Abstract:
After fifteen years of stasis, high performance computing is entering an era of disruptive
change. Several trends are driving this change. Traditional applications are evolving rap-
idly, and new applications with different computational needs are emerging. At the same
time, computer architects are facing new design constraints, yet the continued march
of Moore's Law creates opportunities for radical innovation. Meanwhile, the field is in
urgent need of new abstractions and programming models. The combination of these
forces will raise enormous challenges in the coming years. But in addressing these chal-
lenges, high performance computing will be enriched and rejuvenated, and will contrib-
ute in unprecedented ways to science and society.
