PVM (Parallel Virtual Machine) and MPI (Message Passing Interface) have evolved into 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 naturally encourages discussions of new message-passing and other parallel and distributed programming paradigms beyond MPI and PVM.
The 13th European PVM/MPI Users' Group Meeting will be a forum for users and developers of PVM, MPI, and other message-passing programming environments. Through presentation of contributed papers,vendor presentations, poster presentations and invited talks, they 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
Extensions to PVM and MPI
PVM and MPI for high-performance computing, clusters and grid environments
New message-passing and hybrid parallel programming paradigms
Formal methods for reasoning about message-passing programs
Interaction between message-passing software and hardware
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
This year special emphasis will be put on new message-passing paradigms and programming models, addressing perceived or demonstrated shortcomings of either PVM or MPI, enabling a better fit with new hardware and interconnect technologies, or higher-productivity programming. As in the preceeding years, the special session ParSim will focus on numerical simulation for parallel engineering environments.
