Abstract:   Recent supercomputer architectures are making gradual but steady migration towards heterogeneous architectures, typically combining numerous many (throughput) cores with smaller numbers of multi (latency) cores, as dictated by power constraints and strong scaling requirements, exemplified by machines such as the Roadrunner, Tianhe-1A and Tsubame2.0.

However, heterogeneous architectures pose their own challenges, from the hardware itself to operating systems, programming systems, as well as effective algorithms and applications. We ask the leading supercomputing chip makers and vendors to present their own views on the future of heterogeneous architectures as we proceed on the path to exascale.
