Newsletter of the OpenMP ARB

---------------------------------------------------------------------
NEWSLETTER OF THE OPENMP ARB
Edition: November 2004

This is the monthly newsletter of the OpenMP Architecture Review
Board. It is based on the discussions in the OpenMP ARB conference
calls of the previous month, and on current activities in the
world of OpenMP. You can find general OpenMP-related links
at the tail of the newsletter.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

** EWOMP took place on October 18-21 in Stockholm.

** The merge of OpenMP Fortran, C, and C++ specifications is
progressing.

** There will be an OpenMP BOF at SC2004

---------------------------------------------------------------------

* EWOMP took place on October 18-21 in Stockholm.

The successful experience from last year's EWOMP is continued with a
talk session and a lab session. After a two days "conventional"
workshop part with invited and contributed talks (OMPtalks), the
opportunity of having many OpenMP experts in the fields of compilers,
tools and applications on board is utilised to let users "get their
hands dirty" and do real work in a three days hands-on lab session
(OMPlab). In parallel to the OMPlab hands-on session, there is plenty
of time for additional working groups. It is up to the participants to
ignite controversies and lively discussions about OpenMP's present and
future. The workshop web site is http://www.imit.kth.se/ewomp2004. 
Please note the following dates:

October 1  	Final camera-ready papers are due.
October 1 	End of early registration period. 
October 11 	Deadline for installing tools and applications for OMPlab

* The merge of OpenMP Fortran, C, and C++ specifications is progressing

Good progress has been made on Chapter 2, especially with regard to
semantics of DO variables, binding of regions and memory model text.
A "final draft" is now being reviewed by the committee members.  The
ARB considers a public review period desirable, as it promotes
inclusiveness and openness. Key individuals will be invited to
contribute to the review process.

* There will be an OpenMP BOF at SC2004

There will be an OpenMP BOF at SC2004 in Pittsburgh. This BOF will
take place on Wednesday, 11/10. at 5:30-7:00 PM. There will be a panel
with Kathy Yellick from Berkeley, Bill Gropp from Argonne, and Rob
Schreiber from HP, and Sanjiv Shah from Intel. The web site is:
