Eleventh IEEE Workshop on
High-Performance, Power-Aware Computing (HPPAC)

May 29th, 2015

to be held in conjunction with IPDPS
May 25-29, 2015
Hyderabad, India


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 (HP-PAC). HP-PAC 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.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

  • Novel power-aware architectures for HPC
  • Power-aware middleware for HPC
  • Power-aware runtime systems for HPC
  • Reduced power / energy / heat algorithms & applications
  • Surveys or studies of power / energy / heat usage of HPC applications


The proceedings of this workshop will be published together with the proceedings of other IPDPS '15 workshops by the IEEE Computer Society Press.
