                CALL FOR PAPERS


  Workshop on Power and Energy Aspects of Computation (PEAC)

   to be held in conjunction with the PPAM 2013 Conference
                  September 8-11, 2013
                    Warsaw, Poland


Over the past years power and energy consumption have become the driving
metrics for the design of computing hardware including multicore CPUs
and accelerators. Power-conscious designs also dominate large
supercomputing installations as well as large industrial complexes
devoted to cloud computing and big data analytics. With serious
financial and environmental consequences, large scale computing
community has to now cope with careful re-engineering of software to fit
demanding power levels and tight energy envelopes.

This workshop will present research into new ways of addressing these
pressing issues of energy preservation, power consumption, and heat
dissipation while attaining best possible performance levels at the
scale demanded by modern scientific challenges. We hope to provide a
vibrant forum for exchanging ideas, methodologies, and insights into
more sustainable computing solutions.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following.

- Power and energy consumption analysis, modeling and evaluation of
   modern and emerging computer architectures and systems
- Energy-conscious algorithms and applications
- Software solutions, techniques, and paradigms for energy conservation
- Optimization techniques that directly influence power consumption in
   computing, namely by using DPM/DVFS
- Power and energy consumption simulation, optimization, management and
   evaluation tools
- Position papers and survey reports in the topic of power, energy, and
   heat in large scale computing installations


Submitted papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their
originality, scientific merit and relevance to the workshop topics.
Papers presented during the workshop are included into the proceedings
of PPAM Conference and are published after the conference by Springer in
the LNCS series.

The paper need to be formatted according to the Springer LaTeX style
according to the guidelines and instructions posted on the PPAM
conference web site - http://ppam.pl.

Paper submission:    30 April  2013 at 11:59PM EST
Author notification: 15 June 2013
Camera-ready due:    15 November 2013

Workshop Organizers

- Piotr Luszczek, University of Tennessee Knoxville
- Leonel Sousa,  IST/TU Lisbon and INESC-ID
- Rich Vuduc, Georgia Tech

Publication Opportunities

We are currently in the process of seeking opportunities for a special
issue of a journal to feature extended versions of the papers submitted
to the workshop.  The prospective journal publication will undergo a
separate review process.
