FTG members present automated approach for characterizing communication patterns at HPDC'15

Three Future Technologies Group members recently presented 'Automated Characterization of Parallel Application Communication Patterns' at the 24th International ACM Symposium on High-Performance and Distributed Computing (HPDC'15) in Portland, Oregon in June, 2015.  The paper describes an approach that uses automated search and a library of communication patterns to identify and parameterize a collection of patterns that best explains an MPI application's observed communication behavior.  Philip Roth presented the work on behalf of his co-authors, Jeremy Meredith and Jeffrey Vetter.
