WASHINGTON, DC. — The recently established Consortium for the Advancement of Scientific Software (CASS) has announced 11 virtual sessions on scientific software, scheduled for June 11 – 13, 2024.
The virtual sessions, labeled the 2024 CASS Community Birds-of-a-Feather (BOF) Days, are sponsored by CASS and hosted by the Partnering for Scientific Software Ecosystem Stewardship (PESO) project, a member team of CASS.
Registration is now open. Specific BOF details, times, and signups are available at

This event builds on the popular ECP Community BOF Days organized by the DOE Exascale Computing Project (ECP) from 2021 to 2023.
The CASS Community BOF Days provide a unique, interactive platform for participants from the high-performance computing community to interact with scientific software teams and learn about their latest developments.
Each virtual Zoom BOF session will be 60 to 90 minutes long, including a brief overview and a Q&A session.

About CASS:
The Consortium for the Advancement of Scientific Software (CASS) fosters collaboration among a diverse collection of Software Stewardship Organizations (SSOs). The initial member organizations (COLABS, CORSA, PESO, S4PST, STEP, and SWAS, together with the FASTMath and RAPIDS SciDAC Institutes)  have been supported by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) as part of the Next-Generation Scientific Software Technologies (NGSST) program. Each SSO is charged with stewarding and advancing a portion of the scientific software ecosystem, such as math libraries, data and viz libraries and tools, and programming systems. CASS is established to define and execute a governance model and related processes that enable the SSOs to operate as an aggregate unit.
About PESO:
PESO is a recently funded five-year post-ECP software-ecosystem stewardship and advancement project. PESO will establish and steward a sustainable scientific software ecosystem comprising libraries and tools that deliver the latest high-performance algorithms and capabilities for DOE mission-critical applications.
