The Message Passing Interface: On the Road to MPI 4.0 and Beyond


Authors: Dr. Martin Schulz (Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory)

BP Abstract: The MPI Forum, the standardization body for the Message Passing Interface (MPI), recently released version MPI 3.1, which features minor improvements and corrections over MPI 3.0. The focus now shifts to work on the next major version, MPI 4.0, which includes initiatives for fault tolerance, improved support for hybrid programming models and application hints to MPI libraries to enable optimizations. In this BOF, we will discuss changes in MPI 3.1 and highlight details behind the new initiatives for MPI 4.0, seek user community feedback, and continue our active discussion with the HPC community on features and priorities for MPI.
