Scalable Heterogeneous Computing Forum

SESSION: Scalable Heterogeneous Computing Forum

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 12:15PM - 1:15PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Jeffrey Vetter, Sadaf Alam


As scalable heterogeneous computing (SHC) architectures are emerging as solutions for HPC, data-intensive and engineering applications, there is an imminent need for a forum that focuses on operational, procurement, and deployment requirements as well as R&D priorities for the SHC ecosystem. This BOF launches an international, open, customer-driven community effort for developing SHC ecosystems solutions and provides attendees an opportunity to join the forum. Speakers from academic, government, and vendor institutions will introduce preliminary working groups, and the organizing committee will present both a draft version of a ‘Best Practices’ guide on SHC clusters and preliminary survey results identifying the communities’ priorities. This forum will collaborate and coordinate with ongoing operational, R&D, and standardization efforts across government, industry, and academia. These efforts include programming environments, system administration, and runtime systems. Furthermore, the forum will identify technical gaps across these communities, and encourage investments in these gaps from member portfolios.
