ABSTRACT: Now in its 18th year, the TOP500 list of supercomputers serves as a “Who’s Who” in the field of High Performance Computing (HPC). The TOP500 list was started in 1993 as a project to compile a list of the most powerful supercomputers in the world. It has evolved from a simple ranking system to a major source of information to analyze trends in HPC. The 36th TOP500 list will be published in November 2010 just in time for SC10.
This BoF will present detailed analyses of the TOP500 and discuss the changes in the HPC marketplace during the past years. The BoF is meant as an open forum for discussion and feedback between the TOP500 authors and the user community.
