    Dear Hongjia,
    The BLCR developers have already performed some integration of
    BLCR with SLURM for SiCortex (a US computer vendor). I am including
    the people who are involved in the work in this response so that
    we can see what capabilities exist today and what capabilities
    would be valuable to add in the future. If anything can be done
    to SLURM to improve its integration with BLCR, that could certainly
    take the form of a new SLURM plugin. It would be great if you
    could do that work.
