High-End Computer System Performance: Science and Engineering ISIC

The Performance ISIC will focus on how one can best execute a specific application on a given platform. The research results from this effort are expected to permit the generation of realistic bounds on achievable performance, and to answer three fundamental questions: 1) why do these limits exist; 2) how can we accelerate applications toward these limits; and 3) how can this information drive the design of future applications and high-performance computing systems.
