Speaker: Ken Raffenetti

MPICH is a widely used, open-source implementation of the message passing interface (MPI) standard. It has been ported to many platforms and used by several vendors and research groups as the basis for their own MPI implementations. This session discusses the current development activity with MPICH, including a close collaboration with teams at Intel. We showcase preparing MPICH-derived implementations for deployment on upcoming supercomputers like Aurora (from the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility), which is based on the Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor and Intel® Omni-Path Architecture (Intel® OPA).
