DescriptionAs we approach the end of lithographic/Dennard scaling,
the HPC community needs a way to continue performance
scaling. One way of providing that scaling is an
increase in the number and diversity of specialized
architectures tailored for specific applications. To
accelerate the architecture specification and
verification of these new architectures, more rapid
prototyping methods are needed. At the same time, these
new architectures need software stacks and programming
models to be able to actually use these new designs.
concert with this increase in architecture
heterogeneity, there has been a consistent march towards
development of open source based hardware and software
solutions for each of these components to be used in
lieu of existing closed source solutions.
present the Workshop for Open Source Supercomputing.
This is meant to be a workshop for exploring and
collaborating on building an HPC system using
open-source hardware and system software IP. The goal of
this workshop is to engage the HPC community and explore
open source solutions for constructing an HPC system --
from silicon to applications.
