Workshop Overview

The Exploiting Parallelism and Scalability (XPS) program aims to support groundbreaking research leading to a new era of parallel computing. Achieving the needed breakthroughs will require a collaborative effort among researchers representing all areas -- from services and applications down to the micro-architecture -- and will be built on new concepts, theories, and foundational principles. New approaches to achieve scalable performance and usability need new abstract models and algorithms, new programming models and languages, new hardware architectures, compilers, operating systems and run-time systems, and must exploit domain and application-specific knowledge. Research is also needed on energy efficiency, communication efficiency, and on enabling the division of effort between edge devices and clouds.

PI Meeting

XPS investigators are invited to attend this workshop, which will encompass discussions about the past, present, and future of exploiting parallelism and scalability (XPS). Specifically, the workshop will review current projects and will look forward in shaping the future of XPS. To this end, the workshop seeks to engage in "big picture" discussions in XPS and identify priorities for future research and solicitations.
