Abstract:   The advance of extreme-scale computing in serving multidisciplinary fields in science, technology, industry and business, and social welfare in the US and internationally is challenged by constraints on power, size, cost, resilience, and productivity. Integrated advances are required in technology and architecture, operating and runtime system software, programming interfaces and environments, and fundamental algorithms if extreme scale computing is to be practically applied in the next decade. In preparation to benefit from these potential opportunities, new research initiatives are being undertaken worldwide to a degree unprecedented in recent years and through international collaboration. This presentation will discuss the key technical challenges confronting the field and innovative strategies that may yield revolutionary breakthroughs to address them. Some ongoing and possible future programs to energize and coordinate a broad campaign of research will be presented with an emphasis on how their independent outcomes will combine in synergy to drive the future of extreme-scale computing.
