Today the DOE Exascale Computing Project announced the following changes to their strategic plan. The ECP project now plans to deploy the first Exascale system in the U.S. in 2021, a full 1-2 years earlier than previously planned. This system will be built from a “novel architecture” that will be put out for bid in the near future. According to Argonne’s Paul Messina, Director, Exascale Computing Project, “It won’t be something out there like quantum computing, but we are looking for new ideas in terms of processing and networking technologies for the machine.”
The Supercomputing Frontiers 2017 conference in Singapore has issued its Call for Papers. As Singapore’s annual international HPC conference, Supercomputing Frontiers provides a platform for thought leaders from both academia and industry to interact and discuss visionary ideas, important global trends and substantial innovations in supercomputing. The event takes place March 13-16, 2017.
“Atos is incredibly proud to see the concrete results of the Tera1000 project,” said Philippe Vannier, CTO in the Atos Group. “Today we are taking a major step on the road towards exaflops. Undoubtedly, the interconnect technologies will provide a crucial contribution in achieving exaflops performance. With BXI, Atos is confirming its leadership in the field of supercomputers and beyond in the processing of very large volumes of data.”
In this video from SC16, Paul Messina and Stephen Lee describe the mission, status, and recent milestones of the Exascale Computing Project. Now entering its second year, the ECP recently announced that it has selected four co-design centers as part of a 4 year, $48 million funding award. It also announced the selection of 35 software development proposals representing 25 research and academic organizations.
Welcome to the Mobile Edition for the Print ‘n Fly Guide to SC16 in Salt Lake City. Inside this guide you will find technical features on supercomputing, HPC interconnects, and the latest developments on the road to exascale. It also has great recommendations on food, entertainment, and transportation in SLC.
Today the Department of Energy’s Exascale Computing Project (ECP) today announced that it has selected four co-design centers as part of a 4 year, $48 million funding award. The first year is funded at $12 million, and is to be allocated evenly among the four award recipients. “By targeting common patterns of computation and communication, known as “application motifs”, we are confident that these ECP co-design centers will knock down key performance barriers and pave the way for applications to exploit all that capable exascale has to offer.”
Researchers and staff from the U.S. Department of Energy’s national laboratories will showcase some of DOE’s best computing and networking innovations and techniques at SC16 in Salt Lake City. “Computational scientists working for various DOE laboratories have been in involved in the conference since its 1988 beginnings, and this year’s event is no different. Experts from 14 national laboratories will be sharing a booth featuring speakers, presentations, demonstrations, discussions and simulations.”
Today the Department of Energy’s Exascale Computing Project (ECP) today announced the selection of 35 software development proposals representing 25 research and academic organizations. “After a lengthy review, we are pleased to announce that we have selected 35 proposals for funding. The funding of these software development projects, following our recent announcement for application development awards, signals the momentum and direction of ECP as we bring together the necessary ecosystem and infrastructure to drive the nation’s exascale imperative.”
The ExaFLOW project has announced 3.3 Million Euros of funding for a group of eight organizations to take Europe’s CFD community one step closer to performing simulations in exascale environments.
