LLVM Social in Salt Lake City, UT (Nov. 14th)?

Hi everyone,

On Monday, November 14, 2016 the LLVM in HPC workshop will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah (in conjunction with the SC16 conference). For last year's workshop, which was in Austin, we held an LLVM social the evening of the workshop, and I think that turned out really well. If you'll be in Salt Lake City and are interested in attending an LLVM social on the evening of November 14th, please let me know. Also, if you're familiar with the area and have suggestions on where we should go, please share.

Thanks again,
Hal

P.S. If that date does not work for you, but some night Tuesday-Thursday would, please let me know that too.

Monday is the Gala and depending on the timing may conflict. Tues/Wed
is typically other parties, like the Cray thing, Beowulf bash and
again depends on the time. Thurs evening typically doesn't have
anything special going on because everyone is too tired or left.

This is a good point. Unfortunately, Thursday evening is the technical program reception, and that might be a worse conflict. The Gala is scheduled for 7-9pm. Perhaps we could schedule the social to it only overlaps partially. I assume people who want to be at the Gala want to be there at the start? Last year we started the social at 6pm, so maybe that would work regardless? I'm open to suggestions.

Thanks again,

If I had to weigh priorities the gala will certainly take precedent
and I'll personally be there until the end. For me personally it's a
unique networking event and more than just food.

Starting at 6pm on Tues or Wed and finishing not too late would
probably allow people to do both llvm social and a party.

Maybe get a sample of people to RSVP and create a doodle so we can see
what others say and when they might be available.

Hi again,
