SESSION: Broader Engagement and Education in the Exascale Era

EVENT TYPE: Broader Engagement, HPC Educator

TIME: 8:30AM - 10:00AM

SESSION CHAIR: Almadena Chtchelkanova

Presenter(s):Thomas Sterling


The once rarefied field of high performance computing (HPC) now encompasses the challenges increasingly responsible for the mainstream. With the advent of multicore technology permeating not just the 1 million core+ apex of but the entire spectrum of computing platforms down to the pervasive cell phone, parallelism now challenges all computing applications and systems. Now education in HPC is education in all scalable computing. Without this, Moores Law is irrelevant. The mastery and application of parallel computing demands the broadest engagement and education even as HPC confronts the challenges of exascale computing for real world application. This presentation will describe the elements of change essential to the effective exploitation of multicore technologies for scientific, commercial, security, and societal needs and discuss the tenets that must permeate the shared future of education in HPC and the broader computing domain.
