Attendees: Ken Moreland (SNL), Tom Fogal (NVIDIA), Dave Pugmire (ORNL), James Kress (ORNL/UO), Rob Maynard (Kitware), Sujin Philip (Kitware), Jimmy Chen (Kitware), Jeremy Meredith (ORNL), Chris Sewell (LANL), Will Usher (LANL), Kewei Lu (LANL), Jeremy Meredith (ORNL), Hendrik Schroots (UC Davis)

Ken is working on cleaning up the dashboard. Once everything is green, we should work very hard at keeping it clean. Note that for each test there is a description that tersely lists the configuration. There is also a special "SystemInformation" test that captures the configuration of the build. (Ken noted that the SHA is not listed there. He plans to add it.)

We should add a PGI compiler to the list of builds. Rob will look to see if one of Kitware's PGI machines has some time to serve as a VTK-m buildbot.

Rob has fixed a CUDA scan issue (we think). This will help the LANL folks make progress in their implementation. Will is working on benchmarks. Kewei is working on generalizing contours to the new data sets and implementing stream line/surface.

Rob is going to start working on the VTK filter integration. The plan is detailed in gitlab issue 17.

Hendrik is working on volume rendering in the VTK-m framework. It is still running much slower than other versions. Part of this is likely that we currently do not support some important features like hardware interpolation in textures. These features will be flushed out as we progress.

Hendrik is also implementing an OpenGL interop. The classes will be placed in the vtkm::opengl namespace. He will create a merge request so that Rob and others can take a look at it.
