This paper reports the design and implementation of Open- SHMEM over MPI using new one-sided communication features in MPI- 3, which include not only new functions (e.g. remote atomics) but also a newmemory model that is consistent with that of SHMEM.We use a new, non-collective MPI communicator creation routine to allow SHMEM collectives to use their MPI counterparts. Finally, we leverage MPI sharedmemory windows within a node, which allows direct (load-store) access. Performance evaluations are conducted for shared-memory and InfiniBand conduits using microbenchmarks.
