PVM (Parallel Virtual Machine) and MPI (Message Passing Interface)
have evolved into the standard interfaces for high-performance
parallel programming in the message-passing paradigm. EuroPVM/MPI is
the most prominent meeting dedicated to the latest developments of PVM
and MPI such as new support tools, implementation and
applications using these interfaces. The EuroPVM/MPI meeting
naturally encourages discussions of new message-passing and other
parallel and distributed programming paradigms beyond MPI and PVM.

The 14th European PVM/MPI Users' Group Meeting will be a forum for
users and developers of PVM, MPI, and other message-passing
programming environments. Through the presentation of contributed papers,
vendor presentations, poster presentations and invited talks, attendees
will have the opportunity to share ideas and experiences to contribute
to the improvement and furthering of message-passing and related
parallel programming paradigms.

Topics of interest for the meeting include, but are not limited to:

 * PVM and MPI implementation issues and improvements
 * Latest extensions to PVM and MPI
 * PVM and MPI for high-performance computing, clusters
 and grid environments
 * New message-passing and hybrid parallel programming paradigms
 * Interaction between message-passing software and hardware
 * Fault tolerance in message-passing programs
 * Performance evaluation of PVM and MPI applications
 * Tools and environments for PVM and MPI
 * Algorithms using the message-passing paradigm
 * Applications in science and engineering based on message-passing

This year special emphasis will be put on large-scale issues, such as
those related to hardware and interconnect techologies, or the potential or
demonstrated  shortcomings of PVM or MPI.

As in the preceding years, the special session 'ParSim' will focus on numerical
simulation for parallel engineering environments.

EuroPVM/MPI 2007 will also hold the new 'Outstanding Papers' session
introduced in 2006, where the best papers selected by the program committee
will be presented.


Submission site: http://pvmmpi07.lri.fr/submissions

Contributors are invited to submit a full paper as a PDF (or Postscript)
document not exceeding 8 pages in English (2 pages for poster
abstracts and Late and Breaking Results). The title page should
contain an abstract of at most 100 words and five specific keywords.
The paper needs to be formatted according to the Springer LNCS guidelines
[2]. The usage of LaTeX for preparation of the contribution as well as
the submission in camera ready format is strongly recommended. Style
files can be found at the URL [2]. New work that is not yet mature for
a full paper, short observations, and similar brief announcements are
invited for the poster session. Contributions to the poster session
should be submitted in the form of a two-page abstract. All these
contributions will be fully peer reviewed by the program committee.

Submissions to the special session 'Current Trends in Numerical
Simulation for Parallel Engineering Environments' (ParSim 2007) are
handled and reviewed by the respective session chairs.
For more information please refer to the ParSim website [1].

All accepted submissions are expected to be presented at the
conference by one of the authors, which requires registration for the

In addition, selected papers of the conference, including those from
the 'Outstanding Papers' session, will be considered for publication
in a special issue of Parallel Computing in an extended format.


 * Jack Dongarra        (University of Tennessee)


 * Franck Cappello      (INRIA Futurs)
 * Thomas Herault       (Universite Paris Sud-XI / INRIA Futurs)


The conference will be held in the historical, cultural and
economic center of Paris, the capital of France.

The city, which is renowned for its neo-classical architecture,
hosts many museums and galleries and has an active nightlife. The
symbol of Paris is the 324 metre (1,063 ft) Eiffel Tower on the
banks of the Seine. Dubbed "the City of Light" (la Ville Lumiere)
since the 19th century, Paris is regarded by many as one of the most
beautiful and romantic cities in the world. It is also the most
visited city in the world with more than 30 million foreign visitors
per year. Paris is easily reachable from any European capital and
most of the large European, American and Asian cities. It is an
ideal starting point for visiting european institutes and cities.
