Call for submissions

The call for submissions is now closed.

EuroMPI 2016 is organised by EPCC at The University of Edinburgh, in cooperation with SIGHPC.

The aim of this conference is to bring together all of the stakeholders involved in developments and applications related to the Message Passing Interface (MPI). As the preeminent meeting for users, developers and researchers to interact and discuss new developments and applications of message-passing parallel computing, the annual  meeting has a long, rich tradition.

Contributors are invited to submit through the EasyChair submission system at: CLOSED


Pubilcation of paperswill be through the ACM digital library through ICPS. The best papers of the conference will be considered for inclusion in a special issue of Parallel Computing (Impact Factor 1.511).

Background and topics

EuroMPI 2016 will continue to focus on benchmarks, tools, parallel I/O, fault tolerance, and parallel applications using MPI, enhancements and extensions to MPI, and alternative interfaces for high-performance homogeneous/heterogeneous/hybrid systems. Through the presentation of contributed papers, poster presentations and invited talks, attendees will have the opportunity to share ideas and experiences and to contribute to the improvement and furthering of message-passing and related parallel programming paradigms. In addition to the main conference’s technical program, one-day or half-day workshops will be held.

Topics of interest for the meeting include, but are not limited to:

  • Shortcomings of MPI, alternatives to MPI and reasons for choosing not to use MPI for high-performance computing.
  • MPI implementation issues and improvements, including extensions to MPI, towards exascale computing, such as many-cores, GPGPU, and heterogeneous architectures.
  • Hybrid and heterogeneous programming using MPI and interoperability with other interfaces.
  • Interaction between message-passing software and hardware, in particular new high performance architectures.
  • MPI support for data-intensive parallel applications.
  • New MPI-IO mechanisms and I/O stack optimizations.
  • Fault tolerance and error handling in message-passing implementations and systems.
  • Performance evaluation for MPI and MPI based applications.
  • Automatic performance tuning of MPI applications and implementations.
  • Verification of message passing applications and protocols.
  • Applications using message-passing, in particular in Computational Science and Scientific Computing.
  • Parallel algorithms and scalable communication patterns in the message-passing paradigm.
  • New programming paradigms implemented over MPI, like hierarchical programming and global address spaces.
  • MPI parallel programming and application performance for cloud computing.

Submission instructions

Contributors are invited to submit through the EasyChair submission system at: CLOSED

There are 5 categories of submission - please select the category appropriate to your submission.
Please take note of the following instructions for each submission category.

Full paper

  • A "full paper" must be at least 5 pages in ACM SIGHPC format. There is no page limit. Use the templates provided at:

Short paper

  • A "short paper" must be no more than 4 pages in ACM SIGHPC format. Use the templates provided at:
  • Can include work that is not yet mature enough for a full paper.


  • For a "poster" please provide an extended abstract of approximately 300-500 words in any format.
  • Can include work that is not yet mature for a full paper.
  • If requried, additional material (e.g. pictures) can be submitted under 'Supplements'. Please note that the file extension must be zip - please name your file

White paper

  • A "white paper" is intended for submissions from industry. They can be of any length and in any format.
  • Accepted white papers will be published on the EuroMPI website but not in the proceedings of the conference.

Tutorial - now closed

  • For a "tutorial" please provide a short document that answers the following points:
    • Topics covered and insights offered
    • Relevance and appeal for the EuroMPI audience
    • Content level (% beginner, % intermediate, % advanced)
    • Outline, half-day/full-day, % hands-on
    • Presentation history and teaching/speaking experience of the presenters
    • For “hands-on” tutorials, evidence that demos or live exercises have been thoroughly tested
  • Submitting samples of visual aids via a zip file upload using the Supplements field is strongly encouraged.

For all submission categories:

  • The abstract field in the submission form is limited to 500 characters. Should your submission be accepted, your abstract will be used for the online program.
  • NB: overlap/copy-and-paste between the abstract field and the abstract portion of your submission is expected and encouraged.
  • The tweet field is optional. Should your submission be accepted, your tweet will be used to advertise your submission.
  • NB: This field is not limited in length but it will be truncated to 131 characters and the " #EuroMPI" hash-tag will be added.
  • We encourage authors of all types of submission to submit optional supplements and auxiliary materials to enhance the quality of their submission and to improve the opportunity for scientific reproducibility.
  • All extra files that are relevant to the submission can be submitted. For example, you might supply your source code, input data-sets, output result-sets and the details of post-processing analysis needed for full reproducibility.
  • For more information about supplements and auxiliary material, please refer to section 11 of the ACM ICPS instructions at:
  • Full papers and short papers must be formatted according to double-column ACM ICPS proceedings style. The usage of LaTeX for preparation of the initial submission as well as the camera-ready version is strongly recommended. Style files can be found at
  • All contributions will be fully peer reviewed by the program committee.

Journal special issue

The best papers of the conference will be considered for inclusion in a special issue of Parallel Computing (Impact Factor 1.511).
