Exascale computing power will likely be reached in the next decade. While the precise system architectures are still evolving, one can safely assume that they will be largely based on deep hierarchies of multicore CPUs with similarly-deep memory hierarchies, potentially also supported by accelerators.
The challenge of designing and implementing applications running efficiently at large scale on exascale platforms involves developers of application, libraries, programming models and system software.
The aim of this conference is to bring together developers from different application fields to present the problems they face on the road to exascale, their approach to solve these challenges and to share their experience gained during the petascale period.
