The scheduling of jobs on parallel supercomputer is becoming the subject of much research. However, there is concern about the divergence of theory and practice. We review theoretical research in this area, and recommendations based on recent results. This is contrasted with a proposal for standard interfaces among the components of a scheduling system, that has grown from requirements in the field.
