The first supercomputers of the exascale area are envisaged around the year 2024. These machines will impose major challenges on simulation codes in order to run efficiently. Many challenges arise from the operation at the physical limits of the hardware and severe energy efficiency constraints. In this seminar, we will focus on the main challenges of exascale computing and discuss the approaches and building block for tackling these challenges.
For successful completion of the seminar course you have to fulfil the following tasks:
- solid understanding of your topic (e.g. by implementation of the underlying algorithm)
- writing of a paper (IEEE double-column format, 5-10 pages, max 10 pages total)
- presentation (30 min + discussion)
- participation in the presentations of all other participants
- deadlines: t.b.a.
