Call For Papers



3rd International Conference on
Energy-Aware High Performance Computing
(EnA-HPC 2012)

Hamburg, Germany, September 12-14th, 2012

Submission deadline: April 29th, 2012


Power provisioning and energy consumption become major challenges in the
field of high performance computing. Energy costs over the lifetime of
an HPC installation are in the range of the acquisition costs. Green
IT became the latest hype and promises to solve the problem, however,
it is beyond the realm of HPC.

The greening of HPC is a new research field that attracts many
scientists. Up to now we see different approaches on different
abstraction levels in an HPC environment. For example, vendors work on
power efficient processor architectures and software developers on
mechanisms of how to trigger them. However, there is no integrated
approach yet that would show ways of how to operate an HPC environment
in an energy efficient way.

The Third Conference on Energy-Aware High Performance Computing
(EnA-HPC) aims at bringing together researchers, developers, users and
vendors to discuss the energy issue in HPC and to present novel solutions
to tackle the problem of energy efficiency.

Through the presentation of contributed papers, vendor contributions,
and invited talks, attendees will have the opportunity to share ideas
and experiences to contribute to the improvement of energy efficiency
in high performance computing.

Topics of interest for the conference include, but are not limited to:

* Applications: How to develop energy-efficient algorithms?
* Modelling: 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 HPC environments?
* 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?

The conference series started in 2010 in Hamburg and attracted about 60
researchers and professionals who are interested in that field. Conference
proceedings were published in Springer´s journal Computer Science -
and Development. In 2012 we will follow the same format.
