Dear MPI Forum members,

# This is a notification of EXTENDED deadline — the end of March.

# We got 373 responses at the time of this writing. Thank you for your help.
# Unfortunately there are still large disparities between the number of 
answerers and the 
# Top500 list (#systems, aggregated FLOPS, …, by country). Especially the 
numbers of 
# answers from USA, Germany, UK, Ireland, Italy, Australia are still 
# I would like you to help us to distribute the following text to your 'local' 
# regardless the countries listed above.

As part of a wide-ranging effort to understand the current usage of the Message 
Passing Interface (MPI) in the development of parallel applications and to 
drive future additions to the MPI standard, an international team is seeking 
feedback from the largest possible MPI audience (past, current, and potential 
users on the globe) to obtain a better understanding of their needs and to 
understand the impact of different MPI capabilities on the development of 
distributed applications.

To obtain representative samples of the MPI community, we have prepared a 

that specifically targets all potential MPI users, including those in the 
public, education, research and engineering domains--from undergraduate and 
graduate students and postdocs to seasoned researchers and engineers.

The information gathered will be used to publish a comprehensive report of the 
different use cases and potential areas of opportunity. These results will be 
made freely available, and the raw data, the scripts to manipulate it, as well 
as the resulting analysis will be, in time, posted on github [1], while the 
curated results will be available via github pages [2].

For anyone interested in participating in the survey, we sincerely appreciate 
your feedback.  The survey is rather short (about 30 easy questions), and 
should not take more than 15 minutes to complete.  In addition to your 
participation, we would appreciate if you re-distribute this e-mail to your 
domestic/local communities.

Important Date — This survey will be closed by the end of March 2019
