The PRACE Digest 1/2014 includes a collection of articles about science and research supported by PRACE via the PRACE Calls for Proposals and the Distributed European Computing Initiative.
The objective of this Support Action, co-funded by the European Commission is to build a european vision and roadmap to address the challenges of the new generation of massively parallel systems composed of millions of heterogeneous cores which will provide multi-Petaflop performances in the next few years and Exaflop performances in 2020**.
More information on the project and its structure and objectives are available in the section Project.
Details on Work Groups and experts involved can be found in the section "Working Groups"
*The speed of a supercomputer is measured in "FLOPS", FLoating Point Operations Per Second, "Petascale" supercomputers can process 1015 FLOPS. Exascale supercomputers can process 1018 FLOPS, one million teraflops.
Massively parallel systems will engage the HPC community for the next 20 years in defining new generations of applications and simulation platforms.Read More

"In Search of an Exascale Roadmap" written by Thomas Sterling, January 2012
In this exclusive interview with Indiana University’s Thomas Sterling, we break down a number of exascale topics with a candid look at the good, the bad, and the – well, not so attractive efforts and results of 2011
