Hi all,

We need to decide on the MPI Forum dates and locations for next year. For the US dates (assuming we stick with the usual rotation), the following dates would fit our normal rhythm:

Spring: 2/26 to 3/1
Summer: 6/4 to 6/7
Winter: 12/3 to 12/6

From what I can see, this stays clear of most typical major conflicts - please take a look at the dates an let me know if there are any other conflicts that I have missed. Also, please let me know if you/your organization is willing to host one of the meetings.

As for the Fall meeting, the goal is to have the MPI Forum along with EuroMPI, which will be in Barcelona/Spain and the current plan is to (for the first time) coordinate with the OpenMP community (i.e., their user meeting OpenMPCon, their academic workshop Iwomp and their standardization face to face meeting). In particular, the following dates are currently proposed:

- 9/20-9/22 (Thu-Sat)
- 9/23 (Sun) EuroMPI Workshops
- 9/24-9/26 (Mon-Wed) EuroMPI and OpenMPCon
- 9/27-9/28 (Thu-Fri) Iwomp
- 10/1 to 10/5 (Mon-Fri) OpenMP standardization meeting

For MPI alone, this is similar to our usual schedule, but it allows everyone to also attend the OpenMP events, if they would like to.

Any comments on this or alternate suggestions?
