[Mpi-forum] Dates for March Meeting

Hi all,

The dates for our meeting in March had been set after the September meeting to March 3-6 and we declared those as final a few weeks after that.

However, Rich sent me email today pointing out the following conflict:

> It turns out that the March MPI Forum meeting end up right on top of the OpenSHMEM workshop, on the other side of the country.  I expect this conflict will impact those in the RMA working group.  Do you want to look into possibly moving the Forum forward or back by a week ?  I am guessing it is easier for us to move than for the OpenSHMEM meeting, given the numbers of people involved.

Moving it a week later doesn't work (due to some already scheduled DOE meetings), but a week earlier could work. We did, however, already fix the March dates so people may have already tickets. Could you please let me know if this is the case for any of you? Also, for the RMA group - how much of a conflict is this and will this reduce attendance drastically?

In general, I am hesitant to switch meeting dates after they have been fixed, but if it is advantageous for the meeting and no one would be negatively impacted (and we would need pretty much unanimous consensus), we can take this into considerations.
