Video: DEEP-ER Project Reaches for Exascale


In the video, the DEEP-ER project paves the way to energy-efficient Exascale computing.

Usable Exascale and Beyond Moore’s Law

Berkeley Lab’s Deputy Director, Horst Simon

“Over the last five years HPC performance growth has been slowing measurably, and in this presentation several reasons for this slowdown will be analyzed. To reach usable exascale performance over the next decade, some fundamental changes will have to occur in HPC systems architecture. In particular, a transition from a compute centric to a data movement centric point of view needs to be considered. Alternatives including quantum and neuromorphic computing have also been considered. The prospects of these technologies for post-Moore’s Law supercomputing will be explored.”

Panel Discussion: The Road to Exascale


In this video from 2015 Stanford HPC Conference, Rich Graham (HPC Advisory Council), DK Panda (Ohio State University), and Addison Snell (Intersect360 Research) weigh in on the outlook for Exascale Computing.

Optalysys to Spark Optical Processing with Series A Funding


Today UK based startup Optalysys Ltd announced that the company has launched a Series A funding round to support product commercialization activities up to the first product launches in 2017.

High-Performance Programming Models for Exascale Systems

DK Panda, Ohio State University

“This talk will focus on programming models and their designs for upcoming exascale systems with millions of processors and accelerators. Current status and future trends of MPI and PGAS (UPC and OpenSHMEM) programming models will be presented.”

Video: Preparing OpenSHMEM for Exascale


“Summit is Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s next high performance supercomputer system that will be based on a many core/GPU hybrid architecture. In order to prepare OpenSHMEM for future systems, it is important to enhance its programming model to enable efficient utilization of the new hardware capabilities (e.g. massive multithreaded systems, accesses different type memories, next generation of interconnects, etc). This session will present recent advances in the area of OpenSHMEM extensions, implementations, and tools.”

Still Time to Register for Stanford HPC Conference, Feb 2-3


As a reminder, the Stanford HPC Conference takes place next week, February 2-3, at Stanford, California. Hosted by the HPC Advisory Council, the conference will focus on High-Performance Computing (HPC) usage models and benefits, the future of supercomputing, latest technology developments, best practices and advanced HPC topics. In addition, there will be a strong focus on […]

Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Set for August, 2015


Argonne will host their 2015 ATPESC Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing for computational scientists. The event takes place August 2-14 in Chicago. “The program provides intensive hands-on training on the key skills, approaches and tools to design, implement, and execute computational science and engineering applications on current supercomputers and the HPC systems of the future. As a bridge to that future, this two-week program to be held at the Pheasant Run Resort in suburban Chicago fills many gaps that exist in the training computational scientists typically receive through formal education or shorter courses.”

Thought Leaders Gather in Barcelona for Exascale Workshop


More than 100 exascale experts will gather in Barcelona this week for the Big Data and Extreme-scale Computing (BDEC). Along with application leaders confronting diverse big data challenges, attendees will include members from industry, academia, and government, with expertise in algorithms, computer system architecture, operating systems, workflow middleware, compilers, libraries, languages and applications.

Intel Extends Collaboration with Barcelona Supercomputing Center


The Barcelona Supercomputing Center and Intel have renewed their collaboration research agreement at the Intel and BSC Exascale Laboratory in Barcelona. Now funded through 2017, the Intel and BSC Exascale Lab in Barcelona focuses on software and extraordinary levels of parallelism that will be needed to use future Intel-architecture-based supercomputers.
