Experts in parallel and high-performance computing areas related to or
benefiting from MPI are invited to share their expertise with the
broader MPI community by submitting proposals for workshops to be
co-located with the EuroMPI/USA 2017 conference that will be held on
September 25-28, 2017 in Chicago, Illinois. The EuroMPI/USA 2017
workshop program will provide an opportunity for researchers to
present preliminary, new work and work that can complement and extend
the topics covered by EuroMPI/USA 2017 and, thus, will give attendees
access to the latest work in progress in the fields. EuroMPI/USA 2017
invites proposals for workshops on the broadest possible range of
topics related to, complementing or challenging the message-passing
paradigm in general and MPI in particular. The EuroMPI/USA workshops
will all take place on September 25, 2017.


Workshops on all areas with a relation to MPI, its usage or
implementation, or complementary or challenging to the MPI paradigm
are invited. Workshops can also be fora to present new work in an
early stage. Possible topics include but are not limited to the

- Use of MPI in new and unconventional applications
- Paradigms and application areas that challenge the message-passing
- New message-passing models
- Different high-performance programming models and interfaces like
  PGAS, streaming models, etc.
- Irregular and non-numerical applications on large-scale systems
- New applications areas
- Use of accelerators in applications and programming interfaces
- Large-scale scientific simulation

Workshop contributions can be included in the ACM conference


Proposals are limited to an up to 3 page description that should
include the following:

- A title, an abstract (400 words maximum), and a syllabus;
- Discussion of the topic's relevance, suitability to EuroMPI/USA,
and workshop goals;
- A description of the target audience;
- An indication of half-day or full-day duration;
- If applicable, details on previous instantiations of the workshop,
including attendance numbers.

In addition to the 3 page description, please include the following:

- A brief biographical sketch of each workshop organizer (at most 1
per organizer).

Workshop proposals will be evaluated as they are received. Decisions
will be made based on the proposal content and its relationship to any
other workshop proposals that have been accepted or received at the
time the proposal is received. Since this policy may result in the
workshop program being completed early, EuroMPI/USA 2017 reserves the
right to close workshop submissions prior to the date listed below.

A single pdf file with all the material described above should be
submitted to the Euro MPI/US 2017 online submission
system at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=eurompiusa2017
under the workshop track.

Workshops should suggest their own submission deadlines, but the
camera-ready deadline for accepted contributions should follow the
camera-ready deadline for the main conference, in order to guarantee
inclusion of workshop papers in the ACM proceedings.  Workshop
organizers will themselves be responsible for managing submission and
review process.

The length of a workshop will be determined based on the following

- Workshops that accept ten or more papers will be provided space
for a full day program;
- Workshops that accept seven to nine papers will be provided space
for four and a half hours (not including breaks);
- Workshops that accept five or six papers will be provided space
for three hours (not including breaks);
- Workshops that accept three or four papers will be provided space
for a half hour per paper;
- Workshops with fewer accepted papers will be canceled.

EuroMPI/USA 2017 will consider increasing the time allocated to a
if space is available.

EuroMPI/USA 2017 will provide free conference registration for one
keynote speaker to workshops that accept ten or more papers. The free
registration cannot be used by a workshop organizer, even if the
organizer presents a keynote.


* Workshop proposal submission cut-off deadline: January 15, 2017
