EuroPVM/MPI 2006

    13th European PVMMPI Users' Group Meeting
    Wissenschaftszentrum Bonn, Ahrstrasse 45, D-53175 Bonn

    Bonn, Germany, September 17-20, 2006

organized by

    C&C Research Laboratories, NEC Europe Ltd (http://www.ccrl-nece.de)
    Forschungszentrum Juelich (http://www.fz-juelich.de)

BACKGROUND AND TOPICS

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 13th European PVM/MPI Users' Group Meeting will be a forum for
users and developers of PVM, MPI, and other message-passing
programming environments. Through presentation of contributed papers,
vendor presentations, poster presentations and invited talks, they
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
     * Extensions to PVM and MPI
     * PVM and MPI for high-performance computing, clusters and grid environments
     * New message-passing and hybrid parallel programming paradigms
     * Formal methods for reasoning about message-passing programs
     * Interaction between message-passing software and hardware
     * 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

This year special emphasis will be put on new message-passing
paradigms and programming models, addressing perceived or demonstrated
shortcomings of either PVM or MPI, enabling a better fit with new
hardware and interconnect technologies, or higher-productivity
programming. As in the preceeding years, the special session 'ParSim'
will focus on numerical simulation for parallel engineering
environments.

EuroPVM/MPI 2006 also introduces two new session types
which are 'Outstanding Papers' and 'Late and Breaking Results' for
up-to-date information which can be submitted after the deadline for
full papers.

SUBMISSION INFORMATION

Contributors are invited to submit a full paper as PDF (or Postscript)
document not exceeding 8 pages in English (2 pages for poster
abstracts and Late and Breaking Results). The title page should
contain a 100-word abstract and five specific keywords. The paper
needs to be formatted according to the Springer LNCS guidelines
[2]. 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 the URL [2]. 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 2006) are
handled and reviewed by the respecitve session chairs. For more
information please refer to the ParSim website [1].

Additionally, submission of two page abstracts for the special session
Late and Breaking Results is possible up to three weeks before the
event. These submissions will be reviewed by the General and Program
Chairs only. The chosen contributions will not appear in the
proceedings, but will be published on the web site.

All accepted submissions are expected to be presented at the
conference by one of the authors, which requires registration for the
conference.

CONFERENCE VENUE

The conference will be held in Bonn, Germany, the former capital of
Germany, an attractive and relaxed city at the Rhine, 30km south of
Cologne, frequent host to international conferences in science and
politics. The conference will take place at the Wissenschaftszentrum,
which is part of the Deutsches Museum (of technology) in Bonn.

Bonn is an ideal starting point for exploring the romantic Rhine
valley, Roman relics in the museums of Cologne and Bonn, or recent
German history in the Haus der Geschichte. Bonn was also the
birthplace of Ludwig van Beethoven, and the annual Beethoven Fest will
take place in the days during the meeting. The Rheinisches
Landesmuseum in Bonn exhibits the famous Neandertal skull, which will
be highlighted in the Roots exhibition during the conference.

Bonn is reachable by plane to the Cologne-Bonn Airport (with express
bus to downtown Bonn) or Frankfurt Airport (high-speed train in about
half-an-hour to Siegburg/Bonn, tram to downtown Bonn from
Siegburg). There are excellent train connections from all of Europe
either to Bonn central station or Siegburg/Bonn. Cologne is reachable
by local train in about 30 minutes.
