*Future of MPI RMA Workshop (FoRMA'22)*


The MPI RMA Working Group is organizing a virtual workshop aimed at 
gathering input from users and implementors of MPI RMA with past 
experiences and ideas for improvements, as well as hardware vendors to 
discuss future developments of high-performance network hardware 
relevant to MPI RMA. The goal is to evaluate the current design of MPI 
RMA, to learn from the current state of practice, and to start the 
process of rethinking the design of one-sided communication in the MPI 

The workshop will be held entirely virtual on *June 15 & 16* and the 
results and contributions will be combined into a joint white paper.

*Call for Participation*

We encourage everyone interested in one-sided communication models in 
general and MPI RMA in particular to join this two day workshop and 
contribute to its success through questions and comments. We encourage a 
lively and open exchange of ideas and discussions between the speakers 
and the audience. Registration for the workshop is available at 
https://mpiwg-rma.github.io/forma22/ and used to distribute the 
connection information. Please direct any questions to 
schuchart at icl.utk.edu.

*Call for Short Talks*

We are seeking input from users of MPI RMA willing to share their 
experiences, results, and lessons learned in short talks of 10-15 
minutes. No stand-alone publications are required. In particular, the 
following topics for contributions are of interest:

- Successful and unsuccessful attempts of using MPI RMA to improve the 
communication efficiency of applications and middle-ware;
- Challenges in implementing and porting applications and middle-ware on 
top of MPI RMA;
- Features that are missing from MPI RMA.

If interested, please send a short email with the title of the talk to 
schuchart at icl.utk.edu.
