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.

S05: Advanced MPI

SESSION: S05: Advanced MPI

EVENT TYPE: Tutorial

TIME: 8:30AM - 5:00PM

Presenter(s):William Gropp, Ewing (Rusty) Lusk, Robert Ross, Rajeev Thakur


MPI continues to be the dominant programming model on all large-scale parallel machines, such as IBM Blue Gene/P and Cray XE6, as well as on Linux and Windows clusters of all sizes. Another important trend is the widespread availability of multicore chips, as a result of which the individual nodes of parallel machines are increasingly multicore. This tutorial will cover several advanced features of MPI that can help users program such machines and architectures effectively. Topics to be covered include parallel I/O, multithreaded communication, one-sided communication, dynamic processes, and new features being added in MPI-3 for hybrid programming, one-sided communication, collective communication, fault tolerance, and tools. In all cases, we will introduce concepts by using code examples based on scenarios found in real applications. Attendees will leave the tutorial with an understanding of how to use these advanced features of MPI and guidelines on how they might perform on different platforms and architectures.
