General Information
The PMP 2013 workshop will occupy one day of  the Fourth International Green Computing Conference (IGCC 2013). There will be no separate registration for the workshop. All workshop attendees will be registering for the IGCC conference. All accepted papers will be published in workshop proceedings together with other workshops by the IEEE Computer Society Press and the IEEE online library.

For the Travel and Registration information, please refer to the main conference IGCC 2013 webpage. 

Power dissipation has already become one of the foremost considerations for computer system design. Except for low power hardware design, software-based power management techniques are equally critical for solving the power problem of computer systems. As the basic of power management related research, power measurement and profiling aim to measure or estimate the power dissipation of different levels. These techniques are globally used in many areas. For example, hardware performance counter based power profiling can be used to supply on-line power information for power-aware scheduling algorithms. Furthermore, the estimated block-level or instruction-level power information can be used to analyze software power behaviors. Moreover, direct power measurement with hardware devices is also critical for validating the effectiveness of power-aware strategies. Recent work is more concentrated on estimating the power of different levels with software power models. In addition, designing power-aware strategies based on the estimated on-line power information requires to do more deeply research. This workshop aims to bring together researchers from different domains that have faced power measurement and profiling issues to share their successes as well as the challenges they face.

This workshop will be of interest to researchers, graduate students, and practitioners in several areas such as operating systems, computer architecture, distributed systems, mobile computing, high performance computing, and social science.

Topics of interest
The workshop seeks papers that address theoretical, experimental, and work in-progress in the area of power measurement and profiling in computer systems. Topics covered by the workshop will include, but are not limited to, the following:
* Power modeling for general purpose computer systems
* Power modeling for mobile devices
* Power modeling for virtualization systems
* Power/performance analysis
* Power measurement tools and methods
* On-line power information based scheduling
* Software power behavior analysis
* Power profiling software
* Power-aware strategies
* On-chip thermal measurement
* System power decomposition

Camera-ready final papers due:	May 31th, 2013
Workshop (and IGCC):	June 26-29, 2013

Submission Guidelines and Publication
Authors are invited to submit manuscripts reporting original unpublished research and recent developments in the topics related to the workshop. Submissions should include an abstract, key words, the e-mail address of the corresponding author. The submission should follow the template found by clicking MS-Word here (MS-Word Template Instructions) or LaTex here (LaTex Template Instructions).

To directly access submission please go to https://www.easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?conf=igcc13ws. Submission of a paper should be regarded as an undertaking that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and attend the workshop to present the work.

Each submitted paper will be peer reviewed and the comments will be provided to the authors. The accepted papers will be published in the workshop  proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society Press and IEEE online library.
