OK, here’s what I’ve heard back from Pallavi (IBM) regarding availability of the folks from IBM relevant for the UG meeting. In square brackets you’ll note the known conflicts on that date.

What I’m asking for here is, if you know of any other conflicts on a given day, please let me know by responding via email. Knowing what the conflicts are will help people vote for a preferred day.

Please to not respond via email with a vote for a day, I’ll setup a poll for that, so I can quickly tally answers. I value your feedback, but don’t want to tally a poll via email :-)

1. All Day Sunday November 15th [Tutorial Day]
2. Monday November 16th [PDSW Day, possible conflict with DDN UG —email out to DDN to confirm]
3. Friday November 20th  [Start later in the day]

I’ll wait a few days to hear back and get the poll out next week.

Best,
Kristy

>> 
>> I am also excited about the one day GPFS US UG Meeting at SC’15.  However the SC’15 schedule is already packed!  http://sc15.supercomputing.org/schedule
>> 
>> I would like to have the discussion regarding the schedule of this meeting opened up to the mailing list to help ensure that it meets the needs of those planning to attend as much as possible.
>> 
>> Scheduling this one day meeting is going to be very difficult, and some issues I foresee are the following:
>> 1) It will be hard to avoid conflicts with scheduled SC'15 sessions/tutorials/workshops, and also the other user group meetings, such as the DDN User Group and the expected full day Intel session (which I guess will be on the Sunday, Nov 15th?)
>> 2) Have people already booked their flights and hotels such that attending the meeting on the Saturday before or Saturday after the conference is not feasible?
>> 2) Will IBM presenters be available on the Saturday before or after?
>> 3) Is having the full day meeting on the Saturday before or after too much to ask given how long the conference already is?
>> 3) Would we rather have the GPFS US UG meeting usurp the last day of the conference that is sometimes considered not worth attending?
>> 4) Do attendees have other obligations to their booths at the show that would prevent them from attending the Saturday before, or the Friday Nov 20th,  or possibly Saturday Nov 21st?
>> 
>> As for me, I would prefer to have this first SC'15 US UG meeting on the Friday, Nov 20th, starting at roughly 1PM (after lunch) and maybe have it go for 6 hours.  Or if we still want/need a full day, then start it at 9AM on Friday.
