Abstract:   As we approach the end of lithographic/Dennard scaling, the HPC community needs a way to continue performance scaling. One way of providing that scaling is an increase in the number and diversity of specialized architectures tailored for specific applications. To accelerate the architecture specification and verification of these new architectures, more rapid prototyping methods are needed. At the same time, these new architectures need software stacks and programming models to be able to actually use these new designs. In concert with this increase in architecture heterogeneity there has been a consistent march towards development of open source based hardware and software solutions for each of these components to be used in lieu of existing closed source solutions. We present OpenSuCo: Workshop for Open Source Supercomputing. This is meant to be a workshop for exploring and collaborating on building an HPC system using open-source hardware and system software IP. The goal of this workshop is to engage the HPC community and explore open source solutions for constructing an HPC system – from silicon to applications.  

Targeted Audience 
This workshop aims to bring together a diverse community of systems software and hardware architects to exchange ideas, present solutions, and identify gaps in the technology needed to construct a complete HPC system out of all open source components.
