TERATEC 2020 Forum
Wednesday October 14, 2020

Workshop 02 - 09:00 to 12:30

Do you speak Exascale?

Chaired by Guillaume Colin de Verdière, Senior Expert on HPC and Jean-Philippe Nominé, HPC Strategic Collaborations Manager, CEA DAM

Still a symbolic barrier for HPC world-wide community, Exascale has been a moving target: to some extent moving in time, although 2020 should see the first deployment(s) of near- or peak-exaflops  machines; and in terms of specifications and uses, exascale can definitely not be defined in a simple and monolithic vision.

Flops- and other ops-hungry, but also byte-hungry, exascale might call for more heterogeneous and modular solutions than foreseen some years ago; so as to serve a diversity of numerical simulation, AI, data analytics needs organized and combined in more and more complex workflows.

We will ask prominent experts from user and infrastructure side, as well as from supply and vendor side, to present their visions and thoughts, and feed discussion with the audience.
