The MVAPICH team is excited to host the 3rd annual MVAPICH User Group
(MUG) meeting. It will take place from August 19-21, 2015 in Columbus,
Ohio, USA. MUG will provide an open forum for all attendees (users,
system administrators, researchers, engineers, and students) to
discuss and share their knowledge on using MVAPICH with large-scale
systems and for a diverse set of applications.

The event includes a set of talks (on the 20th and 21st of August)
from experts in the field along with presentations from the MVAPICH
team on different aspects of using MVAPICH and trouble shooting
guidelines.  There will also be contributed presentations, an open mic
session, and an interactive/hands-on session with the MVAPICH
developers to discuss issues and problems.

On 19th of August, the MVAPICH team will present a half day tutorial
entitled 'Optimization and Tuning of MPI and PGAS Applications using

      materials science and engineering, medicine and physics

    * Performance and scalability studies of applications on
      large-scale systems

    * Special tuning and optimization strategies to exploit maximum
      performance and scalability

    * Tools and code instrumentation for measuring and monitoring
      performance and/or resilience

    * Tools for parallel program development (e.g., debuggers and
      integrated development environments

    * Unique usage scenarios such as GPGPUs, MICs, etc.

Submission should include title of the presentation, speaker(s), short
bio of the speaker(s), and a draft version of the presentation (around
10-15 slides in PDF or PowerPoint format). Send your submission in a
