Event: OPTIM'2019 - Int. Workshop on Optimization of Energy Efficient HPC & Distributed Systems

Date/Time: July 15 – July 19, 2019

Location: Dublin, Ireland

Submission Deadline: March 11th, 2019



Scope And Objectives


Energy efficiency optimization has gradually become one fundamental constraint and requisite in the design of High Performance Computing

(HPC) and Distributed Systems, comprehending several prominent research domains embracing the processor architectures (homogeneous/heterogeneous many-core GPPs), the processing accelerators and co-processors (e.g., APUs, GPUs, FPGAs, etc.), the distributed infrastructures (clusters, grids, data centers, etc.), the distributed platforms (application models, framework runtimes and virtual machines), and the underlying network and communication subsystem. Moreover, even in the embedded domain, saving energy in battery-supplied devices is established as a fundamental issue in mobile, hand-held and wireless applications and in most pervasive systems.


Accordingly, due to the often imposed thermal, power and energy constraints, an effective minimization and optimization of the energy

consumption surpasses the obvious economic impact of the energy cost, since it also directly affects other aspects of the overall infrastructure with a significant influence on its viability, including the power supply and its distribution, cooling mechanisms (cost and space overhead) and management techniques, etc.


These new challenges require innovative and effective solutions to attain an effective optimization and/or minimization of the power

consumption in HPC and distributed systems, including energy-efficient architectures, scheduling and mapping algorithms, load-balancing and

scalability studies, and communication protocols.


The goal of this workshop is to bring together active researchers who are interested in prevailing issues and prominent challenges related to

optimizing computing systems power consumption, energy efficient systems, power-aware distributed systems, and green computing.


The OPTIM workshop topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:


  • Computer architecture trends for energy efficiency: Heterogeneous parallel processing architectures; ISA diversity and morphable structures; run-time reconfiguration/adaptation and dynamic scalability; CPU accelerator co-design (GPUs, APUs, FPGAs, etc.); approximate computing techniques and architectures.


  • Energy/power management and control: Run-time power/energy monitoring and sensing; heat/power/energy models; Dynamic Voltage and Frequency Scaling (DVFS) and power/clock gating strategies; performance vs. power/energy scaling and management.


  • Energy-aware large scale distributed systems: energy-efficient grids, clouds and data centers; exascale computing systems; energy-aware virtualization techniques for energy efficiency; energy-aware frameworks; virtual machines and network infrastructure management.


  • Energy-aware communication: energy-efficient models, protocols and and network infrastructure management. routing algorithms applied in the physical (PHY), data-link (MAC), network (IP), transport (TCP/UDP) and middleware layers above; energy-efficient cross-layer protocols; energy trade offs between communication and computation; energy-efficient network services and operations.


  • Tools and algorithms: Programing languages, compilers and models for energy-aware computing; profiling and simulation tools for heat/power/energy estimation; power- and thermal-aware scheduling, mapping and task/thread migration policies for energy efficiency; energy-aware resource management; operating system support and energy management tools.


  • Green Computing: models, methodologies and paradigms; sustainable computing; management and balance between performance, reliability and energy consumption; standardization and benchmarking for energy-aware systems; integration with smart grids. Both theoretical papers and papers describing systems implementations and real-world practical experiences will be welcome.

Scope And Objectives


The facility demands for supercomputing centers (SCs) are characterized by electrical power demands for computing systems that scale to tens of megawatts (MW) and millisecond voltage fluctuations approaching 10MW for the largest systems. The demand for primary electrical distribution capabilities to current large-scale facilities can exceed 60MW, comprising multiple, redundant, and diverse medium-voltage feeders.   Despite significant pressure on both Moore’s Law and Dennard scaling, the appetite for ever-larger systems and the subsequent demand for both agile power and effective cooling for these systems continues to grow. Computing trends, in terms of highly optimized hardware platforms that may leverage accelerators or other non-traditional components, scalable and high performing applications, and the requirements to manage exponentially larger data sets are driving facility demands not envisioned just a few years ago.


SC facilities must consider multiple elements, including the cost to extend or fit existing primary distribution capabilities; the cost and consequence of both trapped and stranded capacity, ever-increasing heat densities for new systems that may render existing cooling mechanisms obsolete or ineffective, increased mandatory use of liquid cooling for portions of the heat load, and wet weights that exceed the carrying capacities of existing raised floor systems.


Additionally, the operational costs of these facilities must be balanced versus the demand from the systems owners and users for high availability, high utilization, and low-impact facility maintenance and service demands. To achieve this balance, many SCs continue to innovate their operational design practices and technologies. Solutions seek improved management of both the electrical and mechanical systems, and minimizing long-term facility costs through best practices associated with their design.


Some SCs are early adopters and innovators in operational practices and technologies that are geared towards improving energy and power management capabilities.  This workshop will explore these operational and technological innovations that span HPC computational systems as well as buildings and building infrastructure.


The purpose of this workshop is to allow for publication of practices, policies, procedures, and technologies in formal peer-reviewed papers so the broader community can benefit from these experiences.  The nature of these papers is generally descriptive with hard experiential data generally gathered through surveys, case studies and research for practice.


Workshop Topics of Interest Include (but are not limited to)


Reports on experience gained with grid integration

  •  Impact of large HPC power loads and rapid voltage swings on electrical distribution systems

Location: Nice, France



From data center air-coolers to on-chip implementations, energy conservation is predominant and innovative research is ongoing to address this huge energy drain. The need to limit or recover energy consumed has an associated cost.


New strategies are being developed with a goal to limit the energy consumption of data centers.  However, nothing comes for free. Compared

to an ideal solution, practical Green initiatives have associated costs to overcome and researchers & industry have to between the cost and

benefits. This track examines the concepts associated with current green energy initiatives and the cost benefit analysis.


The main objective of this track is to explore industrial practices and research initiatives, that address the challenges in implementing green

initiatives in the field of computing, storage, network and cooling technologies in data centers, such as (i) air cooling initiatives, (ii) managing compute servers, (iii) energy oriented storage solutions, (iv) networking techniques and (v) related economic and reliability studies (iv) industry studies related to Green technologies.


Topics include, but not limited to:

  • Green initiatives in data center Energy management & architectures
  • Compute, Storage & Networking Applications and test results
  • Quality of Service issues in Green computing
  • New business and economic models
  • Cross-layer cost benefit optimization
