High Performance Computing Networking

Now that we’re just starting into the MPI-3.0 era, what’s next?

The MPI Forum is still having active meetings.  What is left to do?  Isn’t MPI “done”?

Nope.  MPI is an ever-changing standard to meet the needs of HPC.  And since HPC keeps changing, so does MPI.

The next MPI Forum meeting is in about two weeks at the Microsoft facility in Chicago, for example.  The Forum is generally working on two things:

I should say that both of those names haven’t been finally settled yet (“MPI-3.1″ and “MPI-4.0″, but I’m thinking it’s pretty safe to assume that that is what they will be called).

Here’s a few of the major topics that we’ll be discussing in Chicago:

You can see that there’s still quite a bit of activity occurring.  Many discussions are forward-looking to exascale.  Many discussions are related to real-world usage of first MPI-3.0 implementations.  And so on.

Let your local MPI Forum rep know of any new suggestions, ideas, and concerns that you have.
