Workshop: E2SC: Energy Efficient Supercomputing

Date: Sunday, November 16, 2014, 09:00 AM - 05:30 PM

Room: 291

Description: With Exascale systems on the horizon, we have ushered in an era with power and energy consumption as the primary concerns for scalable computing. To achieve a viable Exaflop high performance computing capability, revolutionary methods are required with a stronger integration among hardware features, system software and applications. Equally important are the capabilities for fine-grained spatial and temporal measurement and control to facilitate these layers for energy efficient computing across all layers. Current approaches for energy efficient computing rely heavily on power efficient hardware in isolation. However, it is pivotal for hardware to expose mechanisms for energy efficiency to optimize power and energy consumption for various workloads. At the same time, high fidelity measurement techniques, typically ignored in data-center level measurement, are of high importance for scalable and energy efficient inter-play in different layers of application, system software and hardware.
