HiPEAC Workshop on Energy-efficient Servers for Cloud and Edge Computing
January 23th, 2017, Stockholm, Sweden

Scope of the workshop


Emerging applications like cloud computing and Big Data analytics have increased significantly the volume of traffic in data centers. However, the speed and energy efficiency improvements of typical general-purpose processors and memories used in servers has slowed down dramatically. Next generation servers will need more energy-efficient hardware as well as software ecosystems to sustain the vast amount of data center traffic which is expected to grow even more with the advent of the Internet-of-Things. This workshop aims to present the most recent work on next generation energy-efficient servers and foster the interaction between the universities, research centers and industry that work on this area.


In particular, we call for original papers on the domain of servers for cloud- and edge-computing, microservers, hardware accelerators for servers, micro-architectures for low-power, dependable and/or secure servers, run-time systems, middleware and programming frameworks that are used to reduce the power consumption in the data centers and/or deal with potential faults induced by reliability/variability issues.


Topics include

- Energy-efficient servers

- Edge servers

- Hardware accelerators for servers/data centers

- Hardware accelerators for machine learning, graphs and databases

- Microarchitectures for low power server processors

- Reconfigurable computing for customized servers

- Application benchmarks on embedded-based servers

- Low power server interconnects

- Programming frameworks for energy efficient servers

- Energy-efficient resource management

- Run-time system software

- Disaggregated and Rack-scale Computing

- Server architectures/system software/testbeds for near-data computing
