Path to Petascale: Adapting GEO/CHEM/ASTRO Applications for Accelerators and Accelerator Clusters

April 13th, 2009

The workshop “Path to PetaScale: Adapting GEO/CHEM/ASTRO Applications for Accelerators and Accelerator Clusters” was held at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, on April 2-3, 2009. This workshop, sponsored by NSF and NCSA, helped computational scientists in the geosciences, computational chemistry, and astronomy and astrophysics communities take full advantage of emerging high-performance computing accelerators such as GPUs and Cell processors. The workshop consisted of joint technology sessions during the first day and domain-specific sessions on the second day. Slides from the presentations are now online.
