  abstract= "Message Passing Interface (MPI) is a popular approach to
     enable Single Process, Multiple Data (SPMD) style parallel
     computing, particularly in cluster computing environments.
     Communicating Process Architecture (CPA) Networking on the
     other hand, has been developed to enable channel
     based semantics across a communication mechanism in a
     transparent manner. However, in both cases the concept of a
     message passing infrastructure is fundamental. This paper
     compares the performance of both of these frameworks at a
     base communication level, also discussing some of
     the similarities between the two mechanisms. From the
     experiments, it can be seen that although MPI is a more
     mature technology, in many regards CPA Networking can
     perform comparably if the correct communication is used."
