High-performance computing: to boldly go where no human has gone before

Abstract : Computing and computational science are well on their way to enter into the exascale era while High Performance Computing (HPC) is now present in many spheres and domains of modern society. New technologies such as cloud computing, big data, and connected objects open many perspectives and possibilities that were unattainable until now. These are high times for computing and for HPC in particular. The High Performance Computing \& Simulation conference aims to bring together researchers working on various aspects of HPC, their design and use, and their applications. As has been the conference tradition, selected extended papers of HPCS 2012 are presented in this special issue. These should be interesting contributions that supplement the current state-of-the-art research in HPC. To relate these works and highlight their value, in this article, we briefly trace back the history of HPC, sketch the state of the present research and development in the field, and project some of the challenges and future trends anticipated.
