The fith workshop of the INRIA-Illinois Joint Laboratory on Petascale Computing

June 27-29, 2011
Grenoble, France

The workshop will take place at the Wolrd Trade Center (WTC) of Grenoble.

The WTC is 5 minutes walk from the SNCF train station.

The fith workshop of the INRIA-Illinois Joint Laboratory on Petascale Computing will gather top researchers in HPC from INRIA and the University of Illinois 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: Petascale Applications, Parallel Programming (Hybrid, Hierarchical, Heterogeneous), Resilience, Numerical Algorithms and Libraries and I/O. Other potential topics of collaboration will be presented and discussed.

We are delighted to announce that the keynote will be prepsented by Donald J. Wuebbles, Professor in the Department of Atmospheric Sciences

The workshop will present an exceptionnal program with 4 papers accepted as ACM/IEEE SC11, including the top score student paper

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

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 and INRIA faculties, researchers, engineers and students who want to learn more about Post Petascale Computing.

The banquet will take place at Restaurant la corne d'or
