XPRESS Interfaces Meeting- January 23-24 2014

In order to satisfy the requirements of the XPRESS project, LSU hosted an interfaces meeting focused on defining the functional, semantic, and structural requirements of the HPX runtime system.  The meeting began with focused talks around the needs of the runtime system’s functional components.  This lead into a round of discussions in which we began to develop a firm conceptual framework of the system.  The goal of this meeting is to lay the groundwork for producing an internal API to ensure proper parallel development.

Notes from the meeting are posted below:
