HPC has not been designed as an environmental-friendly technology. Its objective is rather to deliver high performance and high precision numerical tools for science, highly optimised for delivering calculation results as fast as possible. Today, as any other societal domain, the HPC community has to accept its share of work in reducing e-waste and energy consumption.

“Radical changes in computing are foreseen for the next decade. The US IEEE society wants to “reboot computing” and the HiPEAC Vision 2017 sees the time to “re-invent computing”, both by challenging its basic assumptions. This document presents the “EuroLab-4-HPC Long-Term Vision on High-Performance Computing” of August 2017, a road mapping effort within the EC CSA1 Eurolab-4-HPC that targets potential changes in hardware, software, and applications in High-Performance Computing (HPC)…”
