Exascale Computing for High Energy Physics: The Portability Challenge

February 25, 2022
2:00 PM – 3:30 PM

Welcome back to our Math/Physics Seminar series. For our first seminar, we welcome Dr. Meifeng Lin from the Brookhaven National Laboratory, who will speak on "Exascale Computing for High Energy Physics: The Portability Challenge," followed by a Q&A session.

Computing plays an essential role in High Energy Physics (HEP) research. From the ab initio theory calculations using lattice QCD techniques, to detector simulations and data analysis for the particle physics experiments, the computational demand has been growing rapidly due to the increased precision needed to probe new physics beyond the Standard Model. The upcoming Exascale computers hold the promise to provide orders of magnitude more computing power to support this fundamental physics research. However, the new and heterogeneous architectures in the exascale systems present many challenges to scientific software developers. In this talk, I will present some recent work on adapting HEP software to run on the future Exascale systems in the pursuit of performance portability - the notion that a single source code can run efficiently on multiple architectures. — Meifeng Lin, Ph.D., Group Leader, High-Performance Computing, Computational Science Initiative, Brookhaven National Laboratory
