Fourth International Workshop on Software Engineering for High Performance Computing in Computational Science & Engineering (SE-HPCCSE 2016)
Sunday 13 November 2016, 2:000pm-5:00pm, Room 251-E
Description: Researchers are increasingly using HPC, including GPGPUs and computing clusters, for computational science and engineering (CSE) applications. Unfortunately, when developing HPC software, developers must solve reliability, availability, and maintainability problems in extreme scales, understand domain specific constraints, deal with uncertainties inherent in scientific exploration, and develop algorithms that use computing resources efficiently. Software engineering (SE) researchers have developed tools and practices to support development tasks, including: validation and verification, design, requirements management, and maintenance. HPC CSE software requires appropriately tailored SE tools/methods. The SE-HPCCSE workshop addresses this need by bringing together members of the SE and HPC CSE communities to share perspectives, present findings from research and practice, and generate an agenda to improve tools and practices for developing HPC CSE software. This workshop builds on the success of the 2013-2015 editions.
