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

November 21-23, 2011
Urbana, USA

The workshop will take place at the NCSA Building in Urbana, IL.

The sixth 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 results of their joint work obtained since the previous workshop (6 months ago).

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.

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 sustained Petascale computing and Exascale.
