Towards Sustainable HPC

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.

The BDEC “Pathways to Convergence” Report

Although the“Big Data” revolution first came to public prominence (circa 2010) in on-line enterprises like Google, Amazon and Facebook, it is now widely recognized as the initial phase of a watershed transformaton that modern society generally, and scientific and engineering research in particular, are in the process of undergoing. Responding to this disruptive wave of change, over the past four years the Big Data and Exascale Computing (BDEC) project organized a series of five international workshops that aimed to explore the ways in which the new forms data-centric discovery introduced by this revolution might be integrated with the established, simulation-centric paradigm of the high performance computing (HPC) community…

Eurolab-4-HPC Long-Term Vision on High-Performance Computing

“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)…”
