Apologies if you have seen this already / please spread the CFP  
around.  Thanks!

16th European PVMMPI Users' Group Meeting
Espoo, Finland, September 7 - 10, 2009
Web: http://www.csc.fi/english/pages/pvmmpi09/
Organized by CSC - IT Center for Science
Submission website:

PVM (Parallel Virtual Machine) and MPI (Message Passing Interface)
have become the standard interfaces for high-performance parallel
programming in the message-passing paradigm. EuroPVM/MPI is the most
prominent meeting dedicated to the latest developments of PVM and MPI,
their use, including support tools, and implementation, and to
applications using these interfaces. The EuroPVM/MPI meeting also
encourages discussions of new message-passing and other parallel and
distributed programming paradigms beyond MPI and PVM.

The 16th European PVM/MPI Users' Group Meeting will be a forum for users
and developers of PVM, MPI, and other message-passing programming
environments. Through the presentation of contributed papers, vendor
presentations, 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 for the meeting include, but are not limited to:

    * PVM and MPI implementation issues and improvements
    * Latest extensions to PVM and MPI
    * PVM and MPI for high-performance computing, clusters and grid
    * New message-passing and hybrid parallel programming paradigms,
      eg. with general purpose graphics processors
    * Interaction between message-passing software and hardware
    * Fault tolerance in message-passing programs
    * Performance evaluation of PVM and MPI applications
    * Tools and environments for PVM and MPI
    * Algorithms using the message-passing paradigm
    * Applications in science and engineering based on message-passing

Submissions on applications demonstrating both the potential and
shortcomings of MPI and PVM are particularly welcome.

As in the previous years, the special session 'ParSim' will focus on
numerical simulation for parallel engineering environments.
EuroPVM/MPI 2009 will also hold the 'Outstanding Papers' session, where
the best papers selected by the program committee will be presented.


Contributors are invited to submit a full paper as a PDF document not
exceeding 10 pages in English (2 pages for poster abstracts). In  
two more pages may be included on a page charge basis, 50 euros/page.
The title page should contain an abstract of at most 100 words and five
specific keywords.
The paper needs to be formatted according to the Springer LNCS  
(http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html). The usage of LaTeX for
preparation of the contribution as well as the submission in camera  
format is strongly recommended. Style files can be found at
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html. New work that is not
yet mature for a full paper, short observations, and similar brief
announcements are invited for the poster session.
Contributions to the poster session should be submitted in the form
of a two page abstract. All these contributions will be fully peer
reviewed by the program committee.

Papers are to be submitted electronically via the online submission
system at

Submissions to the special session 'Current Trends in Numerical  
for Parallel Engineering Environments' (ParSim 2009) are handled and
reviewed by the respective session chairs. For more information please
refer to the ParSim website

All accepted submissions are expected to be presented at the conference
by one of the authors, which requires registration for the conference.
