SIAM CSE 2023 Minisymposium

Bridging the Gap from HPC Software Engineering to Academic Research

Wednesday and Thursday, March 1-2, 2023

Room G107, RAI Congress Centre | Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Organizers: Keita Teranishi, Oak Ridge National Laboratory; Jeffrey Young, Georgia Institute of Technology; Alessandro Orso, Georgia Institute of Technology

Efforts like the US Exascale Computing Program (ECP) have focused on accelerating scientific codes for next-generation HPC systems as well as bringing modern software engineering practices to these applications. Efforts like ECP focus large amounts of developer resources on a few important codebases, but a much larger body of scientific and research codes do benefit from the same attention, especially in terms of making codes accessible, interoperable, and reliable. This minisymposium will engage a set of expert panelists and the audience in understanding how we can bring best practices for software engineering to the wider audience of scientific software developers.
