Reproducibility Initiative Announces Webinar Series to Assist Paper Authors


On March 14, 2022, the SC22 Reproducibility Initiative Committee will kick-off a webinar series to provide potential authors with key information on using several technologies and platforms to help them prepare the Artifact Description and Artifact Evaluation (AD/AE) appendix for paper submissions.

The series will include webinars on the Extreme-scale Scientific Software Stack (E4S), Chameleon Cloud, Jetstream among others. To access Zoom information for each event, please register at the links provided below.

The first webinar will take place on March 14, 2022.

1. Extreme-scale Scientific Software Stack (E4S)

  • Title: Using Containers for Reproducibility of Scientific Results for AD/AE Submission
  • Speaker: Sameer Shende, University of Oregon
  • Abstract: Containers have ushered in a new era of reproducibility of scientific results. This talk will focus on using and building custom containers that support CPU and GPU platforms on x86_64, ppc64le, and aarch64 with support for NVIDIA, Intel, and AMD GPUs. It will demonstrate techniques for deploying these base and full-featured images from E4S to build tools that can be used in SC22 papers for AD/AE submission.

2. Chameleon Cloud

  • Title: Using Chameleon Cloud for Reproducibility for AD/AE Submission
  • Speakers: Isabel Brunkan and Michael Sherman, Chameleon Cloud
  • Abstract:  Chameleon, an NSF-funded computer science and systems research testbed, provides bare metal reconfigurability options for CPUs, GPUs, and FPGAs, with consumer and enterprise level SSDs, NVMe, NVDIMM and RDMA storage options, InfiniBand networking, ARM ThunderX2 processors, an edge testbed with Raspberry Pis and Jetson Nanos and even more unique configurations available. This talk will cover the basics of interacting with Chameleon and reproducibility options including using the Jupyter Notebook integration to package experiments, a testbed-integrated repository to help you share and discover experiments, and Daypass, which allows you to share your experiment via a link or QR code.

3. Jetstream2

  • Title: Jetstream2 – Accelerating Cloud Computing via Jetstream
  • Speaker: Jeremy Fischer, Indiana University
  • Abstract: Jetstream2 is a category I production cloud resource that is part of the National Science Foundation’s Innovative HPC Program. The project’s aim is to accelerate science and engineering by providing “on-demand” programmable infrastructure built around a core system at Indiana University and four regional sites. Jetstream2 is an evolution of the Jetstream platform, which functions primarily as an Infrastructure-as-a-Service cloud. The lessons learned in cloud architecture, distributed storage, and container orchestration have inspired changes in both hardware and software for Jetstream2. These lessons have wide implications as institutions converge HPC and cloud technology while building on prior work when deploying their own cloud environments. In this talk, we will cover the transition to Jetstream2, the available resources, accessing Jetstream2 resources, and how to use them.
