The 13th International Workshop on High-Performance, Power-Aware Computing

Program co-chairs:       Shuaiwen Leon Song, Pacific Northwest National Lab
                                         Richard Vuduc, Georgia Tech
Publicity Chair:          Shirley Moore, Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Proceedings Chair:          Joseph Manzano, Pacific Northwest National Lab


To be held on Monday, May 29, in conjunction with IPDPS 2017.


Power and energy are now recognized as first-order constraints in
high-performance computing.  Optimizing performance under power and energy
bounds requires coordination across not only the software stack (compilers,
operating and runtime systems, job schedulers) but also coordination with
cooling systems and outwards to electrical suppliers.  As we continue to
move towards exascale and extreme scale computing, understanding how power
translates to performance becomes an increasingly critical problem.

The purpose of this workshop is to provide a forum where cutting-edge
research in the above topic can be shared with others in the community. As
such, while we welcome full (10 page) papers as in previous years, we are
now also soliciting short papers (4 pages max).  While both should address
power aware computing issues, short papers will be judged primarily on
their interest to the community.  As such, these may be position papers,
initial results, open problems, software announcements, or interesting work
that does not reach the level of a full-paper treatment. All papers will be
subject to single-blind peer review, and the quality of
both the short and standard papers is expected to be high.

Topics of particular interest include (but are not limited to):

* Performance optimization under node, job, cluster and site power bounds
* Power/performance tradeoffs across accelerators, processors and DRAM
* Cooling/performance tradeoffs
* Translating budgetary bounds into power and energy bounds.
* Power-efficient system design, from computer center to silicon
* Effects of compiler optimizations on application power and energy
* Power- and energy-aware job schedulers, runtime systems and operating
* Models of power and performance, from processors and components to
computer centers
* Evaluations of hardware power and energy controls

Submission Guidelines

We invite two kinds of submissions to this workshop: (1) Full-length
research papers (10-page limit); (2) Short papers (4-page limit), which can
take the form of position papers, experience reports, or
surveys/comparisons of runtime systems and middleware. Papers should not
exceed ten (or four) single-spaced pages (including figures, tables and
references) using 12-point font on 81⁄2x11-inch pages. Submissions will be
judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance,
presentation quality, and relevance. Submitted papers should not have
appeared in or be under consideration for another venue. A full peer-review
process will be followed with each paper being reviewed by at least three
members of the program committee.
Submissions should follow the IEEE Conference Proceedings templates found
Camera-ready copy will need to conform to IPDPS guidelines; these will be
announced during author notification.

Important dates

Paper Submission: January 22th
Paper Notification: February 18th
Final Paper Due: March 1st
