RSDHA: Redefining Scalability for Diversely Heterogeneous Architectures
TimeFriday, 19 November 20218:30am - 12pm CST
DescriptionScalable computing has governed another dimension. Contrary to the traditional HPC definition of total number of processors in a system, the newly rising dimension scales with the number of different type of processing units sharing the computational load. HPC systems are expected to employ a more diverse set of accelerators to accommodate the increasing computational and power demands of evolving workloads. In the meantime, mobile and embedded devices already packing a wide range of processing heterogeneity are expected to become highly connected and distributed.
The proposed workshop aims to target two core problems and establish a common ground where researchers can exchange their expertise: how traditional HPC could adopt the architectural and programming approaches employed by the diversely heterogeneous architectures; and how mobile and embedded systems could take examples from traditional HPC to beat the multi-node scalability challenges as they become increasingly more connected.
