14th JLESC Workshop

September 28 – 30, 2022

Urbana, IL

The workshop gathers leading researchers in high-performance computing from the JLESC partners INRIA, the University of Illinois, Argonne National Laboratory, Barcelona Supercomputing Center, Jülich Supercomputing Centre, RIKEN R-CCS and The University of Tennessee to explore the most recent and critical issues in advancing the field of HPC from petascale to the extreme scale era.

The workshop will feature sessions on these seven central topics:

  • Applications and mini-apps
  • Parallel Programming models and runtime
  • Performance tools
  • Resilience
  • Big Data, I/O and in-situ visualization
  • Numerical methods and algorithms
  • Advanced architectures

In addition, dedicated sessions on computational fluid dynamics, computational biology and climate/weather research are planned.

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, INRIA, ANL, BSC, JSC, Riken R-CCS and UTK faculty, researchers, engineers and students who want to learn more about Post-Petascale / Pre-Exascale Computing.

Motivation and Opportunities

This will be a good opportunity to present and discuss potential new collaborations with members of JLESC institutions. Opportunities for all researchers include:

  • Gain access to other institutions and find new collaboration possibilities that can extend or improve what was done locally, or can complement a project with a different perspective (eg an analysis of a system)
  • Formalize a mechanism to provide access to other institutions’ systems (machines, instruments, etc.)
  • Meet people working in similar fields
  • Publication in future special issue of a journal like FGCS

Specific opportunities for students include:

  • Meet other students (socially), particularly from other institutions/countries
  • Funding for visits/travel, particularly for students
  • Opportunity for students to give a “conference” talk, and participate in separate student-only events including poster session
  • Opportunity for students to learn how to help organize a meeting or chair a session
