                            Call For Papers


We will be ushering in an era with power and energy consumption as the
primary concerns for scalable computing in the exascale era and beyond. To
achieve viable high performance, revolutionary methods are required with a
stronger integration among hardware features, system software and applications.
Equally important are the capabilities for fine-grained spatial and temporal
measurement and control to facilitate energy efficient computing across all
layers. Current approaches for energy efficient computing rely heavily on power
efficient hardware in isolation. However, it is pivotal for hardware to expose
mechanisms for energy efficiency to optimize power and energy consumption for
various workloads and to reduce data motion, a major component 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

This workshop seeks to address important energy efficiency aspects in the
HPC community that have not been previously addressed 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 and 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 the
same manner, hardware techniques, like dynamic voltage frequency scaling, are
often limited by their granularity (very coarse power management) or by their
scope (a very limited system view). More rapid realization of energy savings
will require significant increases in measurement resolution and optimization
techniques.  Moreover, the interplay between performance, power and
reliability add another layer of complexity to this already difficult group of

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.

- Disruptive hardware or infrastructure technologies for energy-efficient

- Analysis of future technologies that will provide improved energy
  consumption and management on future HPC systems.

- Tools and techniques for exploring trade-offs between energy efficiency
  and resilience.
