Scientific computing as a means of discovery  offers the promise of solving some of the most enduring challenges in science.  Understanding global climate, unraveling the mysteries of turbulence, predicting natural disasters such as earthquakes and tsunamis, untangling the complexities of life by simulating the proteins that make its building-blocks —all these, and more, are being tackled by scientists today using high-performance computing (HPC).
More than ever, today presents an opportunity for tremendous discoveries through HPC, thanks to the advent of new computer architectures that bring huge increases in performance, at lower power consumption and much reduced prices. The whole community is buzzing with enthusiasm for scientific computing on the latest graphics processors, or GPUs.
The challenge of programming for these massively parallel processors are daunting, but the rewards considerable.  On the face of this challenge, international collaboration and advanced training of young scientists are the two most effective tools for success.
