    Title: Workshop on International Cooperation for Extreme-Scale Computing

    Abstract: Solutions to growing challenges to performance growth in the era of many-core and accelerator technologies will only be fully realized through international cooperation in adoption and collaboration in development and application. A number of next-generation extreme-scale initiatives have been planned or initiated in the last year worldwide with some engaging international cooperation. Last year at ISC-13 an initial workshop was conducted on international cooperation for trans-Petascale computing, highlighting in part the new cooperative agreements between Japan and the US. This meeting also included briefings from other African and Asia programs as well as from Russia. This year a follow-on workshop will extend the range of cooperation and provide a detailed vision of the worldwide directions towards extreme-scale computing systems, software support, and perhaps most important strategic applications as they relate to national needs. A goal of this workshop is nurture future international collaboration and the sharing of mutual requirements, capabilities, and results. Leaders in HPC from many nations will participate and contribute to this daylong meeting.
