Topic: Expanding the Leadership Scientific Software Developer and User Communities: A panel discussion
Description: This month we have panelists representing the broader scientific software developer communities:
- Deb Agarwal, Berkeley Lab
- Anshu Dubey, Argonne National Laboratory
- Bill Hart, Sandia National Labs
- Addi Malviya-Thakur, Oak Ridge National Laboratory
- Katherine Riley, Argonne National Laboratory
In opening remarks, panelists briefly address the following questions from their perspective:
- What are some important similarities and differences between the software development and use in your community relative to large-scale HPC environments such as the DOE Leadership Computing Facilities (LLNL, OLCF, ALCF, NERSC)?
- Do you think it makes sense to include your scientific software community as part of what we mean by Leadership Scientific Software?
- If so, what is most important to consider if we attempt to expand the definition of leadership computing to include the community you represent? If not, why?
- What are some issues in the HPC software community that are not being sufficiently addressed right now that need to be considered to better address your important requirements?
Why attend: To discuss the potential expansion and limits of leadership scientific software beyond high-performance computing.
