I like SIAM-PP instead of EuroMPI because I am far more likely to attend
the former, and I shared the observation about how many folks were in Paris
for PP16.

However, it will likely hurt EuroMPI, because some institutions' travel
policies may not let folks attend foreign conferences that are not
top-tier, whereas attending an industry working group of which the
institution is a voting member is a compelling reason to travel.

It might be good to poll people on whether moving the MPI Forum decreases
the likelihood that they or their colleagues will submit to EuroMPI.
