Call for Papers

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.

The International Conference on Energy Aware High Performance Computing brings 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 provides a forum to present novel solutions that tackle these issues.

Extended Deadline

Full Paper Submission April 11th, 2014 April 25th, 2014
Acceptance Notification May 23rd, 2014 May 26th, 2014
Camera-Ready Submission May 28th, 2014 June 1st, 2014

Topics

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?

This list is not intended to be exhaustive – feel inspired and propose additional aspects!
