SC13 BoF: G8 Extreme Scale and Big Data Program: Progress on Current Exascale Projects and Future Funding Opportunities

There have been six, G8-funded three-year exascale research projects in progress
since 2011. Their objective has been to prepare key scientific grand challenges from
the Climate, Fusion Energy, Seismology, and Bio-molecular scientific domains for the
exascale. The SC’13 BoF presented the status of the G8 international HPC research
program, including funding plans for a new phase of the program beyond
2014. Representatives from the associated international agencies presented the
funding landscape, and scientists from the current exascale projects presented their
project highlights. This BoF provided the HPC community with a “snapshot” of the G8
program from the perspectives of current exascale research projects as well as the
G8 international funding agencies.
