Recent Advances in Parallel Virtual Machine and Message Passing Interface

Buy
Thirteen years after the publication of the first MPI (message passing interface) specification and 17 years after the first published paper on PVM(parallel virtual machine), MPI and PVM have emerged as standard programming environments and continue to be the development environment of choice for a large variety of applications, hardware platforms, and usage scenarios. There are many reasons behind this success and one of them is certainly the strength of its community.

EuroPVM/MPI is a flagship conference for this community, established as the premier international forum for researchers, users, and vendors to present their latest advances in MPI and PVM. EuroPVM/MPI is the forum where fundamental aspects of message passing, implementations, standards, benchmarking, performance, and new techniques are presented and discussed by researchers, developers and users from academia and industry.

EuroPVM/MPI 2007 was organized by INRIA in Paris, September 29 to October 3, 2007. This was the 14th issue of the conference, which takes place each year at a different European location. Previous meetings were held in Bonn (2006), Sorrento (2005), Budapest (2004), Venice (2003), Linz (2002), Santorini (2001), Balatonf¨ured (2000), Barcelona (1999), Liverpool (1998), Krakow (1997), Munich (1996), Lyon (1995), and Rome (1994).

The main topics of the meeting were collective operations, one-sided communication, parallel applications using the message passing paradigm, MPI standard extensions or evolution, fault tolerance, formal verification of MPI processes, MPI-I/O, performance evaluation, and hierarchical infrastructures (parallel computers and Grids).

For this year’s conference, the Program Committee Co-chairs invited six outstanding researchers to present lectures on different aspects of the message passing paradigm: Tony Hey, who co-authored the first draft for the MPI standard, presented “MPI: Past, Present and Future,” Al Geist, one of the authors of PVM, presented “Sustained PetaScale, the Next MPI Challenge,” Satoshi Matsuoka, a pioneer of the Grid Computing, presented “The Tsubame Cluster Experience,” Ewing Lusk, one of the leaders of MPICH, presented “New and Old Tools and Programming Models for High-Performance Computing,” George Bosilca, one of the leading members of OpenMPI, presented “The X-Scale Challenge,” and Bernd Mohr, a pioneer in performance analysis tools for Parallel Computing, presented “To Infinity and Beyond!?”.

In addition to the conference main track, the meeting featured the sixth edition of the special session “ParSim 2007 – Current Trends in Numerical Simulation for Parallel Engineering Environments.” The conference also included three tutorials, one on “Using MPI-2: A Problem-Based Approach” by William Gropp and Ewing Lusk, the second by Stephen Siegel on “Verifying Parallel Programs with MPI-Spin,” and the third by George Bosilca and Julien Langou on “Advanced MPI Programming.”

Engineering a Compiler, Second Edition
Engineering a Compiler, Second Edition

The practice of compiler construction changes continually, in part because the designs of processors and systems change. For example, when we began to write Engineering a Compiler (eac) in 1998, some of our colleagues questioned the wisdom of including a chapter on instruction scheduling because out-of-order execution threatened to make...
