Experts in parallel and high-performance computing areas related to 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 2019 conference that will be held on September 10-13, 2019 in Zurich,
Switzerland. The EuroMPI 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 2019. The EuroMPI tutorial program will
provide an opportunity to present from introductory to advanced courses on
topics related to the main conference. EuroMPI 2019 invites proposals
for workshops
and tutorials on the broadest possible range of topics related to,
or challenging the message-passing paradigm in general and MPI in
The EuroMPI 2019 workshops and tutorials will all take place on September
10, 2019.


Workshops and tutorials on all areas with a relation to MPI, its usage
or implementation,
complementary to or challenging the MPI paradigm are invited. Workshops can
also consider presentation of works in an early stage.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

- Use of MPI in new and unconventional applications
- Paradigms and application areas that challenge the message-passing model
- 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 and heterogeneous processing elements in applications and
programming interfaces
- Large-scale scientific simulations
- Support of MPI for hardware heterogeneity
- Performance analysis of MPI and associated programming models
- Machine learning in the context of communication/message passing


Proposals are limited to an up to 3 pages description that should include
the followings:

- A title, an abstract (400 words maximum), and a syllabus
- A description of the target audience
- Indication of half-day or full-day duration
- For tutorials, outline of the agenda and indicate if hands-on session
will be included
- For workshops, a draft of the CFP
- If applicable, details on previous instantiations of the workshop or
tutorial, including number of attendees

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 2019 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 sent to
bgerofi at riken.jp and mercier at labri.fr with the subject: "EuroMPI 2019

Workshops should suggest their own submission deadlines, but the
camera-ready deadline for accepted contributions should follow the
camera-ready deadline of the main conference. Workshop organizers will
themselves be responsible for managing submissions and the review process.

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

EuroMPI 2019 will consider increasing the time allocated to a workshop if space
is available.

EuroMPI 2019 will provide a free conference registration for one
keynote speaker
at workshops with at least seven accepted talks. The free registration cannot
be used by a workshop organizer, even if the organizer presents a keynote.
EuroMPI 2019 will provide a free conference registration per full-day tutorial
(one presenter).


- Workshop and tutorial submission deadline: February 22, 2019
