just recently I came back to this idea and re-introduced it in IEEE Distributed Systems Magazine. Overall, our work has been summarized in the following publications (texts of papers should be treated as "technical reports" as they may slightly differ from the published version - which, in most cases, is the version copyrighted by the publisher and that version should be used in case of quotations):
