This workshop focuses on the particular problems to increase scale and examines potential means to address these problems. It is thereby not restricted to the hardware side of problems, but addresses the full scope from hardware limitations over algorithm and computing theory to new means for application development and execution. The workshop aims at experts from all fields related to high performance computing, including manufacturers, system designers, compiler and operating system developers, application programmers and users etc. Depending on the number of submissions, this workshop will be broken into multiple strands according to topic, such as hardware, theory of computation and software development.
The main questions asked by the workshop are therefore:
1- Where is the feasible end of scalability, i.e. when does it not make sense to increase scale anymore?
2- Which application and problem class can actually benefit from the degree of scale and scalability model is most suited for them?
3- What are the specific problems faced on hardware and software side in order to increase the scale further, i.e. such as interconnect latency, Amdahl’s law etc.
4- What alternative approaches are thinkable
