International Workshop on Legacy HPC Application Migration 2015


Paper submission due: August 20, 2015. (date corrected)

To be held in conjunction with CANDAR'15, Sapporo, Japan,
December 8-11, 2015.

In HPC software development, a high priority is given to performance.
As system-specific optimizations are almost always required to fully
exploit the potential of a system, application programmers usually
optimize their application programs for particular systems.
Whenever the target system of an application program is changed to
a new one, thus, they need to adapt the program to the new system.
This is so-called legacy HPC application migration.
The migration cost increases with the hardware complexity of target
systems.  Since future HPC systems are expected to be extremely
massive and heterogeneous, migration will require more efforts and
will be essential for performance in the upcoming extreme-scale
computing era.

Therefore, this International Workshop on Legacy HPC Application
Migration (LHAM) offers an opportunity to share practices and
experience of legacy HPC application migration, and also discuss
coming and developing technologies and research directions
to reduce the migration cost.

This workshop is held as one of colocated workshops of CANDAR'15:
