----- Workshop Summary -----

This interdisciplinary workshop is organized to explore the scientific
issues, challenges, and opportunities for supercomputing beyond the
scaling limits of Moore's Law, with the ultimate goal of keeping
supercomputing at the forefront of computing technologies. Continuing
progress of supercomputing beyond the scaling limits of Moore's Law is
likely to require a comprehensive re-thinking of technologies, ranging
from innovative materials and devices, circuits, system architectures,
programming systems, system software, and applications.

The workshop is designed to foster interdisciplinary dialog across the
necessary spectrum of stakeholders: applications, algorithms,
software, and hardware. Motivating workshop questions will include the
following. "What technologies might prevail in the Post Moore's Era?"
"How can applications effectively prepare for these changes through
co-design?" "What architectural abstractions should be in place to
represent the traditional concepts like hierarchical parallelism,
multi-tier data locality, and new concepts like variable precision,
approximate solutions, and resource tradeoff directives?" "What
programming models might insulate applications from these changes?"
