22nd Software Meeting

Thursday, September 20, 2018 - 13:00 to 16:00

Location: Leeds University LIGHT Laboratories Conference Room (Level 4, LIGHT Labs), Clarendon Way, Leeds, LS2 9NL.

Agenda (draft):

1. Progress report (5 mins)

2. Report on survey (15 mins)

3. Summary of hackathon (80 mins)

  • Overall (10 mins)
  • Algo development via CIL (10 mins)
  • Geometry (25 mins)
  • Simulations (15mins)
  • GE Signa (5 mins)

4. GPU (90 mins)

  • Options: (Susan Thorne and Edo)
    • CUDA, OpenCL, OpenACC, OpenMP
    • Thrust, ArrayFire etc
  • Where to add GPU support (SIRF, Gadgetron, STIR?) and how to avoid copying data from/to CPU memory (discussion led by Evgueni)
    • Proposal: SIRF should not know about GPU except possibly GPU configuration and tell objects when they’re being constructed to use GPU or CPU memory.
  • Deployment: desktop vs cluster vs cloud (Casper, Ben)
    • How to use host GPU on Docker container or VM (if Nvidia and Linux host)

Light lunch will be provided from 12:30.
