Workshop on "Sustainable Supercomputing"
November 12, 2023
Denver, Colorado, USA

Held in conjunction with the International Conference for
High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC23),
Nov 12-17, 2023, Denver, Colorado, USA.


Providing a sustainable path for supercomputing is a pressing topic for our community, industry, and governments.
Supercomputing has an insatiable appetite for computational cycles, while we face increasing challenges of delivering
performance per Watt advances with silicon technology trends. All within the context of climate change, the drive
towards net-zero, and economic pressures driven by geo-political challenges.

Improving the sustainability of supercomputing provides many opportunities when the end-to-end cycle is considered.
From the design of computational circuits and systems; to the power and cooling that is used to operate them, along
with the suite of software tools used to administrate, maintain, and raise operational efficiency of HPC systems. All elements
of the system must be considered, from compute nodes and interconnects, to IO and storage components of the system.

This workshop will gather users, researchers, hardware and software developers to address opportunities and challenges of
sustainability in the supercomputing context.

We solicit papers on all topics related to sustainable supercomputing, from data centres to hardware, and for system software
to applications. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

* Application energy/power efficiency
* System software for managing/optimising power
* System and data centre power monitoring
* Energy efficient data centres
* Embodied carbon

Submission Guidelines:
We request the submission of short papers (4 pages including references) using the same format as the SC23 conference
(i.e., using the ACM conference template).  All submitted papers will undergo a rigorous review process, and each will have
at least three reviews by the program committee members. Papers will be accepted based on their technical contributions.
Submission will be made through the SC submission site through linking (https://submissions.supercomputing.org/).

Accepted papers will be published with the ACM Computer Society in the ACM Digital Library. At least one author of an
accepted paper must register for and present the paper at the workshop in person.

Important Dates:
Abstract Submission Deadline: 4th August 2023
Paper Submission Deadline: 11th August 2023
Author Notification: 1st September 2023
Camera Ready Paper Deadline: 22nd September 2023
