DescriptionSpack is a package manager for scientific computing, with a rapidly growing open source community. With over 350 contributors from academia, industry, and government laboratories, Spack has a wide range of use cases, from small-scale development on laptops and clusters, to software release management for the U.S. Exascale Computing Project, to user software deployment on 6 of the top 10 supercomputer sites in the world.

At this BOF, Spack core developers will give updates on the state of the Spack community, and on new features such as environments, large-scale facility deployment, and binary package builds. A panel of Spack contributors will give 5-minute presentations on the use of Spack at their sites. Finally, we will conduct an interactive survey with the audience and open the floor for guided discussion as we review the results. All are invited to provide feedback, request features, and participate in the discussion! Help us make HPC software installation simple!
