"MPI Is Not Perfect...Yet"

17 Aug 2016
In an HPCWire article, INTERTWinE's Daniel Holmes discusses why MPI is still relevant in today's fast-changing high-end computing environment.

Dr Daniel Holmes, of EPCC, is the Programme Chair for the EuroMPI 2016 conference, to be held in Edinburgh in September.

In a recent article in HPCWire, Daniel responds to a blog article entitled "HPC is dying and MPI is killing it", and explains why he has invited its author, Jonathan Dursi, to be a keynote speaker at this year's EuroMPI conference, which has the theme, “Modern Challenges to MPI’s Dominance in HPC”.

In order to avoid simply "preaching to the converted" at this year's EuroMPI, Daniel has designed a conference programme which opens up the platform to perspectives from outside the MPI community, in order to try to better understand and address the challenges facing MPI in today's quickly-evolving world of high-end computing.
