Special Issue on Innovative R&D toward the Exascale Era
Submission Date: 2021-02-17

This special section explores new foundational and translational research toward enabling exascale computing for emerging scientific and societal challenges. Exascale computing (1,000 times more powerful than petascale) is defined as the capability to perform 1018 operations per second. Productively harnessing such a scale of processing, storage, and networking capabilities for diverse domains—including high-performance computing (HPC) simulations, artificial intelligence (AI), and extreme data-driven computing—relies on not only revitalizing existing parallel and distributed computing technologies but also innovating new solutions. Hence, topics related to applications, programming environments, runtimes, libraries, innovative algorithms, domain-specific frameworks, systems architecture, performance analysis, data processing, and networking technologies, among others, are within the scope of research encompassing parallel, distributed, and heterogeneous systems for exascale. Paths to exascale have been laid out across various national and international funding programs that are largely characterized by multidisciplinary research spanning from exascale centers of excellence for domain sciences to the development of operational IT infrastructure at scale. Characteristic features of the IT infrastructure technologies include accelerated processors, memory and storage hierarchies, smart networks for workflows, and storage for HPC and AI, among others. Software technologies and applications focus on developing next-generation scalable algorithms and frameworks, enabling performance portability, and enhancing productivity of complex parallel and distributed workflows. Contributions highlighting fundamental advances in software technologies, hardware, and applications over the current state-of-the art will be considered. Submissions addressing challenges that are unique to exascale computing, from application and algorithm development to reliability and availability of operational IT infrastructure, are within the scope of the special section. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: - Efficient hardware for exascale science - Sustainable software technologies for exascale computing, with emphasis on integration, interoperability, and hardware-software co-design - Scalable applications (computational science/engineering, data analytics, AI) and algorithms - Performance measurement, modeling, and tools for exascale - AI for HPC / HPC for AI - Scalable IO for HPC and AI workloads - Libraries and runtimes for exascale - Systems, compilers, programming models, and languages at scale - Testing, tuning, debugging, and profiling applications at scale - Visualization at scale - Domain-specific libraries and frameworks - Parallel and distributed workflows - Availability, reliability, resilience, and fault-tolerance - Resource management and scheduling
