The Eleventh Workshop of the INRIA-Illinois-ANL Joint Laboratory on Petascale Computing

First Workshop of the INRIA-Illinois-ANL-BSC Joint Laboratory on Extreme Scale Computing (pending)

First Workshop of the NEXTGN Partnership University Fund project

June 9-11, 2014
Sophia Antipolis, France

The workshop will take place at Inria Sophia Antopolis.

The 11th workshop of the INRIA-Illinois-ANL Joint Laboratory on Petascale Computing will also be the first workshop of the NEXTGN Partnership University Fund project.

Il will gather top researchers in HPC from INRIA, the University of Illinois, the Argonne National Laboratory and Barcelona Supercomuting Center to explore research problems related to post Petascale Supercomputers and present early results of their joint work.

The workshop will feature technical sessions on five main topics: Big systems, Parallel Programming (Hybrid, Hierarchical, Heterogeneous), Resilience, Numerical Algorithms and Libraries and Big Data and I/O and Cloud for HPC. Other potential topics of collaboration will be presented and discussed.

The workshop will present an exceptional program with papers accepted or submitted to top level conferences.

The workshop will expose the results of the collaboration on Parallel Programming, Resilience,I/O and Cloud.

Exascale issues, research and activities will be discussed as well.

A key objective of the workshop is to identify new research collaborations and establish a roadmap for their implementation.

The workshop is open to Illinois, INRIA and ANL, faculties, researchers, engineers and students who want to learn more about Post Petascale Computing.
