This post is primarily directed at people in the UK.

EPSRC UK (Engineering and Physical Sciences
Research Council) issued HPC Software
Development Call for 2010/11. From their
	"This call invites proposals for
	High Performance Computing (HPC)
	software development to enable
	science and engineering."

For full details see:


I indend to draft a proposal for this call.
I'm particularly interested in making
HPC on FreeBSD ia64 a reality.

Briefly, I want to propose development
of an optimising MPI/OpenMP C/c++/Fortran
compiler for a fbsd/ia64 cluster environment,
probably based on llvm/clang. 

If you are in UK academia and want to participate,
or if you are in business and might consider
supporting a proposal of this sort
(e.g. a letter of support) please get in touch  

If you have other FreeBSD based
ideas suitable for this call - I'd also
love to hear.
