"Towards an Open Software Stack for Exascale Computing"

SESSION: "Towards an Open Software Stack for Exascale Computing"


EVENT TAG(S): HPC Futures and Exascale, Exascale, Software for HPC

TIME: 1:30PM - 3:00PM

Panelists:Nicolás Erdödy, Pete Beckman, Chris Broekema, Jack Dongarra, John Gustafson, Thomas Sterling, Robert Wisniewski



The panel will discuss what an open software stack should contain, what would make it feasible and what is not looking possible at the moment. The discussion is inspired by the fact that "this time, we have time" before the hardware actually reaches the market after 2020, so we can work on a software stack accordingly.

We will cover questions such as: Which would be the software development costs? What industries will migrate first? Would a killer app accelerate this process? Do we focus on algorithms to save power? How heterogeneous would/should “your” exascale system be? Is there a role for Co-design towards exascale? Is the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) project an example to follow? Would cloud computing be possible for exascale? Who will “own” the exascale era?
