                               1st International Workshop on

                      Energy Efficient SuperComputing (E2SC)

       Held in conjunction with SC'13, Denver, Colorado, USA

                             November 17th-22nd 2013


                                            Call For Papers



With Exascale systems on the horizon, we will be ushering in an era with

and energy consumption as the primary concerns for scalable computing. To

achieve viable high performance, revolutionary methods are required with a

stronger integration among hardware features, system software and

Equally important are the capabilities for fine-grained spatial and

measurement and control to facilitate energy efficient computing across

all layers. Current approaches for energy efficient computing rely heavily

power efficient hardware in isolation. However, it is pivotal for hardware

expose mechanisms for energy efficiency to optimize power and energy

consumption for various workloads and to reduce data motion, a major

of energy use. At the same time, high fidelity measurement techniques,

typically ignored in data-center level measurement, are of high importance

for scalable and energy efficient inter-play in different layers of

application, system software and hardware.

This workshop seeks to address the important energy efficiency aspects in

HPC community that have not been previously addressed by aspects covered in

the data center or cloud computing communities. Emphasis is given to the

applications view related to significant energy efficiency improvements and

to the required hardware/software stack that must include necessary power

performance measurement and analysis harnesses.

Current tools are often limited by hardware capabilities and their lack of

information about the characteristics of a given workload/application. In

same manner, hardware techniques, like dynamic voltage frequency scaling,

often limited by their granularity (very coarse power management) or by

scope (a very limited system view). More rapid realization of energy

will require significant increases in measurement resolution and

techniques.  Moreover, the interplay between performance, power and

reliability add another layer of complexity to this already difficult group

of challenges.

Workshop Focus


We encourage submissions in the following areas:

- Tools for analyzing power and energy with different granularities and

    scope from hardware (e.g. component, core, node, rack, system) or

    software views (e.g. threads, tasks, processes, etc) or both.

- Techniques that enable power and energy optimizations at different

    scale levels for HPC systems.

- Integration of power aware techniques in applications and throughout

    the software stack of HPC systems.

- Characterization of current state-of-the-art HPC system and

    applications in terms of Power.

- Analysis of future technologies that will provide improved energy

    consumption and management on future HPC systems.
