    Topics of interest
    The organisers seek novel contributions in all areas associated with applications, tools, software programming models and libraries, and other technologies necessary to exploit future exascale systems.
    + enabling and optimising applications for exascale in any area;
    + developing and enhancing algorithms for exascale systems;
    + aiding the exploitation of massively parallel systems through tools, e.g. performance analysis, debugging, development environments;
    + programming models and libraries for exascale;
    + exascale runtimes and system software;
    + evaluating best practice in HPC concerning large-scale facilities and application execution;
    + novel uses of current generation and future exascale systems;
    + new hardware technologies and their exploitation to solve exascale challenges.

    Research and/or experience that brings together current theory and practice is particularly welcome.

    Participation Guidelines
    We seek contributions in the form of a one page abstract for oral or poster presentation.
    There will be a prize for the best paper and for the best student contribution.
