J. Träff:
"History and Development of MPI: the Message-Passing Interface";
Talk: CSE Day KTH Stockholm, Stockholm, Sweden (invited); 2012-11-21.

English abstract:
MPI, the Message-Passing Interface, has, for better or worse, for a
considerable number of years been the de facto programming interface
for large scale scientific computing. In this talk we will examine
some of the reasons why this has happened, focusing on some of the
salient features of the MPI standard that has contributed to its
usefulness and longevity. The talk will do so by also looking into
the long and perhaps not so well-known history of the development of
MPI, will and conclude with an outlook on the recently announced MPI 3.0 version of the standard.
