Development of System Software Technologies for post-Peta Scale High Performance Computing

Research Supervisor
Akinori Yonezawa (Co-director, RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science)
Year Started


The research area aims at developing system software technologies as well as related systems to be used for high performance computing in the post generations of the Japanese national supercomputer K.
More concretely, research and development will be conducted for system software enabling us to exploit maximum efficiency and reliability from supercomputers which will be composed of general purpose many-core processors as well as special purpose processors (so called GPGPU) in the second half of (and/or after) 2010’s. In addition to the system software such as programming languages, compilers, runtime systems, operation systems, communication middleware, and file systems, application development support systems and ultra-large data processing systems are the targets for research and development. Also, the targets include system software in the overlapping layers of software stack, which encourages real usages of developed system software.

Strategic Sector

Creation of Basic Technologies for System Software Essential to Massive Parallel Processing (MPP) Computation with Manycore and other Processors
