April 26, 2013 - EnA-HPC 2013 (Fourth International Conference on Energy-Aware High Performance Computing)
CALL FOR PAPERS Fourth International Conference on Energy-Aware High Performance Computing (EnA-HPC 2013) Held in Conjunction with 7th Parallel Tools Workshop Dresden, Germany, September 2-3, 2013 http://www.ena-hpc.org
Power provisioning and energy consumption become major challenges in the field of high performance computing. Energy costs over the lifetime of an HPC installation are in the range of the acquisition costs. The greening of HPC therefore is an important research field that attracts many scientists. Up to now we see different approaches on different abstraction levels in an HPC environment. For example, vendors work on power efficient processor architectures and software developers on mechanisms of how to use them. However, there is no integrated approach yet that would show ways of how to operate an HPC environment in an energy efficient way. The EnA-HPC conference aims at bringing together researchers, developers, vendors, and users to discuss the energy consumption challenge that HPC is facing. Some of the key issues are applications, modeling, simulation, measurement, analysis and optimization, facility issues and business concepts. EnA-HPC will provide a forum to present novel solutions that tackle these issues.
Submission Deadline: April 26, 2013 Notification of Acceptance: May 24, 2013 Final Papers Due: June 02, 2013
The scope of the conference comprises the following fields of interests:
* Applications: How to develop energy-efficient algorithms?
* Modeling: How can we model the overall energy consumption of an HPC environment for given applications?
* Simulation: How can we simulate the behavior of energy saving concepts for a given HPC environment and a given program?
* Benchmarking: How can we benchmark the program/architecture energy efficiency?
* Measurement: How can we measure relevant data in the hardware/software environment?
* Analysis: How can we understand the measured data and deduce means to mitigate the energy problem?
* Deployment of mechanisms: How can we reduce energy consumption by changing the HW/SW-environment?
* Deployment of new hardware: Energy optimized processors, network components, storage components etc.
* Facility issues: How can we optimize our computer room for optimal power efficiency?
* Business concept: How to budget raising electricity costs?
