ALPINE Coordination

Coordinating large commits to VTK-m.

ECP Updates

  • Reminder that there is a $20K limit for equipment/materials. If over 20K is needed, approval from ORNL office is needed.
  • FY21 funding is out.
    • Under $300K: all money sent. Over, 50% is sent out. The second 50% of FY21 funding will hopefully be out by end of Q1 in FY21.
    • Your lab will probably take some time for that money to be available for charging, but can start pushing if low on funds.
  • Early ALCF system, Yarrow is arriving in August.
  • Does anyone need access to Tulip for early ORNL system?
  • Let's think about possible highlights
    • App engagement
    • Success with porting (e.g. run on Aurora)
    • Engagement with other ST teams (e.g. using Kokkos)
  • Special ECP issue of Transition to Accelerated Nodes
    • Decided to have an article summarizing publications showing device portability + use cases.

ECP task updates

ECP/VTK-m Project Management


Rename master branch?

  • Need to wait for some changes to git before the transition (for some automated features of repo).
  • Can we for a time have a master that mirrors the new default?
    • Don't know, but seems possible. Will have to look into that.
