Jan. 15 — The SIAM Workshop on Exascale Applied Mathematics is coming up on July 6, 2014, at the Palmer House in Chicago, Illinois. This event will be co-located with the 2014 SIAM Annual Meeting. The workshop, which is designed for the expert and non-expert alike, centers on providing relevant, accessible, and timely material on exascale computing and the mathematical challenges presented by many-core and accelerated architectures. The intent is that attendees come away with a reasonable idea of the state of the art, the current challenges and opportunities, and what needs to be done differently going forward. The workshop will consist of a full day of contributed and invited presentations and discussion talks.
Call for Participation
A Call for Participation has been issued for case studies, position papers proposing topics for discussion, and technical talks describing particular approaches. The organizers seek participants from a broad spectrum of areas, including developers of scientific simulation codes and industrial end-users.
Those wishing to participate should submit an abstract or position paper by February 28, 2014. Papers should be submitted through EasyChair at https://www.easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?key=7761934.OkLDUgHRHpyIQYGZ. Submissions should be no longer than 1000 words; no additional material other than a list of cited references will be considered. Use no smaller than 11-point font and at least one-inch margins. There is a limit of at most two submissions that an individual can submit; no limits on number of groups/institutions. Each paper should provide contact information (name, institution, email address) for a single, corresponding author. If you do not already have an account on EasyChair, you will be asked to go through the easy process to create one.
Notifications of acceptance will be sent by March 31, 2014. Submissions will be selected based on their quality and responsiveness to the call. We expect to post a list of the selected papers online with the agenda. Participants will be expected to fund their own travel and accommodations for the workshop.
The workshop will consist of a full day of contributed and invited presentations and discussions on topics including, but not limited to:
- Current state of the art
◦ Today’s hardware
◦ Parallel numerical algorithms and libraries
◦ Emerging architectures that will enable exascale
◦ Effectively using millions of computational units
◦ Hybrid architectures
◦ Resilience and fault-tolerant algorithms
- Future directions
◦ Compiler directives, domain libraries, or code changes, or?
◦ Decomposition/coupling/multiphysics evolution?
◦ How can algorithm and library developers harness future architectures
Case studies, position papers proposing topics for discussion, and technical talks describing particular approaches are invited. The organizers seek participants from a broad spectrum of areas, including developers of scientific simulation codes and industrial end users. The presentations are expected to be 30 minutes in length, but we will entertain exceptions.
