With Exascale Day 2020 – 10.18.20 – fast approaching, the folks at the Exascale Computing Project (ECP) have pulled together a collection of reports encompassing everything from application development to hardware. No matter what your particular exascale computing interest, there’s likely to be something to catch your eye.
Recall the creation of Exascale Day last year which was celebrated with a panel. Organizers noted October 18; hence 10/18, hence 1018 and voila, you have exascale.
The lion’s share of material gathered deals with development of the software ecosystem that will be required to make productive use of the soon-to-appear cadre of exascale systems. But there is also some hardware discussion mixed in. Currently it looks like Frontier (Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility) will be the first exascale system stood up. The ECP Exascsale Day collection includes videos, audio podcasts, and written material.
