Developing Exascale-Capable Applications: Recent Progress and Lessons Learned from the Exascale Computing Project

Moderator: Erik Draeger (Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory)

Panelists: Paul Kent (Oak Ridge National Laboratory), David McCallen (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory), Steven Hamilton (Oak Ridge National Laboratory), Katherine Yelick (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory), Tzanio Kolev (Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory)

Abstract: As the HPC landscape continues to rapidly evolve, developing applications that can effectively utilize the largest available machines is becoming increasingly challenging. The Exascale Computing Project (ECP), launched in 2016 and funded by the US Department of Energy (DOE), is an aggressive research, development, and deployment project focused on delivery of mission-critical applications at exascale. In this panel, we will discuss the strategies ECP application teams are using to prepare for exascale hardware, showcase recent progress on the Summit supercomputer, and describe the challenges ahead.
