This paper outlines a draft definition for EC++ . EC++ is a framework within which parallel C++ systems can be standardised. The framework will add portability to parallel C++ systems and will run across a variety of hardware architectures, while encompassing as wide a set of parallel computing models and paradigms as possible, both standard models and user extensible models. This is done entirely within standard C++ , without syntactic extensions to C++ .
