See this website for a abstract on this talk: Flyer Part of the 10th Annual UNM CS Student Conference.

In this talk we examine how high performance computing has changed over the last 10 years and look toward the future in terms of trends. These changes have had and will continue to have a major impact on our software. Some of the software and algorithm challenges have already been encountered, such as management of communication and memory hierarchies  through a combination of compile-time and run-time techniques, but the increased  scale of computation, depth of memory hierarchies, range of latencies, and increased run-time environment variability will make these problems much harder.
