Toward a Common Component Architecture for High-Performance Scientific Computing
This paper describes work in progress to develop a standard for interoperability among high-performance scientific components. This research stems from growing recognition that the scientific community needs to better manage the complexity of multidisciplinarysimulations and better address scalable performance issues on parallel and distributed architectures. Driving forces are the need for fast connections among components that perform numerically intensive work and for parallel collective interactions among components that use multiple processes or threads. This paper focuses on the areas we believe are most crucial in this context, namely, an interface definition language that supports scientific abstractions for specifying component interfaces and a ports connection model for specifying component interactions.
