In HPC software development, a high priority is given to
performance. Many application developers usually adapt their
application programs for a particular system to fully exploit the
potential of the system with system-specific optimizations. Whenever
their target system is updated to an emerging system, they are
required to evolve the application programs to maximize the
performance on the new generation system. This is so-called legacy HPC
application migration. The migration cost increases with the hardware
complexity of target systems, and moreover, future HPC systems are
expected to be extremely massive and heterogeneous. Therefore,
software evolution will require more efforts and will be essential for
scaling up the performance in the upcoming extreme-scale computing

The goal of this workshop is to share practices and experiences on
software evolution such as modernizing legacy applications on the
latest HPC systems, and also discuss coming and developing
technologies and research directions to improve the performance and
productivity of applications on emerging systems. In particular, we
will focus on the following topics of interest, but not limited to:

 - Programming models, languages and frameworks for facilitating HPC
   software evolution and refactoring.

 - Algorithms and implementation methodologies for future-generation
   computing systems, including manycores and accelerators (GPUs, Xeon
   Phi, etc).

 - Automatic performance tuning techniques, runtime systems and
   domain-specific languages for hiding the complexity of underlying
   system architectures.

 - Practices and experiences on porting of legacy applications and

The LHAM is to be held in conjunction with CANDAR'17
