The Programming Environments Workshop will be held at the Hilton Washington DC/Rockville Hotel & Executive Meeting Center, 1750 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD. The workshop will begin on Monday, March 9, 2015, at 8:00 am and end on Wednesday, March 11, 2015, by 12:00 pm.
PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVE(S): This workshop will present to the application and library developer community the state-of-the-art in programming environments for exascale generated by the DOE ASCR programs, collecting input on their requirements and their interest in actively engaging with the research to further guide research and development. This will be the first of a series of workshops that are to be focused on determining the research agenda and eventual deployment plans for the ECI Programming Model(s)/Environments(s) (PM/E) thrust area. Goals of this workshop are: (1) Propose, articulate, and consider multiple visions of the PM/E designed to address applications development needs at exascale; (2) Determine the research questions that need to be addressed going forward; (3) Articulate the methods for evaluating PM/E research results; and (4) Review the requirements that applications have for the ECI PM/E. This workshop will help us plan our future directions on this area. Additional details about the purpose (79 KB) of this workshop are available for download in PDF format.
