CALL FOR PARTICIPATION - Birds-of-a-Feather at SC'17

Re-configurable Computing in Exascale

BoF at the International Conference for High Performance Computing,
Networking, Storage and Analysis, Colorado Convention Center, Denver, CO.

When?  Tue Nov 14 2017, 5:15pm-7pm
Where? Room 405-406-407

While traditional HPC systems continue making great advances, it is
argued that paradigm shifts, including radical new architectures, are
needed to continue scaling performance beyond Exascale at sustainable
cost and energy levels. Such architectures will likely employ
reconfigurability or FPGAs for certain types of parallelism.

This BoF targets persons interested in these subjects aiming to
further understand their role, usage, run-time systems, programming
models, the role of open-source technology and what challenges to
widespread adoption remain. One goal is also to continue to build a
HPC FPGA community.

The BoF will follow the program given below. It will combine interactive
presentations with audience driven discussions. We will close with
a panel.
