Return of HPC Survivor: Outwit, Outlast, Outcompute

SESSION: Return of HPC Survivor: Outwit, Outlast, Outcompute


EVENT TAG(S): HPC Beginner Friendly, Hardware and Architecture, State of Practice, Outreach

TIME: 8:30AM - 10:00AM

Panelists:Cherri Pancake, Robin Goldstone, Steve Hammond, Jennifer M. Schopf, John E. West



Back by popular demand, this panel brings together HPC experts to compete for the honor of "HPC Survivor 2015". Following up on the popular Xtreme Architectures (2004), Xtreme Programming (2005), Xtreme Storage (2007)), Build Me an Exascale (2010), and Does HPC Really Matter? (2014) competitions, the theme for this year is "HPC Transformed: How to Reduce/Recycle/Reuse Your Outdated HPC System."

The contest is a series of "rounds," each posing a specific question about system characteristics and how that affects its transformation to new and exciting uses. After contestants answer, a distinguished commentator furnishes additional wisdom to help guide the audience. At the end of each round, the audience votes (applause, boos, etc.) to eliminate a contestant. The last contestant left wins.

While delivered in a light-hearted fashion, the panel pushes the boundaries of how HPC can/should affect society in terms of impact, relevancy, and ROI.
