Title: Support CEED-enabled ECP applications in their preparation for Aurora/Frontier

Technical Report ·
DOI:· OSTI ID:1845651

The goal of this milestone was to help CEED-enabled ECP applications (particularly ExaSMR, MARBL, ExaAM, ExaWind and E3SM) in their preparations for the Aurora and Frontier architectures. This work included collaboration with ECP vendors and porting and optimization of CEED’s benchmarks and miniapps to early access hardware. As part of this milestone, we also made the best bake-off problems and bake-off kernel implementation from Nek, MFEM, libParanumal and the external community available in the latest libCEED release, libCEED-0.7. During the milestone period we also organized, in virtual form, the fourth CEED Annual meeting (CEED4AM) which included representatives from ECP applications, vendors and software technology projects. The specific tasks addressed in this milestone were to: (1) Work with vendors to port and run CEED benchmarks on early access systems for Aurora and Frontier; (2) Make the best BP/BK implementations from Nek, MFEM, libParanumal and external community available in libCEED; (3) Organize the next CEED Annual meeting (CEED4AM); and (4) Optimize CEED applications and miniapps for Aurora and Frontier architectures. The artifacts delivered include the next libCEED release, libCEED-0.7, and a number of developments integrated within applications to improve their GPU performance and capabilities. See the CEED website, and the CEED GitHub organization, for more details.
