ExaMPI15: Workshop on Exascale MPI 2015
November 16, 2015
Austin, TX
Held in conjunction with SC15 (http://sc15.supercomputing.org/)
Held in cooperation with ACM SIGHPC (http://www.sighpc.org/)

Call for papers
The MPI design and its main implementations have proved surprisingly
scalable. MPI has been robust, and been able to evolve, without
fundamentally changing the model and specification. For this and many other
reasons, MPI is currently the de-facto standard for HPC systems and
applications. However, there is a need to re-examine of the Message-Passing
model for extreme-scale systems that are characterized by asymptotically
decreasing local memory and highly localized communication networks.
Likewise, there is a need for exploring innovative and potentially
disruptive concepts and algorithms beyond those taken by the MPI 3.1

The aim of this workshop is to bring together developers and researchers to
present and to discuss innovative algorithms, concepts, implementation and
applications of the Message-Passing programming model. With the ExaMPI
workshop series, we aim at creating a forum for open and potentially
controversial discussions on the future of MPI in the exascale era and on
the MPI requirements to support applications at exascale.

Topics of interest (but are not limited to)
* Message-Passing collective operations.
* One-sided communication models in MPI.
* MPI and threading.
* Interoperability of Message-Passing with other programming models (e.g.
PGAS, OpenMP, ...)
* Integration of task models into MPI.
* MPI for shared memory programming.
* Streaming models in MPI.
* Fault tolerance in MPI.
* MPI I/O.
* MPI message queue mechanisms.
* MPI in extreme scale applications.
* MPI in scientific libraries.
* MPI for data-driven problems.
* MPI for large-graph problems
* Auto-tuning frameworks for MPI applications.
* MPI performance models.
* Communication topology mapping interfaces and algorithms.
* Algorithms for scheduling/routing to avoid network congestion.

Paper submission and publication
There are two submission categories:

* Regular research paper: submission of full paper. Regular paper
submissions are limited to 10 single-space pages (including figures, tables
and references) using a 10-point on 8.5x11-inch pages (US Letter).
Templates can be found in:
http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates. Accepted
regular research papers will be archived in both the ACM Digital Library
and IEEE Xplore, by virtue of SIGHPC. Authors of accepted papers will be
required to sign the ACM copyright form. Instructions for preparing regular
papers for the proceedings will be emailed to authors of accepted papers.

* Hot topic abstract: submission of an extended abstract. These submissions
target work-in-progress research on potentially controversial topics in
Message-Passing. Hot topic extended abstracts are limited to 3 single-space
pages: http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates. Accepted
hot topic extended abstracts will be published only on the ExaMPI15 website.

Regular Papers and extended abstracts should be submitted electronically

Important dates
* Paper submission: September 6, 2015
* Acceptance notification: September 23, 2015
* Final papers due: October 6, 2015
