Hi all,

I thought the following call (appended) might be of interest to people on this list. Feel free to email me if you have any questions about it.


The PMIx community is pleased to announce the inaugural quarterly meeting of the Administrative Steering Committee (ASC) of the PMIx standardization body. The objective of the PMIx standard is to provide an implementation-independent specification to facilitate interaction between applications, tools, and middleware and system runtime environments. The interface focuses on supporting application launch and wire-up; supporting tools that wish to inspect, steer, and/or debug parallel applications; providing interfaces to manage dynamic workload applications, to support fault tolerance and cross-library coordination; and facilitate communication across container boundaries. The PMIx standard is governed by the ASC comprised of representatives from a wide range of research, academic, and industrial organizations. The ASC plays a critical role in shaping the evolution of this critical system interface.

The PMIx standard has recently adopted new governance rules to facilitate broader participation, and balance active innovation with interface stability. This quarterly meeting will be the first formal meeting of the ASC. The goal of this meeting is to welcome formal participation in the governance body from new, interested groups, set the groundwork for a major release of the PMIx standard, formally define the ASC membership, and hold elections for governance body positions. As such we are calling for broad participation from the parallel and distributed computing community to participate in this meeting.
