Attendees: Ken Moreland (SNL), Matt Larsen (LLNL), Hank Childs (UO), James Kress (ORNL), Matt Letter (ORNL), Robert Maynard (Kitware), Berk Geveci (Kitware), Allie Vecanti (Kitware), Sujin Phillip (Kitware), Shreeraj (Kitware), Haocheng Liu (Kitware), Dave Pugmire (ORNL), Ollie Lo (LANL)

Matt could really use a way to do automatic dispatch. One idea was to have a special device adapter tag that represents a try-execute. As we talked about it during the meeting, we thought maybe that would not be a great idea since we would have to look at all uses of dispatcher anyway.

Reminder: VTK-m hackathon scheduled for late August.

Have been triaging some issues with OpenMP additions.

Rob has a cell set virtual that is working for single type and explicit. You can schedule with it, if you know the full type. There is still some open questions (such as 3D scheduling vs 1D scheduling).

Sujin is almost done with the data serialization work. Working through an apparent issue with DIY.

Shreeraj is almost done with the constexpr constructors of Vec. There is one issue on the dashboard. (Might just need to rebase on master.)

Allie is working using VTK datasets directly by a VTK-m algorithm.
