Over the past forty years, progress in supercomputing has tracked progress in integrated circuit scaling and this has resulted in exponential improvements in system-level performance. However, changes in device physics now seriously threaten further sustained progress toward Exaflop HPC systems. This workshop will begin with a summary of a recent DARPA study highlighting issues associated with Exaflop computing architecture. This will be followed by a series of invited talks covering a wide range of approaches to mitigating the Exaflop computing roadblocks, including novel computer architectures, power-aware algorithm design, power efficiency metrics, and power efficient facility design.
