OpenSuCo 3 (ISC18)

3rd International Workshop on Open Source Supercomputing

OpenSuCo 3

Thursday, June 28, 2018 – 14:00 to 18:00 MEZ

Held in conjunction with the 2018 ISC High Performance Computing Conference, Frankfurt, Germany
Gold 3, Frankfurt Marriott Hotel

Increased specialization is an effective way for the HPC to continue performance scaling at the end of MOSFET scaling. To decrease design cost – in both money and time, rapid hardware prototyping methods combined with flexible software stacks and programming models must to be explored.

Open source solutions may provide the best opportunities for specialization and the OpenSuCo Workshop seeks to encapsulate a wealth of effort in design, prototyping, and cross-functional collaboration of open source hardware, software, and scientific computing projects in a singular point of technical discussion and exchange. As the limits of MOSFET/Dennard scaling grow ever closer, the high performance/technical computing community continually seeks new methods by which to continue scaling system performance and, potentially, system efficiency. The goal of this workshop is to engage the HPC community and explore open-source solutions for constructing an HPC system – from silicon to applications.

Topics of Interest

We invite the community to submit both papers and proposals for “lightning demos.” The demo session will provide attendees the opportunity to give short (5-min) demos of software or hardware technology that could forward the construction of open source HPC systems.

We solicit papers according to (but not limited to) three technical tracks as follows:

Hardware Software Collaboration
  • ISA & processors
  • System and network interconnects
  • Simulation & emulation
  • Early hardware evaluations
  • System software & OS
  • Programming models, tools & tool chains
  • Numerical solvers
  • Application infrastructures
  • Co-design projects and methods
  • Cross-disciplinary projects
  • International collaborations
