(Incomplete minutes! Essentially, just the list of people present)

Running Madgraph with GPUs / Walter and Kyle

Note that benchmarking was done with CPUs, using the GPU version of the code (a rather old version of MadGraph).

Walter and Kyle had some contacts with Olivier from the Madgraph team, but he does not know the GPU version of the code. They also had a limited number of exchanges with Junichi.

Steve Mrenna: with high multiplicity of jets, according to StefanH the Vegas integration is not the main issue.
