This final report of the initially funded stage of the HPC/NA roadmapping activity brings together elements from the individual workshops to date, the input from various groups and the completed desk work reflecting related activities. The report is the result of a 9‐month funded roadmapping activity in which there were three workshops bringing together HPC application researchers and developers, computer scientists and numerical analysts, a significant desk‐based study of existing activities and contact with many groups around the UK. The resulting findings should not be taken as the final word, as there are still groups who may not have had the opportunity to contribute or comment, and the picture is by necessity evolving. The work that has started with this initial project will continue and the roadmap as presented will continue to grow in evidence base. During the latter part of this project an international activity, the International Exascale Software Project ( was initiated to develop an international collaboration to form a roadmap for software infrastructure for extreme computing. We have included the findings of that activity to date in this report as it is clear that the UK roadmap must sit within the context of the IESP roadmap.
