International Parallel and Distributed Processing Symposium

Long Beach, California USA

The Third Workshop on
High-Performance, Power-Aware Computing
March 26, 2007, Long Beach, California USA



The 3rd Workshop on High-Performance, Power-Aware Computing (HPPAC 2007) will be held March 26, 2007 from 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM at the Renaissance Long Beach Hotel (Roselli Suite) in conjunction with the 21st Annual International Parallel & Distributed Processing Symposium (IPDPS 2007), March 26-30, 2007, Long Beach, California USA

Keynote Address

Horst D. Simon and John Shalf
"Parallelism and Power in the Age of Petascale Computing"


High-performance computing is and has always been performance oriented. However, a consequence of the push towards maximum performance is increased energy consumption, especially at 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 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 power-aware, high-performance computing. HPPAC will present research that reduces (1) power, (2) energy consumption, or (3) heat generation, with little or no performance penalty. This workshop differs from other power-aware workshops in that it is specifically interested in saving energy in large scale, scientific applications, rather than in small mobile devices.
