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:

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
Use cases, lessons learned and best practices from large-scale, production deployment of:
Experiences from extending the L2/L3 power measurement methodology to other benchmarks (beyond HPL)
Use cases, lessons learned and best practices from:
Abstracts and papers to be submitted via Easy Chair - https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=eehpcsop2019
Accepted papers must be presented at the workshop.
Long papers should not exceed **8** pages and short papers should not exceed **4** pages in the ACM format
For reproducibility, authors are expected to provide an appendix describing the methods used to gather, test and archive the data described in the paper. This appendix is not included in the page limit, but cannot exceed **2** pages.
Submissions will be judged on correctness, novel or innovative approaches to a problem, technical and/or operational strength, written quality, and interest and relevance to the workshop scope. The workshop organizers will provide written reviews for all timely submissions. Editorial review and recommendations may be provided as well.
Accepted papers will be published by ACM as part of the ICPP2019 Proceedings in a companion volume for workshops.

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:
