SC19 Energy Efficient HPC Working Group (EE HPC WG)

Tenth Annual Workshop for the Energy Efficient HPC Working Group (EE HPC WG)

Monday, November 18th 9:00AM-5:30PM SC19 Denver, Colorado USA



The workshop and include sessions on large power swings, novel cooling technologies, exascale facility challenges and operational data analytics.  Jeff Broughton will be the key note speaker and will talk about his Perspective from the Hill:  Supercomputing and Energy Efficiency.


 Jeff Broughton is the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center's (NERSC) Deputy for Operations at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL).  He has responsibility for on-going operations at NERSC, including a facility upgrade to support the upcoming NERSC-9 system, Perlmutter.  Jeff has 30 years of HPC and management experience, including positions at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Amdahl, Sun Microsystems Laboratories, and the startups, Key Research and PathScale. He has tackled projects in multiple disciplines as both an engineer and manager, including networking, computer-aided design, processor design, compilers, and operating systems.  Jeff holds multiple patents. His inventions include optimistic concurrency protocols, distributed cache coherence protocols, domain partitioning mechanisms, and software methods for cycle-based logic simulation.  He was the NERSC representative in the construction of the Computational Research and Theory Facility, now known as Shyh Wang Hall at LBNL.
