First Workshop on Software Challenges to Exascale Computing
9:30 AM to 5:30 PM, December 17, 2017
Hotel Royal Orchid, Jaipur, Rajasthan, India
High Performance Computing (HPC) platforms are used to power discoveries and to reduce the time-to-results in a wide variety of disciplines. Scalable and efficient software (applications, middleware, libraries, and tools) is critical for optimally using these platforms. However, developing and maintaining such software can be challenging due to several factors. As we progress towards the exascale computing era, these challenges are likely to become exacerbated due to the increasing complexity of the HPC platforms, and the pressing need for power-efficiency and memory usage optimization. There is a potential of mitigating some of the challenges related to developing HPC software for the current and future generation systems by adopting the innovations in the advanced software engineering discipline, such as model-driven engineering, generative programming, and adaptive and reflective software systems. Therefore, the SCEC17 workshop is being organized to foster collaborations across the HPC and the advanced software engineering disciplines, and to exchange knowledge on developing scalable and efficient software for latest HPC platforms.
The workshop will provide opportunities for: disseminating the research and development results, understanding the trends in HPC hardware, developing collaborations in the code modernization and optimization disciplines, understanding the challenges that the community faces in using the HPC platforms efficiently, and networking with potential customers.
