Call for Papers

EuroMPI 2019 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 models. 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, hiearchical and hybrid models, partitioned global address space (PGAS) models.
  • Extensions to and shortcomings of MPI, alternative interfaces and solutions.
  • New, parallel (MPI-)I/O mechanisms optimizations.
  • Hybrid and heterogeneous programming with MPI and other interfaces.
  • Message passing interface support for data-intensive parallel applications.
  • 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.

Papers accepted for presentation as full papers will be published by ACM and appear in separate proceedings the ACM Digital Library.

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 comittee and recommended for publication in a EuroMPI 2019 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.

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. Authors should submit their work through the Euro MPI 2019 Submission Site at easychair.

Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings by ACM-ICPS.
