DescriptionHeterogeneous computing architectures are unavoidable moving towards the era of exascale computing. Computing nodes are being built with the ever-increasing depth of the hierarchy. Hardware as well as performance portability are key capabilities to make efficient use of them. Particle-in-cell (PIC) methods are the method of choice in computational simulations of many physical applications including but not limited to particle accelerators, nuclear fusion, and astrophysics. Hence, portability in the context of PIC schemes is the need of the hour to carry out these extreme-scale simulations in current and next-generation architectures. This mini-symposium will serve as a platform to discuss the architecture and performance of hardware-independent and, thus, portable frameworks regarding particle and grid computations.
