Special Issue on:
New Trends in High Performance Computing: Software Systems and Applications
Software: Practice and Experience (Wiley Press)

Submission due: May 31, 2021

High performance computing (HPC) offers the computing power to continuously support
the world’s most important discoveries in various scientific and business domains such
as chemistry, physics, biology, material science, drug discovery and financial
investment risk analysis. The exascale computing era is soon coming. A number of
exaflops-capable supercomputers are scheduled to be fully operational in the time
frame of 2021 and 2022. Researchers from across the HPC community are developing
software systems, tools, libraries, frameworks, application packages, and methods that
can fully exploit these extremely powerful computing resources.

Extreme-scale computing will enable the solution of vastly more accurate predictive
models and the analysis of massive quantities of data, producing quantum advances in
areas of science and technology that are essential to the scientific community. New
computational approaches such as machine learning/deep learning have also been
heavily explored in recent years and shown promising evidence for many problems that
cannot be resolved by traditional computational simulation and engineering. Training
deep neural networks with massive data is an extremely computing intensive task that
heavily relies on the HPC power. The upcoming exascale computing era will be the
essential basis for supporting new innovations in machine learning/deep learning based
exploration and lead to new sciences in directions such as smart manufacturing,
laboratory-automation, and automatic programming.

While the hardware architecture can generate extreme computing power, renovation in
software stack plays the essential role for effective performance delivery. The exascale
and pre-exascale systems such as Aurora, Frontier, El Capitan and LUMI continue to
move into the heterogeneous space, while the current fastest ARM-based system,
Fugaku and the many core Sunway Taihulight type of systems are marching towards
the heterogeneous space. With systems equipped with GPUs, ARM SVEs and many
cores, there is a dire need for innovative software frameworks that can seamlessly
migrate scientific code to these systems equipped with rich compute resources. We
need innovation at different levels including compiler tools and techniques, performance
analysis tools, novel abstractions at the programming model, redesign of application-level
algorithms and so on. Furthermore, co-design of applications and low-level software
frameworks can lead to more efficient use of the opportunities of
exascale in many contexts.
