Modularity for Supercomputing

JST CREST project "Software development for post petascale supercomputing --- Modularity for supercomputing"
2011 October to 2017 March


A single general programming language or framework that covers any subject will not be feasible for post petascale super computing. The goal of this project is to apply modern techniques for software modularity to super computing. The progress in software modularity techniques for web applications is significant in this decade. By applying these techniques, the project enables domain experts to develop frameworks specific to computing platforms and algorithms and thereby improves the efficiency of software development in super computing.
