MPI Forum update
INTERTWinE continues to be actively engaged in relevant standards body meetings. Dan Holmes (EPCC, University of Edinburgh) attended the most recent MPI Forum meeting in Portland, Oregon.
During this meeting, he tells us, the “Persistent Collectives” proposal began the formal ratification procedure, the “Sessions” proposal took a step forward, but the “Fault Tolerance” saga took a step side-ways.
