    • Still "keen" on collecting information about early access systems by end of August
  • Exascale preparations: now, 6, 12, 18 months
    • Mike and Jim looking for roadmap for exascale preparations
    • Looks like this will be a big part of our project review
  • ECP Annual meeting announced: April 12-15
    • Obviously contingent on travel restrictions being lifted
  • 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

Review schedule changes.


Campaign to compile on new pre-exascale architectures by October.

  • Would organizing a virtual code sprint help (or hinder)?

Is sccache working with build:ubuntu1804_kokkos?

Is there an issue with GCC 4.8 tests?

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.
