1st International Workshop on Strategic Development of High
Performance Computers
March 18-19, 2013
Tsukuba International Congress Center, Tsukuba Japan

The purpose of this workshop is to report Japan's research activities
for post petaflops, or exascale, machines, and also to discuss
international system software development collaborations. In 2012,
Japan started a two-year program to investigate feasibility on
development of post K computer. Four research teams have been involved
with this program. A team headed by AICS is responsible for studying
scientific and social issues to be solved by 2020 and making a science
road map until 2020. Three teams, headed by Tohoku U., U. of Tsukuba,
and U. of Tokyo, have been working with NEC, Hitachi, and Fujitsu to
study on three types of next supercomputers.

The US DOE (Department of Energy) and Japan MEXT (Ministry of
Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology) have agreed to
pursue cooperation between the U.S. and Japan on system software for
post-petascale computing, including collaborative R&D and
international standardization of system software. They organized an
SC12 BOF session to discuss this matter and concluded that draft plans
for collaboration, coordination, and management are discussed in this
