BoF Title: The Arm HPC Users Group: Experiences and Predictions for Extreme-Scale Arm Systems

Please see the SC21 link above on details on how to view the recorded video using their online system.

Session Leader: John Linford

Additional Session Leaders: Jeffrey Young, Roxana Rusitoru, Andrew Younge, Steve Poole, Simon McIntosh-Smith, Pavel Shamis, Mitsuhisa Sato, Valerio Schiavoni, Christelle Piechurski, Michèle Weiland, Jonathan Beard

BoF Description: This BoF brings together experts and luminaries from the Arm HPC Users Group to share experiences and lessons learned from developing, procuring, hosting, maintaining, using, and expanding Arm-based HPC and hyperscale systems over the last decade. RIKEN’s “Fugaku” has held the #1 spot on the last three Top500 supercomputer lists, Arm enables affordable HPC in the cloud with AWS Graviton 2 and Ampere Altra, and Bristol’s “Isambard” was recently upgraded to the largest Arm-based HPC system in Europe. We will expand on the recent announcements of NVIDIA Grace, ETRI K-AB21, and SiPearl Rhea with a look at future Arm-based systems.
