ECP Updates

  • Budget plus ups
    • Good news
  • ECP Annual Meeting
    • Proposals for sessions/tutorials is sooner than you think
    • Hank submitted an ALPINE proposal that includes VTK-m
  • ECP review coming up
    • September 23-27
    • 30 minute talk like previous years
    • Will ask for input as necessary
  • Capability Assessment Report (CAR) also coming up
    • Will update from last year
  • KPP-3 will undergo another iteration
    • There will be a standard scoring system
    • It will likely be similar, but not accumulative

ECP deliverable updates


  • [MS-19/09] Path Geometry
    • Merged in a tube worklet
    • Still need to wrap that in a filter
    • Would like to clean poly data
  • [MS-20/01] Lightweight Cell Library
    • Ran into an issue where we are using an eigen library for some matrix libraries.
    • Is supposed to support CUDA, but for some functions it does not.
    • Looking into alternatives.
  • [MS-20/02] Specialized Data Models
    • Mark Kim checked in extruded cell set.
    • That is probably sufficient for the ECP milestone. (Probably some further tweaks.)
    • Now need some documentation
      • Will happen after Mark Kim completes paper (couple weeks out)
  • [MS-20/03] Feature-Sensitive Surface Norm
    • Merged into VTK-m.
    • Hit a snag with VTK.
      • Cannot reorder in a VTK-m
    • Need User's Guide documentation
  • [MS-20/04] VTK-m Release 3
    • Released happened (v1.4)
    • User's Guide is out.
  • [MS-20/05] Cell Metrics
    • Brent made a MR. Awaiting for approval.
      • Ken or Rob need to get on this.
    • More functionality will be add incrementally
  • [MS-20/06] Contouring
    • Ollie has started coding. Has some design questions he will ask offline.
  • [MS-20/07] Advanced Flow Algorithms
    • FTLE implementation is done
      • But it depends on a sequence of MRs before check in.
    • Abhishek is advancing on FTLE. Looking into differences between VisIt implementation.
    • Dave sketching out a stream surface algorithm
    • Distributed memory issues merged into VTK-h
