> 15th European PVMMPI Users' Group Meeting
> Dublin, Ireland, September 7 - 10, 2008
> web:
> organized by UCD School of Computer Science and Informatics
> 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 15th European PVM/MPI Users' Group Meeting will be a forum for
> users
> and developers of PVM, MPI, and other message-passing programming
> environments. Through the presentation of contributed papers, vendor
> presentations, poster presentations and invited talks, attendees 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
> * Latest extensions to PVM and MPI
> * PVM and MPI for high-performance computing, clusters and grid
> environments
> * New message-passing and hybrid parallel programming paradigms
> * Interaction between message-passing software and hardware
> * Fault tolerance in message-passing programs
> * 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
> Submissions on applications demonstrating both the potential and
> shortcomings of MPI and PVM are particularly welcome.
> As in the previous years, the special session 'ParSim' will focus on
> numerical simulation for parallel engineering environments. EuroPVM/
> 2008
> will also hold the 'Outstanding Papers' session, where the best papers
> selected by the program committee will be presented.
> Contributors are invited to submit a full paper as a PDF document not
> exceeding 8 pages in English (2 pages for poster abstracts). The title
> page should contain an abstract of at most 100 words and five specific
> keywords.
> The paper needs to be formatted according to the Springer LNCS
> guidelines
> ( The usage of LaTeX
> for
> preparation of the contribution as well as the submission in camera
> ready
> format is strongly recommended. Style files can be found at
> New work that is not
> yet
> mature for a full paper, short observations, and similar brief
> announcements are invited for the poster session. Contributions to the
> poster session should be submitted in the form of a two page abstract.
> All these contributions will be fully peer reviewed by the program
> committee.
> Submissions to the special session 'Current Trends in Numerical
> Simulation for Parallel Engineering Environments' (ParSim 2008) are
> handled and reviewed by the respective session chairs. For more
> information please refer to the ParSim website

> All accepted submissions are expected to be presented at the
