Join us at the Birds of a Feather session on "The European Approach to Exascale" at ISC'14:

The European path to Exascale is mainly paved by the FP7 research projects CRESTA, DEEP/DEEP-ER, EPiGRAM, EXA2CT, Mont-Blanc, and NUMEXAS. With a total funding of €74m, these projects tackle the Exascale challenge from different angles, such as novel prototype hardware, co-design approaches, highly-scalable algorithms, and programming paradigms. Additionally, through their cross-project collaboration, they foster a vivid European Exascale community.

This BoF will give an update on Europe’s progress towards Exascale and advance the discussion on the Exascale challenge. During the first half, each of the project coordinators will briefly summarise the main objectives and recent progress of each project. The second half will be dedicated to an open discussion about topics such as: the effectiveness of the presented initiatives to computing at Exascale; comparison of the European approaches to that of other countries; future directions of Exascale research and potential collaborations.
