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 HPC
application modernization. The modernization 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 era.

The goal of this workshop is to share practices and experiences on
software evolution such as modernizing 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 HPC applications and libraries.

The LHAM is to be held in conjunction with CANDAR'20
