Science simulation, data, and learning applications can greatly benefit from the massive computational resources available with an exascale system. Because of this, the U.S. Department of Energy is planning to deploy three new exascale machines, including the Aurora system scheduled for delivery to the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility in CY2021. 

This talk will provide a high-level overview of Aurora, existing hardware, supported programming models, tools, libraries, and I/O. We’ll also discuss migration paths from current or proprietary programming models to programming models that are supported on Aurora and current testbed systems.
