Parallel Hacker Meetings
This is a series of informal meetings of people actively working on parallel Haskell implementations, mainly GpH and Eden. Physically these meetings involve mainly people from Heriot-Watt and St Andrews Univ, with others joining in over Skype.
March 8th, 2010
Where: EM 1.58 (Mountbatten building), Heriot-Watt Univ, Edinburgh Web Map
When: 1:30 - 4:00 pm, March 8th, 2010.

- Community support (Book, strategies module etc)
- Visibility (Web pages, tutorial etc)
- Project integration (Current and future projects)
