This paper introduces the HiPPO (High Performance Par-allel Object-oriented) language. HiPPO is unique in its combination of a visual syntax with an object-oriented computation model based on the flow of object references. The paper describes some of the notations used in the lan-guage with particular emphasis on the features provided to support the exploitation of parallelism. Aspects of the run-time support for HiPPO programs will also be described.
