New Project Request

How can we help you?
Please provide details regarding your request? Do you have a solution defined or do you need support identifying a solution?
Replace the application install with Spack instead of the traditional build process with configure/make and/or cmake.
What are the factors driving the desired completion date?
Are there campus activities, legal requirements, dependent efforts or goals that are driving a date?
HPC group in CIARC wants to streamline the application install process on HPC's; Spack should theoretically streamline the process once it is learned and configured.
Any additional information about this request that you would like to include?
Who does this project help? What happens if this project is not completed?
