Call For Papers



Fourth International Conference on
Energy-Aware High Performance Computing
(EnA-HPC 2013)

Held in Conjunction with
7th Parallel Tools Workshop

Dresden, Germany, September 2-3, 2013



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. The
greening of HPC therefore is an important 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
use them. However, there is no integrated approach yet that would
show ways of how to operate an HPC environment in an energy efficient

The EnA-HPC conference aims at bringing together researchers,
developers, vendors, and users to discuss the energy consumption
challenge that HPC is facing. Some of the key issues are applications,
modeling, simulation, measurement, analysis and optimization, facility
issues and business concepts. EnA-HPC will provide a forum to present
novel solutions that tackle these issues.


Submission Deadline: May 10, 2013
Notification of Acceptance: May 28, 2013
Final Papers Due: June 04, 2013

The scope of the conference comprises the following fields of interests:

* Applications: How to develop energy-efficient algorithms?
* Modeling: 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 a given HPC environment and a given
* 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?
