             EuroMPI 2018: Early Call for Posters

The 25th European MPI Users' Group Meeting
September 23-26, 2018
Twitter: @eurompiconf


EuroMPI is the preeminent meeting for users, developers and
researchers to interact and discuss new developments and applications
of message-passing parallel computing, in particular in and related to
the Message Passing Interface (MPI).

EuroMPI/USA 2018 will continue to focus on not just MPI, but also
extensions or alternative interfaces for high-performance
homogeneous/heterogeneous/hybrid systems, benchmarks, tools, parallel
I/O, fault tolerance, and parallel applications using MPI and other
interfaces. Through the presentation of contributed papers, poster
presentations and invited talks, attendees will have the opportunity
to share ideas and experiences to contribute to the improvement and
furthering of message-passing and related parallel programming paradigms.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Implementation Issues
- MPI implementation issues and improvements towards exascale
computing, such as many-cores, GPGPU, and heterogeneous architectures.
- Interaction between message-passing software and hardware, in
particular new high-performance architectures.
- New MPI-IO mechanisms and I/O stack optimizations.
* Programming Models
- Extensions to and shortcomings of MPI.
- Hybrid and heterogeneous programming with MPI and other interfaces.
- MPI support for data-intensive parallel applications.
- Fault tolerance in message-passing implementations and systems.
- New programming paradigms implemented over MPI, like hierarchical
programming and global address spaces
- MPI parallel programming in clouds.
* Applications and Performance
- Performance evaluation for MPI and MPI-based applications.
- Automatic performance tuning of MPI applications and implementations.
- Verification of message-passing applications and protocols.
- Applications using message passing, in particular in computational
science and scientific computing.
- Parallel algorithms in the message-passing paradigm.
- MPI applications performance on clouds.
