Getting Scientific Software Installed: Tools & Best Practices

SESSION: Getting Scientific Software Installed: Tools & Best Practices

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 12:15PM - 1:15PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Andy Georges, Jens Timmerman, Ewan Higgs



We intend to provide a platform for presenting and discussing tools to cope with the ubiquitous problems that come forward when building and installing scientific software, which is known to be a tedious and time consuming task.

Several user support tools for allowing scientific software to be installed and used will briefly be presented: EasyBuild (UGent), Lmod (TACC) and Spack (LLNL).

We would like to bring various experienced members of HPC user support teams and system administrators as well as users together for an open discussion on tools and best practices.
