National Strategic Computing Initiative
Workshop: ATIP Workshop on International Exascale and Next-Generation Computing Programs
Authors: William Harrod (US Department of Energy)
Abstract: The National Strategic Computing Initiative (NSCI) is a US national initiative that focuses the efforts of key US federal agencies into a unified strategy for advancing high performance computing (HPC) in an era of uncertain future technology. As the reliable progress in computer performance afforded by Moore’s Law approaches its end, this initiative must investigate technologies and approaches for providing new sustainable pathways of both increased capability and capacity. The speaker will describe plans and progress towards achieving NSCI’s five key objectives, and will discuss the Exascale Computing Project (ECP) and beyond Moore’s Law projects.
