Call for Papers

EuroMPI/USA 2022 will continue to focus on advancing the ubiquitous Message Passing Interface (MPI) model and specification of parallel programming. It will also encompass extensions and alternative interfaces for high-performance heterogeneous and hybrid systems, benchmarks, tools, parallel I/O, fault tolerance, and parallel applications using MPI and other interfaces. This meeting marks the 30th Anniversary of MPI, which kicked off in April, 1992.

EuroMPI/USA 2022 will be hosted by the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and will be co-located with IWOMP 2022 (September 27-30, 2022), with joint tutorials, and opportunities to interact between the two communities.

Through the presentation of full papers, position 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, hierarchical 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.

  • Interactions between the message-passing library and runtime systems.

Papers that are not accepted for presentation as full papers may be recommended for short papers or poster presentations. Short papers and poster prospectuses will be published informally but are not intended to appear in the regular conference 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 three 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 program committee and recommended for publication in a EuroMPI/USA 2022 Special Issue of a Journal, more details about the journal special issue coming here soon. These papers will go through a separate round of reviews, and are intended as extended, more polished archival versions of the conference versions.

Important Dates:

Abstracts Submission Deadline: June 1, 2022 (AOE)

Full Paper Submission Deadline: June 15, 2022 (AOE)

Short Papers and Position Papers: June 27, 2022 (AOE)

Notification of Acceptance of Papers: August 8, 2022

Poster Prospectuses: July 11, 2022 (AOE)

Notification of Acceptance of Posters: August 8, 2022

Submission Guidelines:

To be considered, papers must be formatted according to the “acmconf” template style of the ACM Primary Article Template. Full papers may be up to 10 pages in length in PDF format. Short and Position Papers are a maximum of 5 pages, and must conform otherwise to the same specifications as full papers. The recommended length of poster prospectuses is two pages. Submissions (regular papers, position papers, and posters) will be all handled via easychair:

The Overleaf template for LaTeX users can be found here (updated to point to the two-column format). Please make sure to use the “acmconf” template style.

The page limit includes figures, tables, and appendices, but does not include references, for which there is no page limit. Margins, spacing, and font sizes should not be modified from the template (e.g., no 'savetrees').
