Please feel free to edit your agenda items. If you want to add an agenda item, go ahead but please let Rob Armstrong know. If it seems that your item has disappeared (and we didn't discuss it) look harder, it may have been rearranged into a different slot. If it still doesn't seem to be there, someone (probably Rob) deleted it by mistake. Let Rob know.

Newcomers to the CCA Forum are strongly encouraged to present a short introduction to their research and interests as they relate to the CCA.

Enabling efficient and flexible coupling of parallel scientific applications using Seine
Li (Lily) Zhang, TASSL, Rutgers University

Babel 0.11 and Roadmap to 1.0
Gary Kumfert, LLNL

Provides an overview of all the new features and changes in Babel 0.11.0. It will also review a bit of Babel history and discuss changes in store as we run up to Babel 1.0

Babel RMI
James Leek, LLNL

Babel Remote Method Invocation (RMI) is now complete and ready to use. This talk will cover the using Babel RMI to turn your applications into distributed applications. There will be a separate BOF on Friday for folks wanting to wrap their own networking protocol of choice in the Babel RMI API. Babel 0.11.0 ships with a simple TCP/IP-based implementation but we welcome contributions for future distros.

Integrating Babel into XCAT
Madhusudhan Govindaraju, Binghamton Univ.
This talk will present plans for incorporating BabelRMI into XCAT-C++. It will discuss the design changes that will be needed in XCAT-C++ to use SIDL, Babel (Remote) Objects, Babel API for remote object creation, remote method invocation, code generation, etc.

Converting from (D)Cxx to UCxx
Thomas Epperly, LLNL

The original C++ binding to Babel is now renamed DCxx (D for Deprecated, hint, hint). It will not be present in the upcoming Babel 1.0 release, and it does not enjoy the full set of features available with all other 0.11 bindings. UCxx will be the default 1.0 C++ binding and now is the time to start converting all the existing C++ code to use it. This talk will focus
on what has to be done to effect this transition in your own Impls.

Prototype Specification for CCA PCI
Jay Larson, ANL

A unilateral draft specification for CCA Parallel Coupling Infrastructure (PCI) is offered, SIDL and all. It looks a bit--but not entirely--like MCT.
