About the workshop

The international race to develop the world’s first exascale supercomputer is the next frontier in High Performance Computing (HPC). However, building an exascale supercomputer requires substantial changes to the current technological models, including the areas of energy consumption, scalability, network topology, memory, storage, resilience and, consequently, the programming models and systems software – none of which currently scales to these performance levels. The EuroEXA project ( euroexa.eu) targets to provide the template for an upcoming exascale system by co-designing and implementing a petascale-level prototype with ground-breaking characteristics.

In this workshop, we will bring together international top-researchers from all over Europe and beyond, to talk about the challenges, insights and solutions for building exascale hardware and software, procuring exascale-class systems and achieving exascale application performance, with a special focus on hardware and software co-design.

Topics of interest

  • HPC application preparation for exascale, including programming models
  • HPC Application/System co-design
  • System software for exascale (operating systems, resource managers, middleware, runtime systems)
  • Hardware design for exascale systems (processors, accelerators, interconnection networks)
  • Infrastructure challenges in building and operating exascale systems (power density and capacity, electrical infrastructure, cooling, monitoring)

Call for abstracts

Authors are invited to submit extended abstracts containing research within the topics of interest or hot and potentially controversial work in progress related to the topics of interest. Authors should submit a PDF file up to 2 pages of double column text using single spaced 10 point size on 8.5x11 inch pages, as per IEEE 8.5 x 11 manuscript guidelines. Templates are available from the IEEE website.
