The 21st European MPI Users’ Group Meeting, EuroMPI/AISA 2014, will be held in Kyoto, Japan, 9th – 12th September, 2014.

In addition to the main conference’s technical program, EuroMPI/ASIA 2014 is soliciting proposals for one-day or half-day workshops to be held in conjunction with the main conference.  It is intended that those workshops are aim to discuss on ongoing work and latest ideas related to applications with message passing paradigms.

The Call for Papers will be separately announced, and will also shown in the conference page.


EuroMPI is the preeminent meeting for users, developers and researchers to interact and discuss new developments and applications of message-passing parallel computing, in particular in and related to the Message Passing Interface (MPI). The annual meeting has a long, rich tradition, and has been held in European countries.  In the 21st EuroMPI, the conference venue is at Kyoto, Japan, outside of Europe.  Following past meetings, EuroMPI/ASIA 2014 will continue to focus on not just MPI, but also extensions or alternative interfaces for high-performance homogeneous/heterogeneous/hybrid systems, benchmarks, tools, parallel I/O, fault tolerance, and parallel applications using  MPI and other interfaces.  Through the presentation of contributed papers, poster presentations and invited talks, attendees will have the opportunity to share ideas and experiences to contribute to the improvement and furthering of message-passing and related parallel programming paradigms.

The organizers of accepted workshops are required to advertise the workshop and call for papers, solicit submissions, conduct the reviewing process, and decide upon the final workshop program.  Workshop proposals and further inquiries should be sent to the EuroMPI 2014 Workshops Chairs, eurompi2014-workshops@riken.jp.

The workshop proposal should include following information:

The organizers of successful workshops will be responsible for their own reviewing process, publicity (e.g., website and call for papers), and proceedings production. They will be required to closely cooperate with the Workshops Chairs and the EuroMPI 2014 local organizers to finalize all organizational details.
