Abstract : In this period, we continued to develop our prototype enhanced MPI tools. We also began to consider better integration of our approach designed with standard MPI in order to make it more attractive to end users. The effort in this period conforms to the approach laid out in our proposal for the core project. The work in this quarter primarily addresses objectives e. 4.1, e. 4.2, and e. 4.5 in our work plan. In addition to the technical work, we attended a number of meetings in relation to the work in this project: (1) In April, Dr. Andrew Sherman, Dr. Robert Bjornson, and Dr. Nicholas Carriero presented a briefing at Darpa headquarters to Dr. Jose Munoz and two of his colleagues on the status of our MPI work. (2) In May, Dr. Sherman and Dr. Sachit Malhotra met with Darpa contractors at Lincoln Laboratory in Lexington, Massachusetts to discuss possible work involving the use of MPI and the enhanced MPI tools developed in this project for some applications in real-time STAP processing. We anticipate that a suitable arrangement will be negotiated to move forward with work in this area. In addition, at the suggestion of David Martinez at Lincoln Laboratory, we have submitted a presentation for the High-Performance Embedded Computing Workshop to be held at Lincoln Laboratory in September. (3) In June, Dr. Daya Atapattu represented Scientific Computing Associates, Inc. at a meeting of the MPI/RealTime Forum in Lexington, Massachusetts. He attended the meeting to help us assess the fit of our work with the proposed MPI/RT standard.
