An Update on the European Exascale Software Initiative

Ricoux

Philippe Ricoux from Total presented this talk at the Stanford HPC Conference. “The objective of this Support Action, co-funded by the European Commission is to build a european vision and roadmap to address the challenges of the new generation of massively parallel systems composed of millions of heterogeneous cores which will provide multi-Petaflop performances in the next few years and Exaflop performances in 2020.”

Road to Exascale Panel

Scott Fadden from IBM presented this talk at the Stanford HPC Conference. “What does it mean to provide data to an Exascale system? Many believe that the current model of adding more disks and installing faster networks won’t get us there. So how do you get the right data to the right processor at the right time? How dow begin to leverage new storage technologies? This presentation explores some the Exascale challenges and provides insight on what is being done today to learn about and prepare for managing data in an Exascale system.”

DK Panda from Ohio State University presented this talk at 2014 HPC Advisory Council Stanford Conference. “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.”

Challenges of Exascale Systems from an Applications Perspective

Intel’s Mark Seager presented this talk at 2014 HPC Advisory Council Stanford Conference. “In this talk, we will review the many challenges of building practical Exascale systems by the end of the decade and Extreme scale systems in the 2020s. Some of these challenges, such as extreme levels of parallelism, have direct impact on applications, while others, such as new data paradigms, offer real breakthrough application and scientific opportunities.”

Architecture-aware Algorithms and Software for Petascale and Exascale

Jack Dongarra presented this talk at SC13. “We use a hybridization methodology that is built on representing linear algebra algorithms as collections of tasks and data dependencies, as well as properly scheduling the tasks’ execution over the available multicore and GPU hardware components.”

Podcast: What the Nvidia Tegra K1 Means for the Future of HPC

rob3

In this podcast, analyst and author Rob Farber looks at Nvidia’s launch of Tegra K1 processor. Designed for high-resolution mobile devices, the K1 features the same high-performance Kepler-based GPU that drives the world’s most powerful supercomputers.
