A Birds of a Feather session at SC18, on Wednesday 14 November 2018
Software engineering (SWE) for computational science and engineering (CSE) is challenging, with ever-more sophisticated and higher fidelity simulation of ever-larger and more complex problems involving larger data volumes, more domains, and more researchers. Targeting both commodity and custom high-end computers multiplies these challenges. We invest a great deal in creating these codes, but rarely talk about that experience; we just focus on the results.
Our goal is to raise awareness of SWE for CSE on supercomputers as a major challenge, and to develop an international “community of practice” to continue these important discussions outside of workshops and other “traditional” venues.
