Introduction - The 3rd International Workshop on Post-Moore Era Supercomputing (PMES)
TimeSunday, November 11th9am - 9:10am
DescriptionThe 3rd International Workshop on Post Moore's Era Supercomputing (PMES) follows the very successful PMES workshops at SC16 and SC17. This interdisciplinary workshop is organized to explore the scientific issues, challenges, and opportunities for supercomputing beyond the scaling limits of Moore's Law, with the ultimate goal of keeping supercomputing at the forefront of computing technologies beyond the physical and conceptual limits of current systems. Continuing progress of supercomputing beyond the scaling limits of Moore's Law is likely to require a comprehensive re-thinking of technologies, ranging from innovative materials and devices, circuits, system architectures, programming systems, system software, and applications.
The workshop is designed to foster interdisciplinary dialog across the necessary spectrum of stakeholders: applications, algorithms, software, and hardware. Motivating workshop questions will include the following. "What technologies might prevail in the Post Moore's Era?" "How can applications effectively prepare for these changes through co-design?" "What architectural abstractions should be in place to represent the traditional concepts like hierarchical parallelism, multi-tier data locality, and new concepts like variable precision, approximate solutions, and resource tradeoff directives?" "What programming models might insulate applications from these changes?"
