Software Technology

The goal of the ECP Software Technology focus area is to develop a comprehensive and coherent software stack that will enable application developers to productively write highly parallel applications that can portably target diverse exascale architectures.

It will accomplish this by extending current technologies to exascale where possible, performing R&D required to conceive of new approaches where necessary, coordinating with vendor efforts, and developing and deploying high-quality and robust software products.

The ECP software stack spans low-level operational software to environments and libraries for the development of high-level applications software and includes the software infrastructure to support large-scale data analysis and visualization.
