High-End Computing and Climate Modeling: Future Trends and Prospects

SESSION: Big Science, Big Data II

EVENT TYPE: Masterworks

ROOM:395-396

ABSTRACT:
Over the past few years, there has been considerable discussion of the change in high-end computing, due to the change in the way increased processor performance will be obtained: heterogeneous processors with more cores per chip, deeper and more complex memory and communications hierarchies, and fewer bytes per flop. At the same time, the aggregate floating-point performance at the high end will continue to increase, to the point that we can expect exascale machines by the end of the decade. In this talk, we will discuss some of the consequences of these trends for scientific applications from a mathematical algorithm and software standpoint. We will use the specific example of climate modeling as a focus, based on discussions that have been going on in that community for the past two years.
