DescriptionAs KAUST prepares to take delivery of “Shaheen-2” we look back five years and ahead ten years at the evolution of architectures, algorithms, and applications. We consider, in particular, the pressures that fundamental architectural limitations place on algorithms at the core of applications employed in KAUST scientific and engineering campaigns in chemistry, climate, combustion, fluids, materials, and petroleum reservoirs. We conclude by stating some aspirations for Shaheen-2, a globally “top 10” Cray XC40 with 200,000 tightly integrated cores, to support and promote a dynamic era of high performance computational science and engineering in Saudi Arabia.
Professor Keyes is the director of the Extreme Computing Research Center at KAUST. He earned a BSE in Aerospace and Mechanical Sciences from Princeton University in 1978 and a PhD in Applied Mathematics from Harvard University in 1984. Prof Keyes works at the interface between parallel computing and the numerical analysis of partial differential equations. Before joining KAUST as a founding dean in 2009, he led DOE scalable solver software projects and taught at Columbia University and Yale.
