Dear all,

the new MPI-3.0 standard and first implementations are available.
This opens the door for a lot of new and interesting research
in providing and using parallel programming models.
The EuroMPI 2013 may be an ideal conference for publishing
your new results.  Find below the early call for papers.
My apologies for double postings.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year / Season's greetings

Recent Advances in Message Passing Interface. 20th European MPI Users' Group Meeting (EuroMPI 2013)

EuroMPI 2013 is being held in cooperation with SIGHPC

Madrid, Spain, September 15-18, 2013


EuroMPI is the preeminent meeting for users, developers and researchers to interact and discuss new developments and applications of message-passing parallel computing, in particular in and related to the Message Passing Interface (MPI). The annual meeting has a long, rich tradition, and the 20th European MPI Users' Group Meeting will again be a lively forum for discussion of everything related to usage and implementation of MPI and other parallel programming interfaces. Traditionally, the meeting has focused on the efficient implementation of aspects of MPI, typically on high-performance computing platforms, benchmarking and tools for MPI, short-comings and extensions of MPI, parallel I/O and fault tolerance, as well as parallel applications using MPI. The meeting is open towards other topics, in particular application experience and alternative interfaces for high-performance heterogeneous, hybrid, distributed memory systems.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- MPI implementation issues and improvements
- Extensions to and shortcomings of MPI
- Tools and environments for MPI
- Hybrid and heterogeneous programming with MPI and other interfaces
- Relation of MPI to alternative interfaces for hybrid/heterogeneous distributed memory systems
- Interaction between message-passing software and hardware, in particular new high performance architectures
- Fault tolerance in message-passing implementations and systems
- Performance evaluation for MPI and MPI based applications-
- Automatic performance tuning of MPI applications and implementations
- Verification of message passing applications and protocols
- Applications using message-passing, in particular in Computational Science and Scientific Computing
- Non-standard message-passing applications
- Parallel algorithms in the message-passing paradigm
- Algorithms using the message-passing paradigm

The meeting will feature contributed talks on the selected, peer-reviewed papers, invited expert talks covering upcoming and future issues, a vendor session where selected vendors will present their new developments in hybrid and heterogeneous cluster and high-performance architectures, a poster session, and a tutorial day.

The scientific part of the conference is organized in cooperation with ACM SIGHPC. Conference proceedings will be published in the ACM Digital Library, which includes short and long papers, workshop papers, and posters. Selected high quality papers will be published in an international journals. There will also be a reward for the overall best paper from the academic conference.


Contributors are invited to submit a full paper as a PDF document not exceeding 6 pages in English. The title page should contain an abstract of at most 100 words and five specific, topical keywords. The paper must be formatted according to double-column ACM ICPS proceedings style. The usage of LaTeX for preparation of the contribution as well as the submission in camera ready format is strongly recommended. Style files can be found at http://www.acm.org/publications/icps-instructions/.

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 contributions will be fully peer reviewed by the program committee. Papers shall be submitted electronically via Easychair, see http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=eurompi2013.


There will be awards for the best paper and best student paper. These awards will be chosen by the program committee. The best paper award will be given to the paper judged to have the highest overall quality.


- Submission of full papers and poster: March 29th, 2013
- Author notification: May 11th, 2013
- Camera Ready papers due: June 15th, 2013
- Tutorial(s): September 15th, 2012
- Conference: September 16th-18th, 2013

The conference will hopefully be well supported by sponsors, which will help directly towards keeping the fees low. As far as possible, special student fees will be offered.
