The development of an exascale computing capability with machines capable of executing O(10^18) operations per second in the 2020 time frame will be characterized by significant and dramatic changes in computing hardware architecture from current (2010) petascale
high-performance computers. From the perspective of computational science, this will be at least as disruptive as the transition from vector supercomputing to parallel supercomputing that occurred in the 1990s. The impact of these architectural changes on future applications development for the computational sciences community can now be
anticipated in very general terms. In this talk, I will summarize what I believe will be the major changes in the next decade for applications development and scientific simulation.
