[ofiwg] FW: Your SC15 BOF Proposal

Greetings - This note applies to both OFI WG and DS/DA.  As you may know, two SC15 BoF proposals were submitted, essentially one from each sub group.  Both BoFs were accepted, but with the proviso that they be merged into a single BoF.  Personally, I think there is enough distinction between the two to warrant separate BoFs, but I can easily see the logic of the reviewers in requesting that they be merged.  I'm very pleased that we'll have the opportunity at SC15 to continue building the OFI community.  For what it's worth, the reviewer comments seemed unusually enthusiastic.

I've attached the two proposals for your reference in .htm format, but skeptical that they will actually come across through the mailing list.  Please let me know if you can't read these and I'll find another way to get it to you.

No action required at this time, except to say that if you are planning to be in Austin in November, please let me know and plan to participate as a BoF session leader.

Subject: Your SC15 BOF Proposal

Dear Paul,

We are delighted to accept your SC15 BOF Proposal for presentation at SC15, as a MERGED BOF.  This means we are asking you to work with submitters from a different submission to present one BOF together at SC15.  Details will be sent in a separate email.  Merging is a result of the number of submissions vs. the number of available rooms, clashing with our need to present a range of topics in the BOF sessions.  We hope you will help out by creating the merged BOF as requested.

Submission Number: bof231s1 Title: An Update on Libfabric, a new Network API for Disributed and Parallel Computing

Reviews are available on the SC submission site:


Please login to view these reviews, and kindly incorporate their suggestions as you prepare your BOF. Note that, in some cases, we have added "Committee Notes to the Authors" to let you know about any additional remarks.

We will be contacting you separately to finalize a day and time for your BOF.  

Please confirm your acceptance and intention to present your Merged BOF no later than Wednesday Sept. 23, by logging into the submission site.  After confirming, please check that your information is correctly listed as you wish it to appear in the SC15 program.  This is a hard deadline by the publications folks, we cannot grant extensions.

Please monitor your email carefully over the next few weeks, as we prepare the final scheduling of your BOF into the final program.

Thanks again for your submission. We look forward to seeing you in Austin!

Best Regards,

Karen L. Karavanic (Portland State University), SC15 BOF Chair and Karl Fuerlinger (Ludwig-Maximilians-University (LMU) ), SC15 BOF Vice Chair
