The Sixth Workshop on
High-Performance, Power-Aware Computing

19, 2010, Atlanta, Georgia, USA

  Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau

The 6th Workshop on High-Performance, Power-Aware Computing (HPPAC 2010) will be held April 19, 2010 from 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM in Atlanta, GA, USA, in conjunction with the 24th Annual International Parallel & Distributed Processing Symposium (IPDPS 2010), April 19, 2010, Atlanta, Georgia, USA

Keynote Address

Laurent Lefevre
"Between Gaps and Bursts: Supporting GREEN-* Approaches to Reduce Energy Consumption in Large Scale Distributed Systems"

The keynote was replaced because Laurent Lefevre couldn't attend the workshop due to the interrupted airline service between Europe and US.

"Green Supercomputing Comes of Age"


High-performance computing is and has always been performance-oriented. However, a consequence of the push towards maximum performance is increased energy consumption, especially in datacenters and supercomputing centers. Moreover, as peak performance is rarely attained, some of this energy consumption results in little or no performance gain. In addition, large energy consumption costs datacenters and supercomputing centers a significant amount of money and wastes natural resources.

The main goal of this workshop is to provide a timely forum for the exchange and dissemination of new ideas, techniques, and research in high-performance, power-aware computing (HPPAC). HPPAC will present research that reduces (1) power consumption, (2) energy consumption, or (3) heat generation with little or no performance penalty in high-performance computing systems. In effect, the workshop aims to move towards "greener" solutions for datacenters and supercomputing centers. Examples include Green Destiny (2001), The Green Grid (2007), The Green500 List (2007), and the INRIA Green-Net Initiative (2008).
