applications, tools, software programming models and libraries, and 
other technologies necessary to exploit future exascale systems.
+ enabling and optimising applications for exascale in any area;
+ developing and enhancing algorithms for exascale systems;
+ aiding the exploitation of massively parallel systems through tools, 
e.g. performance analysis, debugging, development environments;
+ programming models and libraries for exascale;
+ exascale runtimes and system software;

application execution;
+ novel uses of current generation and future exascale systems;
+ new hardware technologies and their exploitation to solve exascale 

Research and/or experience that brings together current theory and 
practice is particularly welcome.
