    Computational Science Initiative Event

    "The Exascale Computing Project: Status and Next Steps"

    Presented by Dr. Doug Kothe and Stephen Lee, ORNL/LANL

    2:30 pm, Seminar Room, Bldg. 725

    Wednesday, April 4, 2018, 2:30 pm

    Hosted by: Kerstin Kleese van Dam

    The Exascale Computing Project (ECP) is focused on accelerating the delivery of a capable exascale computing ecosystem to provide breakthrough solutions that can address our most critical challenges in scientific discovery, energy assurance, economic competitiveness, and national security. ECP is a joint effort of two DOE organizations: the Office of Science (SC) and the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA). In this context, "capable" means that a wide range of applications will be able to use the systems developed through ECP, ensuring that both science and security needs will be addressed. The term "ecosystem" shows that the goal is not just more powerful machines, but all of the methods and tools needed to ensure effective use of the ECP-enabled exascale systems to be acquired by DOE national laboratories. Current plans call for delivery of the first exascale system to Argonne National Laboratory in 2021, with additional exascale systems to follow at other SC and NNSA laboratories over the next several years to meet identified mission needs. ECP's work encompasses the development of applications, software technologies, and hardware technologies and architectures. This work is carried out by teams that leverage the diverse capabilities of the national laboratories (such as Brookhaven National Laboratory), universities, and industry. These teams are presently delivering advances in all three of these focus areas. A brief overview of the goals and scope of the ECP will be given along with highlights of recent R&D activities, deliverables (milestones), and accomplishments for each of the three focus areas. Near term plans will also be addressed, including the technical challenges foreseen on the horizon.
