FINALLY!  The Baltimore Washing Beowulf Users Group is having a meeting!
We've got a place, date, time, and topic.


Tuesday October 16 3:00 pm


Panel Discussion: Clusters and non MPI programs

We all know how to run an MPI program or two on a cluster, with a
reasonable user interface. But what about non MPI programs?  Do we
have an embarrassingly easy way to run embarrassingly parallel
problems? Is it possible to use the wide variety of tools for
non MPI problems on the wide of styles of clusters?

Confirmed panelists:

Don Becker, CTO, Scyld
Greg Lindahl, CTO, Conservative Computer
other panelists wanted; contact lindahl at

The address is:

7501 Greenway Center Drive
Suite 1000 (10th floor)
Greenbelt, MD 20770, phone

Mapquest does a reasonable job of directions.

from the Beltway, take the BWPkwy (295) North.  Take the first exit
onto MD-193 towards Greenbelt/NASA Goddard. At the bottom of the ramp
you will turn left onto MD193, and then IMMEDIATELY right onto Hanover
Parkway.  Take the next right onto Greenway Center Drive and the
Logicon building is near the end of the road on the left.

Logicon/FDC has graciously opened their auditorium in their Greenbelt
facility for this meeting, and future ones if this is convenient for
everyone.  While it's not right on the Metro, I will offer to run a
van from Metro at 2:40PM if that helps some folks get there.  Just
don't wait until the last minute to tell me, as it is a 15-passenger
van and I don't usually drive it unless I know I need to (also, I can
have the kids clean it up ;-).


We need ideas for speakers and topics. If you can help out, please
contact me at drhoades at
