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.”

“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.”

Leadership Computing for Combustion Apps on INCITE and PRACE Systems

M2009_073_vue_270-2

“The INCITE and PRACE programs give access to increasing resources allowing these technologies to be applied to industrial scale systems. From past and ongoing research examples performed at CERFACS, this presentation highlights the scientific breakthroughs allowed by HPC on exascale machines for reacting flows for gas turbines and explosions in buildings.”

OpenPOWER Foundation Overview

Steve Fields presented this talk at the Stanford HPC Conference. “Led by IBM, the OpenPOWER Foundation was created to push Power-based chip designs into hardware products such as servers. The founding members of the OpenPOWER Consortium represent the next generation in data-center innovation. Combining our talents and assets around the POWER architecture can greatly increase the rate of innovation throughout the industry.”

Jacqueline H. Chen from Sandia presented this talk at the Stanford HPC Conference. “Co-Design of Exascale Simulation of Combustion in Turbulence (ExaCT). “The mission of co-design within the Center for Exascale Simulation of Combustion in Turbulence (ExaCT) is to absorb the sweeping changes necessary for exascale computing into software and ensure that the hardware is developed to meet the requirements to perform direct numerial simulations of turbulent combustion at actual thermo-chemical conditions of combustors.”

HPC and Exascale for the SKA Telescope

Bill Boas from Cray presented this talk at the Stanford HPC & Exascale Conference. “The SKA Telescope project entered its pre-construction design and engineering planning phase on December 1, 2013. Once fully constructed a decade from now, there will be 2500 dish antennae in South Africa and 100s of thousands of di-pole antennae in Western Australia, combining to create the world’s largest radio telescope and requiring the most data ever captured, processed, and archived that man has ever conceived.”

Securing Access to HPC Systems and Software

Christopher Atwood from HPCMP presented this talk at the Stanford HPC & Exascale Conference. “High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP) stakeholders require securable access to computational resources from clients with stringent administration restrictions. Hence, for example a user prevented from installing a Kerberos kit on a workstation is unable to access supercomputers. A solution based on WebGL ha resulted in a highly responsive user interface.”
