Efficient use of computer arithmetic is crucial to HPC. Unfortunately, few software analysis tools exist to analyze floating-point accuracy or to recommend robust mixed-precision modifications for full-sized applications. At the same time, next-generation arithmetic formats such as Gustafson’s latest Type III unums (posits and valids) offer the possibility of better accuracy, performance, energy efficiency, and reproducibility, but their implementations and tool ecosystems are still young. The goal of this BoF is to connect researchers and industry practitioners interested in improving the state of the art in this area, and to begin to identify concrete ways to work together.
