**** TOPICS ****
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- 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?
