ETP4HPC issues and maintains this SRA as a mechanism to provide contextual guidance to European Researchers and Businesses and also to guide EU priorities for research in the Horizon 2020 HPC programme.
The updated SRA is a roadmap for the achievement of European exascale capabilities focusing on the following areas: HPC System Architecture and Components, Energy and Resiliency, Programming Environment, System Software and Management, Big Data and HPC Usage Models, Balance Compute, I/O and Storage Performance, Mathematics and algorithms for extreme scale HPC systems and Extreme-Scale Demonstrators.
This SRA Update will serve as a reference text for Horizon 2020 FETHPC 16-17 recently published calls and also suggests future paths for EsDs, CoEs, ISVs, end-users etc. for calls in 18-19, when the implementation of Exascale e Demonstrators should take place. Whilst this report points heavily towards the H2020 HPC program for its delivery, the primary objective is to develop Europes HPC ecosystem and maximise its exploitation.
