Exascale computing has been the subject of study and analysis for almost ten years. Dozens of voluminous reports have been published. R&D related to the many issues and challenges involved in achieving usable and affordable exascale computers has resulted in thousands of papers and presentations. The time has come to mount a focused effort that applies the insights learned by those studies to build exascale systems. President Obama’s Executive order of July 2015 established the National Strategic Computing Initiative, a key objective of which is to accelerate delivery of a capable exascale computing system.  The Executive Order assigns the lead role for pursuing that objective to the US Department of Energy Office of Science and the DOE Nuclear Security Administration.

This talk will present an overview of the efforts that are underway to put in place a joint DOE-SC and NNSA project that will result in a capable exascale ecosystem and prepare mission critical scientific and engineering applications to take advantage of that ecosystem.
