At our last meeting, we decided to set a recurring meeting time, so that participants can plan further in advance. We’ll meet up by phone the first Thursday of each month at 2:00 Pacific Time. Call-in information will be sent via the mailing list. Join us!
High-Performance Computing Community Group
This community group is focused on bringing high performance computing (HPC) to the web. In particular, we're interested in making the computing and data resources that underlie simulation science, scientific computing, and data-centric science easily accessible through web browsers. Our members are working on APIs that expose HPC resources via the web, as well as gateways and web applications that take advantage of these APIs. The major goal of this community is to accelerate the pace of development of web-based HPC applications. Recognizing that we can build on each other's work, and that a consistent approach to developing such tools can enable features that require communication across multiple computing centers, we are interested in sharing technologies and ideas.

Just a reminder that I’ve been updating the wiki meetings page with my notes on our conference calls. It’s a good place to get up to speed on what we’re discussing and what we’ve covered so far. Members are also welcome to update or augment the notes.
I’ve decided to post agendas and minutes on the wiki. See the new Meetings page.
We need to have a chair for this group, so I’ve put together a poll. Since we only have one nominee, this will be a pretty quick poll. The poll widget is too simple to let people write in a candidate, but you can add one in the comments if you like.
Let’s have our next show-and-tell/business meeting on May 15. To make life easier for those in Europe, I’d like to schedule this meeting a bit earlier in the day than last time, at 9:00 am PST. Also, we need to move forward on electing a chair for the group. I think we can take care of the nominations via email in advance of the meeting. Please send a message to the group if you wish to nominate someone or offer yourself as a nominee. Finally, if you have something to demo, please let me know directly.
The W3C announced the launch of a new community group on Big Data, which seems to me would naturally have a fair amount of overlap with HPC concerns. It seems worth connecting with them. Their site is at http://www.w3.org/community/bigdata/.
If you have something you’d like to demo at the telecon, please send me a note at email@example.com. We will have video and audio shared via WebEx.
We are planning a teleconference on March 7 at 11:00 am PST to show each other what we’ve been working on and summarize progress. I will post call-in info closer to the date.
It’s been a while since we had a meeting to share what we’ve respectively been working on. Who’s up for doing a telecon soon?
If the activities in Seattle surrounding the SC ’11 conference aren’t enough for you, you might consider hopping over to Redmond for the W3C’s first developer conference. It takes place November 15 and 16. Early bird registration runs through October 31.
