Hello everyone,

The PMIx community is pleased to announce the second-quarter meeting of the Administrative Steering Committee (ASC) of the PMIx standardization body for 2020. 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 goal of this meeting is to read, discuss, and vote on modifications to the PMIx standard, discuss potential modifications or new ideas for the standard, welcome formal participation in the governance body from new, interested groups, and learn of community progress with respect to PMIx. As such we are calling for broad participation from the parallel and distributed computing community to participate in this meeting.

Meeting information:
 * Date: April 15, 2020
 * Time: 11 am - 5 pm US Central Time
 * Location: Virtual (online) Meeting (see agenda link for details)
