*1st Future of MPI RMA Workshop (FoRMA'22)*


The MPI RMA Working Group is organizing a workshop aimed at gathering 
inputs from users and implementors of MPI RMA with past experiences and 
ideas for improvements, as well as hardware vendors to discuss future 
developments of high-performance network hardware relevant to MPI RMA. 
The goal is to evaluate the current design of MPI RMA, to learn from the 
current state of practice, and to start the process of rethinking the 
design of one-sided communication in the MPI standard.

The workshop will be held entirely virtual on *June 16 & 17* and the 
results and contributions will be combined into a joint white paper.

*Call for Short Talks*

We are seeking input from users of MPI RMA willing to share their 
experiences, results, and lessons learned in short talks of 10-15 
minutes. No stand-alone publications are required. In particular, the 
following topics for contributions are of interest:

- Successful and unsuccessful attempts of using MPI RMA to improve the 
communication efficiency of applications and middle-ware;
- Challenges in implementing and porting applications and middle-ware on 
top of MPI RMA;
- Features that are missing from MPI RMA.

If interested, please send a short email with the title of the talk 
toschuchart at icl.utk.edu.

*Call for Participation*

We encourage everyone interested in one-sided communication models in 
general and MPI RMA in particular to join this two day workshop and 
contribute to its success through questions and comments. We encourage a 
lively and open exchange of ideas and discussions between the speakers 
and the audience. The connections information will be posted before the 
workshop athttps://mpiwg-rma.github.io/forma22/. Please direct any
