Designing a New Operating System for Exascale Architectures

Argonne National Laboratory has been awarded a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science to lead Argo, a multi-institutional research project to design and develop a platform-neutral prototype of an exascale operating system and runtime software.

Researchers in Argonne’s Mathematics and Computer Science Division will collaborate with scientists from Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, as well as with several universities nationwide, on the three-year, $9.75 million project.
