Multi-system Application Extreme-scaling Imperative (MAXI-2015)

Mini-Symposium at the conference ParCo 2015, 3-4 September 2015 in Edinburgh

ParCo Mini-Symposium, Edinburgh, 3-4 September 2015

In preparation for future supercomputer systems expected to employ very large numbers of processors/cores, numerous application code teams have already demonstrated the ability to exploit massive (process/thread) parallelism and adapt to limited compute-node memory on Blue Gene/Q and other HPC systems (some with Xeon Phi coprocessors or GPGPUs). This mini-symposium gives outstanding application code teams a venue to report their achievements in both strong and weak scalability, the tools they used to get insight into performance, the issues encountered which needed to be resolved, and open issues that still need to be addressed.

Information on the venue and registration process as well as the full conference programme can be found on the ParCo 2015 website.
