                                   IMUDI 2012
         Special Session on Improving MPI User And Developer Interaction


The IMUDI special session, to be held as a full-day meeting at the
EuroMPI 2012 conference in Vienna, Austria, focuses on bringing
together the MPI end-user and MPI implementor communities through
discussions on MPI usage experiences, techniques, and optimizations.
This meeting will focus on evaluating the MPI standard from the
perspective of the MPI end-user (application and library developers)
and address concerns and insights of MPI implementors and vendors.

Unlike workshops associated with other conferences, the IMUDI session
is still considered to be a part of the Euro MPI conference.
Submissions will be reviewed separately to facilitate bringing
together research publications falling into these "special focus"

Topics of Interest:

The topics include but are not limited to:
 - Software development and optimization challenges for MPI-based
   applications and libraries
 - Evaluation of existing MPI features and use cases by the MPI application
   and library development community
 - Analysis of MPI-based and alternative programming model implementations of
   applications and libraries
 - New techniques and features to improve the MPI programming model and usage
   by current MPI end-users
 - Analysis of the evolution of the MPI programming model and implementation
   for future HPC systems
 - Analysis of alternative programming model features implemented within MPI
 - Issues related to deploying and supporting MPI on parallel machines
 - Experiences in porting applications and libraries to MPI
