Birds-of-a-Feather Session
Wednesday,  12:15PM - 01:15PM
Room 14
With the advent of peta-scale computing, the Open MPI community takes the challenge of extreme scalability very seriously. As part of the software stack that powered Los Alamos's RoadRunner machine to achieve a petaflop several months ago, several "extreme scalability" features were developed and added to the production code base. A team effort of open source development spanning research, academia, and industry was responsible for the historic achievement. Come hear how we achieved the petaflop, where Open MPI has been, where we're going, and how you can join us. The meeting will consist of three parts: 1. Members of the Open MPI core development team will present the current status of Open MPI. 2. Discussion of The Petaflop. 3. Discuss the Open MPI roadmap, to include possible future directions for Open MPI, and actively soliciting feedback from real-world MPI users and ISVs with MPI-based products (please bring your suggestions!).
