Abstract:   SPPEXA, “Software for Exascale Computing”, is DFG’s Priority Programme 1648 to address fundamental research on the various aspects of HPC software. It was launched in January 2013 as a strategic initiative of DFG and consists of 13 research consortia involving universities all over Germany as well as international partners. SPPEXA provides the environment to enable the participating groups to significantly advance the state of the art in HPC software technology. This workshop is the first SPPEXA event to link SPPEXA members, and the program as a whole, to the international HPC community.
The workshop consists of invited talks by Pete Beckman (Argonne National Laboratory) and Chuck Hansen (U Utah) as well as talks on the research and current findings of four SPPEXA research consortia. The event closes with a round-table discussion on the potentials and limits of simulation and HPC. Guests are Gabriele Gramelsberger (Freie Universität Berlin), Friedel Hoßfeld (Jülich Supercomputing Centre), and Omar Ghattas (U Texas). The discussion will be moderated by Patrick Regan (TUM Institute for Advanced Study).
