Programming Environment Research Team
RIKEN Center for Computational Science
(Team Leader: Mitsuhisa Sato)

[Research field]
RIKEN Center for Computational Science (R-CCS), led by Center Director Satoshi Matsuoka, is an international research center in high performance computing and computational science in Japan. Our objectives are to investigate "the Science of (high performance) computing, by computing, and for computing", to research and develop our technologies (R-CCS technology) and software (R-CCS software), which we consider our core competence, in order to produce world-leading scientific and engineering results for use in Japan as well as globally.

Also, R-CCS started operating Japan's national flagship supercomputer, the K computer, as a shared national facility to support a wide range of research activities in 2011. Following K's success, development work on its successor, Supercomputer Fugaku, was launched in April 2014.

The Programming Environment Research Team is an R-CCS laboratory for researches and developments on parallel programming models and language to exploit full potentials of large-scale parallel systems and increase productivity of parallel programming. We will conduct researches for programming models for future high-performance computing, including programming models for large-scale parallel many-core systems, post-K supercomputer "Fugaku".
