Data Parallel gossiping is a specialization type of the gossiping problem. In data-parallel gossiping on grids each point has a message to distribute to all other points in the grid. This is the same as in traditional gossiping. However, in traditional gossiping the calls which may be placed at a given time by any given cell are usually different for each cell based on the current time step.
In data-parallel gossiping all calls placed at a given time are in the same direction to a point at some distance from the calls source. Again variants of this model exit. In this case the variation is on the distance between the sender and the point to which it sends its message, and whether a point can send only or also receive from another sender ( this is not the same as the F model, since a point may receive from a different point that the one to which it is sending).
