Many thanks to the crew at LBL for hosting my talks yesterday.  There were many insightful questions and comments throughout both talks.

Here’s the slides from my first talk, entitled “(Open) MPI, Parallel Computing, Life, the Universe, and Everything.”  This is a general MPI/Open MPI talk, where I discussed the current state of Open MPI, and then talked in detail about two of Open MPI’s newest features: the MPI-3 “MPI_T” tools interface, and Open MPI’s flexible process affinity system.

Some of the slides — particularly, those about the flexible affinity system — were also presented in Madrid at EuroMPI’13 a few months ago.

Here’s the video for my talk; the standalone slides are below:
