Preparing Applications for Exascale Through Co-design
SESSION: Preparing Applications for Exascale Through Co-design
EVENT TYPE: Workshops
TIME: 8:30AM - 12:30PM
Organizer(s):Lorna Smith, Mark Parsons, Achim Basermann, Bastian Koller, Stefano Markidis, Frédéric Magoulès
The need for exascale platforms is being driven by a set of important scientific drivers. These drivers are scientific challenges of global significance that cannot be solved on current petascale hardware, but require exascale systems. Example grand challenge problems originate from energy, climate, nanotechnology and medicine and have a strong societal focus. Meeting these challenges requires associated application codes to utilise developing exascale systems appropriately. Achieving this requires a close interaction between software and application developers. The concept of co-design dates from the late 18th century, and recognised the importance of a priori knowledge. In modern software terms, co-design recognises the need to include all relevant perspectives and stakeholders in the design process. With application, software and hardware developers now engaged in co-design to guide exascale development, a workshop bringing these communities together is timely. Authors are invited to submit novel research and experience in all areas associated with co-design.
