Webinar: The Exascale Computing Project and the Future of HPC

The mission of the US Department of Energy (DOE) Exascale Computing Project (ECP) was initiated in 2016 as a formal DOE project and extends through 2022. The ECP is designing the software infrastructure to enable the next generation of supercomputers—systems capable of more than 1018 operations per second—to effectively and efficiently run applications that address currently intractable problems of strategic importance. The ECP is creating and deploying an expanded and vertically integrated software stack on US Department of Energy (DOE) HPC exascale and pre-exascale systems, thereby defining the enduring US exascale ecosystem.

The project is a joint effort of two DOE programs: the Office of Science Advanced Scientific Computing Research Program and the National Nuclear Security Administration Advanced Simulation and Computing Program. ECP’s RD&D activities, which encompass the development of applications, software technologies, and hardware technologies and architectures, is carried out by over 100 small teams of scientists and engineers from the DOE national laboratories, universities, and industry.
