Congratulations to Dr. Frank Mueller and his former student, alumnus Micheal Noeth (MS ’06).
Their paper entitled “Scalable Compression and Replay of Communication Traces in Massively
 Parallel Environments
"has been selected for the Best Paper Award in the Software track of the IEEE International Parallel & Distributed Processing Symposium.
The paper introduces intra- and inter-node compression techniques of MPI events and present results of our implementation for BlueGene/L. It also discuss its impact on communication tuning
and beyond. This has implications for the speed of applications and also the communication of modules within the application.
