Towards Exascale: The growing pains of industry strength CAE software

    Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther


    In the Exascale community, there is some concern that commercial computer aided engineering (CAE) software will not be ready to take advantage of Exascale systems when they eventually come online. This talk will consider this issue from three perspectives: (i) Industry end users whose business will benefit from early access to Exascale computers; (ii) Independent software vendors who develop and market engineering software and (iii) Open source software initiatives led by Universities and government laboratories. Each of these stakeholders has a unique set of needs and motivational drivers that, if linked together in a simple and elegant way, can lead to the development, use and exploitation of CAE software on Exascale systems. The speaker will draw upon academic experience as leader of an open source software project and business insight through roles at NAFEMS and PRACE to set out a possible roadmap towards Exascale CAE.
