MPI Sessions: paper at EuroMPI 2016

28 Jul 2016
INTERTWinE work features in EuroMPI paper

The INTERTWinE team is pleased to announce that some of the work carried out within the context of the project will be referenced in a full paper to be presented by Dr Daniel Holmes of EPCC at EuroMPI 2016 (Edinburgh, 25-28 September).

The paper, entitled MPI Sessions: Leveraging Runtime Infrastructure to Increase Scalability of Applications at Exascale, will be given in session 6 (Track A) on Tuesday 27th September. The abstract follows:

MPI includes all processes in MPI_COMM_WORLD; this is untenable for reasons of scale, resiliency, and overhead. This paper offers a new approach, extending MPI with Sessions, which makes two key contributions: a tighter integration with the underlying runtime system; and a scalable route to communication groups. This is a fundamental change in how we organise and address MPI processes that removes well-known scalability barriers by no longer requiring the global communicator MPI_COMM_WORLD.
