DescriptionThis BoF explores the challenges and opportunities of Exascale Computing. The motivations for exascale are centered on drivers such as economic competitiveness, national security, health care, energy, manufacturing, materials, and science. This session gathers a forum of HPC experts to identify what they consider to be key challenges in achieving exascale computing and how they would best propose to meet them, with special attention to collaboration opportunities. A few of the key topics include: exascale eco-system elements, lessons from establishing public/private partnerships, impact of exascale R&D investments on the broader HPC community. Significant audience participation will be encouraged.
