DescriptionWhile traditional HPC systems continue making great advances, it is argued that paradigm shifts, including radical new architectures, are needed to continue scaling performance beyond exascale at sustainable cost and energy levels. Such architectures will likely employ reconfigurability or FPGAs for certain types of parallelism.
This BoF targets persons interested in these subjects aiming to further understand their role, usage, run-time systems, programming models, the role of open-source technology and what challenges to widespread adoption remain. One goal is also to continue to build a HPC FPGA community.
The BoF will combine interactive presentations with audience driven discussions.
