An informal meeting to talk about what's happening with PTP, demo some cool stuff (maybe I'll bring some hardware along again), and work out what new and exciting features we're going to add.

Greg Watson is team leader of the Cluster Research Team in the Advanced Computing Laboratory at Los Alamos National Laboratory, and is project leader for the Eclipse Parallel Tools Platform Project. His research interests focus on tools for parallel computers, program debugging, distributed computing and operating systems. He has contributed to the award winning Clustermatic software suite, a Linux-based cluster management system, and is maintainer of the PPC port of the open-source LinuxBIOS project.

Beth R. Tibbitts is a 28+ year veteran of software development in IBM, including APL and LISP, both underdog languages and environments, and eventually C++ and Java. Beth worked on Expert Systems tools in her early days at IBM Research. She then worked in debugger development. Beth wrote Java book reviews and articles for the IBM developerworks site in its earlier days. She developed software in Java for IBM "Reinventing Education" grants, for training/evaluation of ADHD children, and for making web sites more accessible to persons with disabilities. She became a fan of Eclipse a few years ago and has written tools for programmers and users including tools for porting C and C++ programs to Linux, and now in the area of High Performance and High Productivity Tools. Beth is a committer on the Parallel Tools Platform (PTP) Eclipse project.

Wyatt Spear has been employed at the University of Oregon's Performance Research Lab since 2004. His work there has focused on tools and utilities for the TAU performance analysis system. He holds a B.S. and M.S. in Computer and Information Science from the University of Oregon.
