ECP and ALCF to Host Twitter Chat June 21

Live Chat to Engage with the Broad High-Performance Computing Community, Public

On June 21 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern, the Exascale Computing Project (ECP) and the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility will host a chat on ECP’s Twitter account (@exascaleproject) that will address several questions concerning the Extreme-scale Scientific Software Stack (E4S) that ECP is developing for the nation’s forthcoming exascale systems. E4S will have a far-reaching impact on the broad high-performance computing (HPC) community and is already proving its value to HPC.

The hashtag for the chat will be #ExascaleChat. Special guests from ECP will provide expert responses to the questions and engage with Twitter participants.

E4S is a first-of-a-kind open-source software portfolio focused on providing the latest in research software products for HPC applications. E4S and its related software development kits (aka SDKs) are emerging from ECP to support a variety of activities, including the establishment of community policies aimed at increasing software quality and ease of installation and use, and the interoperability among, and sustainability of, software technologies developed by ECP and the broader HPC community.

The special guests will be as follows:

  • Jim Ahrens, Los Alamos National Laboratory
  • Mike Heroux, Sandia National Laboratory
  • Sherry Li, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
  • Lois Curfman McInnes, Argonne National Laboratory
  • Kathryn Mohror, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
  • Todd Munson, Argonne National Laboratory
  • Rajeev Thakur, Argonne National Laboratory
  • Jeff Vetter, Oak Ridge National Laboratory
