"On The Power of Structured Data in MPI";
Talk: Guest Lecture of the course: Parallel and High Performance Computing, LMU Munich,
Munich, Germany (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.
