Supercomputing after the End of Moore’s Law

SESSION: Supercomputing after the End of Moore’s Law

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

EVENT TAG(S): Architectures

TIME: 1:30PM - 3:00PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Erik P. DeBenedictis, John M. Shalf, Thomas M. Conte



Supercomputers will inevitably reach 1 Exaflops, yet the slowdown in device-level power efficiency improvements (“End of Moore’s Law”) makes reaching 10+ Exaflops dependent on new approaches.

One scenario is the potential development of lower-power transistors and more effective use of 3D integration, preserving current HPC architectures and existing software base. However, the same devices could be used in increasingly specialized architectures like Graphics Processing Units (GPUs). This scenario would need more software recoding.

This BoF will comprise presentations on these and other scenarios followed by an organizational session for groups (lasting beyond the BoF) to further develop the various scenarios.

Session Leader Details:

Erik P. DeBenedictis (Primary Session Leader) - Sandia National Laboratories

John M. Shalf (Secondary Session Leader) - Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Thomas M. Conte (Secondary Session Leader) - Georgia Institute of Technology
