SC is the International Conference for
High Performance Computing, Networking,
Storage and Analysis

SCHEDULE: NOV 12-18, 2011

When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your own schedule to guide you through the week.

You can also create your personal schedule on the SC11 app (Boopsie) on your smartphone. Simply select a session you want to attend and "add" it to your plan. Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.

Open MPI State of the Union

SESSION: Open MPI State of the Union

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 12:15PM - 1:15PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Jeff Squyres, George Bosilca


MPI continues to evolve, both as a standard and as software implementations. The members of the Open MPI project are both driving the evolution of MPI as well as pushing the boundaries of what is possible in extreme computing environments. The K supercomputer validates this approach: a Fujitsu team made local modifications to Open MPI and achieved over 8 petaflops. But at the same time, much effort is put enabling newcomers to HPC to have an MPI that "just works" and is featurized to support both a wide variety of environments. Open MPI community's unique blend of academics, researchers, system administrators, and vendors provide many different viewpoints for what make an MPI implementation successful. Work is ongoing in many areas that are directly applicable to real-world HPC applications and users. Join us at the BOF to hear a state of the Union for Open MPI. New contributors are welcome!
