Over the last twenty years, the international open source community has increasingly provided the software at the heart of the world’s high-performance computing systems. The community provides everything from operating system components to compilers and advanced math libraries. As an international community, however, we have only loosely coordinated activities and plans for development. The new rapidly changing technologies in multicore, power consumption, GPGPUs, and memory architectures creates an opportunity for the community to work together and build an international program to design, build, and deliver the software so critical the science goals of our institutions.
