ABSTRACT:
In recent years, heterogeneous computing platforms "in a box" have quickly moved from being the exception to being the norm in high-performance computing (HPC). Examples of supercomputers that are based on such heterogeneous computing platforms now exist everywhere --- from the "AMD Opteron CPU + Cell Broadband Engine" heterogeneous combination found in LANL's Roadrunner (1.76 petaflops) to the myriad of emerging "CPU+GPU" heterogeneous combinations, such as in NSCS's Nebulae (1.27 petaflops). Another combination that is seeing increasing attention is the CPU+FPGA. This panel seeks to address arguably the three biggest problems in heterogeneous computing on the road to exascale: performance, power, and programmability.
