                         IMUDI -- Call For Papers
       Special Session on Improving MPI User And Developer Interaction


The IMUDI special session, to be held as a full-day meeting at the EuroMPI
2013 conference in Madrid, Spain, 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" areas.

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

Author instructions:

Contributors are invited to submit a full paper as a PDF document not
exceeding 6 pages in English. The title page should contain an abstract and
five specific, topical keywords. The paper must be formatted according to
double-column ACM ICPS proceedings style. The usage of LaTeX for preparation
of the contribution as well as the submission in camera ready format is
strongly recommended. Style files can be found

New work that is not yet mature for a full paper, short observations, and
similar brief announcements are invited as well. Accepted submissions will be
given an appropriate length time slot.

All contributions, including short papers and work-in-progress contributions,
will be fully peer reviewed by the program committee.

Submissions can be uploaded through EasyChair:


Accepted papers will be published in the EuroMPI proceedings (published by the
ACM Digital Library). Accepted contributions are expected to be presented by
one of the authors at EuroMPI 2013 during the IMUDI special session.
