"The Power of Structured Data in MPI";
Talk: The University of Texas at Austin, Prof. Robert A. van de Geijn,
Austin, Texas (invited);
The ability to communicate arbitrarily (statically) structured data
via the derived datatype mechanism is a unique feature of MPI (the
Message-Passing Interface). We believe that the power of derived
datatypes, in particular in combination with the collective
communication operations is still not fully explored, neither with
respect to descriptive advantages nor their potential for improved
performance. This talk will describe recent applications of MPI
derived datatypes to improve complex algorithms for collective
communication operations, and discuss open issues in the specification
and implementation of efficient, derived datatype mechanisms.
