As interest in topics that are often grouped under the catch-all umbrella of
'high performance computing with R' has grown over the last few months, it has
been suggested to create a dedicated mailing list.  

Now, thanks to Martin Maechler who tirelessly looks after all R mailing
matters, such a list has been set up as 'r-sig-hpc'.  

Suitable topics for discussion may comprise

 - parallel computing approaches for R with, but not limited to any of
   Rmpi, rpvm, snow, nws, rsprng, ... 

 - use of batch / queue management system such as Slurm, Condor, Sun Grid
 - Engine, LSF, ...

 - profiling and debugging R, in particular for compiled 

 - large-scale automation and scripting 

or any other topic you deem suitable for 'high performance computing with R'.

List information, as well as subscription information, is available at
