Modern Software Design, Tools, and Practices
TimeMonday, 18 November 20192:30pm - 5pm
DescriptionInterested in a career in supercomputing? If yes, the chances are very good that you will interact in some way with software. Software has become a foundation of discovery in computational science and engineering and faces increasing complexity in computational models and computer architectures. This session is open to all students attending SC and will introduce attendees to modern software design, tools, and practices that will be applicable to students across many different disciplines.
The featured speakers include Elsa Gonsiorowski of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Reed Milewicz of Sandia National Laboratories. Both are members of the Interoperable Design of Extreme-scale Application Software (IDEAS) project, which is part of the Exascale Computing Project (ECP). IDEAS-ECP serves to help ease the challenges of software development in this environment, and to help the development teams ensure that DOE investment in the exascale software ecosystem is as productive and sustainable as possible.
