    Celeritas: Bringing Exascale Computing to HEP Detector Simulation

    Within the next decade experimental High Energy Physics (HEP) will (mostly) finish building its next generation of particle detectors. This includes upgrades to the Large Hadron Collider and its main experiments, and completing the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE). This new Era brings a myriad of challenges, many being on the computational front. As DOE consolidates its network of Leadership Computing Facilities (LCFs) with supercomputers capable of reaching Exaflops of processing power, it is fundamental to better integrate these LCFs with HEP computing workflows. In this talk I will provide an overview of computing in HEP and its many challenges, and present Celeritas, a novel GPU Monte Carlo particle transport code developed by researchers from ORNL, Fermilab, ANL, and BNL, that aims to close the gap between DOE's LCFs and HEP experiments.
