 Call for Papers 
 ExaMPI-19 - Workshop on Exascale MPI 2019
 Sunday, November 10th, 2019
 Denver, CO, USA
 Held in conjunction with SC19: The International Conference for High
 Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis
 In cooperation with the IEEE Computer Society Technical Consortium on 
 High Performance Computing (TCHPC)
 The MPI standard and its implementations have proved surprisingly
 scalable. Issues that hampered scalability have been addressed in the
 MPI 2.1 – 2.2 definition process, and continued into MPI 3.0 and
 3.1. Thus, MPI has been robust and has been able to evolve, without
 fundamentally changing the model or specification. For this and many
 other reasons, MPI is currently the de-facto standard for HPC systems
 and applications. However, there is a need for re-examination of the
 message-passing model for extreme-scale systems characterized by
 asymptotically decreasing local memory and highly localized
 communication networks. Likewise, there is a need for exploring new
 innovative and potentially disruptive concepts and algorithms
 partially to explore other roads than those taken by the recently
 released MPI 2018 Draft Specification. The aim of this workshop is to
 bring together developers and researchers to present and discuss
 innovative algorithms, protocols, operations, and concepts in Message
 Passing programming models, in particular related to MPI or MPI+X.
 Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
 - Design and development of scalable Message Passing collective operations.
 - Communication and architecture topology mapping interfaces and algorithms.
 - Innovative algorithms for scheduling/routing to avoid network congestion.
 - Integrated use of structured data layout descriptors.
 - One-sided communication models and RDMA-based MPI.
 - Support for heterogenous compute devices and heterogeneous memory systems.
 - MPI multi-threading and threading requirements from OSes.
 - Interoperability of Message Passing and PGAS models.
 - Integration of task-parallel models into Message Passing models.
 - Fault tolerance in MPI.
 - MPI I/O.
 Paper submission and publication
 There are two submission categories:
 (1) 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
 Templates can be found at:
 Instructions for preparing regular papers for the proceedings will
 be emailed to authors of accepted papers. Submitted regular papers 
 will be peer-reviewed and accepted papers will be published by 
 the IEEE TCHPC.  Selected regular papers will be invited for submission 
 to a special issue of a journal (more details to follow soon).
 (2) 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.  Templates can be found at:
 Accepted hot topic extended abstracts will be published only on the
 ExaMPI19 website.
 Regular Papers and extended abstracts should be submitted
 electronically through Linklings at:  https://submissions.supercomputing.org.
 Important dates
 Paper Submissions Deadline: August 31, 2019
