Computational science & engineering in HPC

July 19th, 2007

With a nod to the newly formed Virtual Institute - High Productivity Supercomputing (VI-HPS), we thought it might be useful to provide a link to the Keynote talk given at the institute’s inauguration a couple of weeks ago. Doug Post, the chief scientist for the DoD High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP), gave a very informative talk about current/future challenges and opportunities in computational science and engineering. Loaded with statistics and information about challenges and bottlenecks related to code development and deployment, most of the talk is centered around HPCMP work, but much of it is applicable to HPC efforts within the US national research agenda.

What is a virtual institute you ask? In the VI-HPS context, a virtual institute is a specific research entity that unites distributed competencies and is funded by Germany’s Helmholtz Association.
