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 and
tutorials to be co-located with the EuroMPI 2018 conference that will
be held on September 23-26, 2018 in Barcelona, Spain. The EuroMPI 2018
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 2018 and, thus, will give attendees
access to the latest work in progress in the fields. The EuroMPI
tutorial program will provide an opportunity to present from
introductory to advanced courses on topics related to the conference.
EuroMPI 2018 invites proposals for workshops and tutorials on the
broadest possible range of topics related to, complementing or
challenging the message-passing paradigm in general and MPI in
particular. The EuroMPI 2018 workshops and tutorials will all take
place on September 23, 2018.


Workshops and tutorials 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 consider the presentation of 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
- Support of MPI to hardware heterogeneity
- Performance analysis of MPI and associated programming models

Workshop contributions can be included in the ACM conference


Proposals are limited to an up to 3 pages 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, and
  workshop/tutorial 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 or
  tutorial, including attendance numbers.
- For tutorials, indicate and outline of the agenda
- For tutorials, indicate if hands-on session will be included

In addition to the 3 pages description, please include the following:
- A brief biographical sketch of each workshop organizer or tutorial
  presenters (at most 1 page per organizer). For tutorials presenters,
indicate previous experience in tutorial or training events.

Workshop and tutorial proposals will be evaluated as they are
received. Decisions will be made based on the proposal content and its
relationship to any other workshop and tutorial proposals that have
been accepted or received at the time the proposal is received. Since
this policy may result in the workshop and tutorial program being
completed early, EuroMPI 2018 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 2018 online submission system
(https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=eurompi2018) under the
workshop_and_tutorial 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.

Length of the workshops can be adapted to the number of papers
accepted and the organizer may cancel the workshop in case of low
number of submissions accepted.

EuroMPI 2018 will consider increasing the time allocated to a workshop
if space is available.

EuroMPI 2018 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. EuroMPI 2018 will provide a free
conference registration per full-day tutorial (one presenter).


- Workshop and tutorial submission cut-off deadline: January 15, 2018
