The objective of this BoF is to expand upon what was presented in the morning UPC track and to share other relevant UPC information within CUG.

Everyone interested in open discussions on the Cray XD1 meet here. Once objectives are established, we will split into two groups (see below). Cray Inc. liaisons will be on hand.
