AB  - The first conference in what would become the ICAP series was held in 1988. At that time the most powerful computer in the world was a Cray YMP with 8 processors and a peak performance of 2 gigaflops. Today the fastest computer in the world has more than 2 million cores and a theoretical peak performance of nearly 200 petaflops. Compared to 1988, performance has increased by a factor of 100 million, accompanied by huge advances in memory, networking, big data management and analytics. By the time of the next ICAP in 2021 we will be at the dawn of the Exascale era. In this talk I will describe the advances in Computational Accelerator Physics that brought us to this point and describe what to expect in regard to High Performance Computing in the future. This writeup as based on my presentation at ICAP’18 along with some additional comments that I did not include originally due to time constraints.
