ACM A.M. Turing Lecture: A Not So Simple Matter of Software Presenter: Jack Dongarra Abstract: In this talk, we examine how high performance computing has changed over the last 40-year and look toward the future in terms of trends. These changes have had and will continue to have a significant impact on our numerical scientific software. A new generation of software libraries and algorithms are needed to effectively use dynamic, distributed, and parallel environments. Some of the software and algorithm challenges have already been encountered, such as management of communication and memory hierarchies through a combination of compile-time and run-time techniques, but the increased scale of computation, depth of memory hierarchies, range of latencies, and increased run--time environment variability will make these problems much harder.
