Greetings OFIWG'ers.  It has been suggested that 2017 would be a good year to re-engage with the SC Technical Program.  I agree.  Here are the three basic areas where we could choose to engage.  The deadline for a workshop proposal is coming up soon, at SC15 we presented both a Tutorial and a BoF.  For reference, I am attaching the submission materials.

Please speak up if a) you think it is a good idea, and b) you are willing to be part of the effort.  For my part, I'm willing to help pull the submission(s) together, and/or contribute in any way.

  1.  Workshops<http://sc17.supercomputing.org/submitters/workshops/> (Sun/Mon/Fri):  SUBMISSION DEADLINE is FEBRUARY 7.

"SC includes full- and half-day workshops that complement the overall Technical Program events, with the goal of expanding the knowledge base of practitioners and researchers in a particular subject area. These workshops provide a focused, in-depth venue for presentations, discussion and interaction. Workshop proposals were peer-reviewed academically with a focus on submissions that inspire deep and interactive dialogue in topics of interest to the HPC community."

  1.  Tutorials<http://sc17.supercomputing.org/submitters/tutorials/> (Sunday, Monday, full day or half day).  Submission deadline is April 17

"As part of its Technical Program, SC16 will host a collection of tutorials that offer attendees the opportunity to learn from, and interact with, knowledgeable and frequent users of high performance computing (HPC), networking, storage, and analysis. The SC tutorial program is one of the largest available at any computing conference, and consistently rates as one of the most popular and valuable parts of the Technical Program."

  1.  BoFs<http://sc17.supercomputing.org/submitters/birds-of-a-feather/> Submission deadline is July 31.

"The Birds-of-a-Feather (BOF) sessions are among the most interactive, popular, and well-attended sessions of the SC Conference Series. The BOF sessions provide a non-commercial, dynamic venue for conference attendees to openly discuss current topics of focused mutual interest within the HPC community with a strong emphasis on audience-driven discussion, professional networking and grassroots participation."

Is there interest in pursuing either/all of the above for SC17?  The caution is that these things are a lot of work, but the payback is huge.
