Mission of the Exasca||ab

Our mission is to perform cutting-edge research and development in programming languages, compilers, tools and applications for performance, productivity and power in High Performance Computing and Big Data systems. We strive to increase programmer productivity, enhance application performance, develop novel implementation technologies that anticipate architectural changes and emerging user needs, and provide reference implementations of our ideas. We provide the open-source OpenUH compiler to the HPC community. We are active members of open standards such as OpenMP, OpenACC, the MultiCore Association (MCA), PMIx, UCX, and OpenSHMEM.

Please see current research positions & project opportunities.

The group is led by Dr. Barbara Chapman.
