My apologies in case of multiple receptions.

****  EuroMPI/USA 2020 **** Austin, TX USA **** September 21-24, 2020 ****

Research Paper Submissions deadline extended to May 20, 2020 (AOE)

**** Planning regarding the COVID-19 pandemic *****
The organizing committee of EuroMPI/USA 2020 is currently evaluating all
  options to hold the conference in-person, virtually, or as a hybrid of
the two. No decision has yet been made, however, we will be working in
cooperation with the local organizing team and monitoring local
restrictions and guidelines to determine our plans as the conference
approaches. Regardless of the format, the organizing team is committed
to holding a high-quality conference including an excellent technical
program and ensuring that authors are able to present their work to the

EuroMPI/USA 2020 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, posters and
invited talks, the meeting will provide ample opportunities for
attendees to interact and share ideas and experiences to contribute to
the improvement and furthering of message-passing and related parallel
programming paradigms.

We invite high-quality, full paper submissions on all topics related to
message-passing parallel programming with MPI and related or competing 
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  - Implementation Issues and Algorithms: Efficient and scalable
implementations of message-passing constructs.
  - Architectures and systems: Towards exascale computing, efficient use
of accelerators and other features of modern, large-scale systems,
hardware-software interaction.
  - Programming models and paradigms for large-scale, parallel,
distributed memory systems, hierarchical and hybrid models, partitioned
global address space (PGAS) models.
  - Extensions to and shortcomings of MPI, alternative interfaces and
  - New, parallel (MPI-)I/O mechanisms optimizations.
  - Hybrid and heterogeneous programming with MPI and other interfaces.
  - Message passing interface support for data-intensive parallel
  - Fault tolerance in message-passing implementations and systems.
  - MPI parallel programming in clouds and non-dedicated systems.
  - Applications and Performance.
  - Performance evaluation for MPI and MPI-based applications.
  - Automatic performance tuning of 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.

We also invite submissions of short papers on the same topics that are
suitable for poster presentation at the conference. Papers that are not
accepted for presentation as full papers may be recommended for poster
presentation. Poster papers will be published informally but are not
intended to appear in the regular ACM Digital Library proceedings.

Papers will be reviewed for quality, originality, clarity, correctness,
technical strength, and relevance to the topics of the meeting. Each
paper will receive at least 3 reviews from members of the program
committee. Reviews are blind (but not double-blind), the names of the
authors will be seen by the program committee.

Among the papers selected for presentation, a few of the best papers
will, as has been the tradition for the last couple of years, be
selected by the programme committee and recommended for publication in a
EuroMPI/USA 2020 Special Issue of the Parallel Computing journal, see
https://www.journals.elsevier.com/parallel-computing/. These papers will
go through a separate round of reviews, and are intended as extended,
more polished archival versions of the conference versions.

Important Dates:

  - Submission Deadline: May 20, 2020 (AOE)
  - Notification of Acceptance: July 10, 2020

Submission Guidelines:

To be considered, papers must be formatted according to the "sigconf"
style in the ACM 2017 Template and up to 10 pages in length (shorter
papers are welcome) in pdf-format. The recommended length of poster
papers is two pages. Submissions (regular papers and posters) will be
handled via easychair.

The page limit includes figures, tables, and appendices, but does not
include references, for which there is no page limit. Margins and font
sizes should not be modified.
