All are free to attend, but you'll need to endure some deep-mojo discussions of the innards of Open MPI. :-)

We typically do something informally scheduled on the day of, or somesuch (e.g., around 4pm people start wondering aloud what we should do for dinner :-) ). But if there is interest for others to attend, we can probably set up something ahead of time.

Same situation at the Forum -- we argu^H^H^H^Hdiscuss all day, and then discuss what to do for dinner, and then head out, usually in smaller groups.

The OMPI meeting will have no registration fee. The MPI Forum meeting has a registration fee, but if you just wanted to come to chat, observe, and not be on track to vote (voting means you have to register and attend at least 2 out of 3 consecutive meetings), you're more than welcome to come.
