Exascale MPI


EVENT TYPE: Workshops

TIME: 8:30AM - 12:00PM

Organizer(s):Stefano Markidis, Erwin Laure, Jesper Larsson Träff, Lorna Smith, Mark Parsons


The MPI design and its main implementations have proved surprisingly scalable. Some issues that hampered MPI scalability have been addressed in the MPI 2.1-2.2 definition process, and continued into MPI 3.0. 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 (MP) model and for exploring new innovative and potentially disruptive concepts and algorithms, partially to explore other roads than those taken by the recently released MPI 3.0 standard. The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and developers to present and discuss innovative algorithms and concepts in the MP programming model, in particular related to MPI. Possible workshop topics include innovative algorithms for: collective operations, topology mapping, scheduling/routing to avoid network congestion, fault-tolerant communication, interoperability of MP and PGAS models, and integration of task-parallel models.
