The workshop will feature project talks, sessions dedicated to specific topics (break-out sessions), a poster session and sessions of short presentations with round table discussions.
JLESC is a collaboration between partner institutions: Argonne National Laboratory (ANL), Centro Nacional de Supercomputación/Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC), Institut national de recherche en informatique et en automatique (Inria), Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC), NCSA/University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, RIKEN Center for Computational Science (R-CCS), and University of Tennessee Knoxville (UTK). It focuses on challenges found in extreme scale high-performance computers.
Research areas include:
- Scientific applications (big compute and big data) that are the drivers of the research in the other topics of the joint-laboratory.
- Modeling and optimizing numerical libraries, which are at the heart of many scientific applications.
- Novel programming models and runtime systems, which allow scientific applications to be updated or reimagined to take full advantage of extreme-scale supercomputers.
- Resilience and Fault-tolerance research, which reduces the negative impact when processors, disk drives, or memory fail in supercomputers that have tens or hundreds of thousands of those components.
- I/O and visualization, which are important part of parallel execution for numerical simulations and data analytics
- HPC Clouds, that may execute a portion of the HPC workload in the near future.
This will be a good opportunity to present and discuss potential new collaborations with members of JLESC institutions. Opportunities for all researchers include:
- Gain access to other institutions and find new collaboration possibilities that can extend or improve what was done locally, or can complement a project with a different perspective (eg an analysis of a system)
- Formalize a mechanism to provide access to other institutions' systems (machines, instruments, etc.)
- Meet people working in similar fields
- Publication in future special issue of a journal like FGCS
Specific opportunities for students include:
- Meet other students (socially), particularly from other institutions/countries
- Funding for visits/travel, particularly for students
- Opportunity for students to give a "conference" talk, and participate in separate student-only events including poster session
- Opportunity for students to learn how to help organize a meeting or chair a session
Please feel free to circulate this call to other members of your institutions. Note, however, that only members of JLESC institutions can participate in the workshop. If you plan to bring in external experts, e.g. from partner universities, please contact your executive directors as early as possible.
