IXPUG Announcements 

IXPUG has new officers! We are pleased to welcome our new President, Michael Lysaght of the Irish Centre for High-End Computing (ICHEC), and Vice President, David Martin of Argonne National Laboratory. We are deeply grateful to our outgoing leadership, Richard Gerber of NERSC/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and Thomas Steinke of Zuse Institute Berlin, for their efforts in getting IXPUG "off the ground" and making it a success. Melyssa Fratkin of TACC will continue as IXPUG Secretary for one more year.
