Scope:

A significant step in mitigating the environmental impact of large-scale computing systems is to avoid using polluting energy sources for powering the ever growing needs of the field. While some approaches aim to increase the energy efficiency of existing datacenters, another path is to use as much renewable energy as possible as the source. Since datacenters are the main contributors to the energy usage of IT, and because their location is fixed and they are built for a long period, associating renewable energy production and storage with computing facilities is a widely investigated field. This special issue aims to collect  original research contributions from academia and industry working in all fields related to datacenters operated (mainly) by renewable energy. It is open to related topics in the fields of IT, electrical engineering, control systems, thermal engineering, etc. A  particular attention will be paid to studies explicitly mixing these different scientific fields, but contributions addressing only one of these are also welcomed.

 

This special issue seeks original and unpublished research articles reporting on all aspects including theoretical studies, practical applications and experimental prototypes pertaining to renewable energy-powered datacenters.

 

  • Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  •  Efficient IT and energy resource scheduling,
  •  Uncertainty management,
  • Sizing of IT and energy infrastructure,
  •  Electrical distribution architecture and reliability,
  •  Long/short term energy storage in datacenters,
  •  Hydrogen uses in datacenters,
  •  Cooling technologies and heat management, • Geographically distributed datacenters, • Interactions with the electric power grid.

 

The special issue will consider all contributions related to the theme, and is a continuation of the workshop on the same topic held in Besançon, France, in the context of the DATAZERO ( http://datazero.org ) project: http://events.femto-st.fr/workshop-datacenters-2019/en

Special Issue on "Performance, Power and Energy-Efficiency Optimization in Computer Architectures"

Energies, MDPI (ISSN 1996-1073) - Open Access Journal

Ranked Q1 in Scopus/Scimago - Impact Factor: 2.707 (2018)

Website: https://www.mdpi.com/journal/energies/special_issues/Energy_Computer_Architectures

 

SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES:

 

To satisfy the growing demands for higher application performance and reduced power and energy consumption, performance and energy efficiency optimization has become a fundamental constraint and requisite, embracing the processor architectures (homogeneous/heterogeneous

many-core GPPs), the accelerators and co-processors (e.g., APUs, GPUs, etc.), and even the embedded domain (e.g., SoCs, FPGAs, ASICs, etc.), where the development of energy-saving methodologies is a fundamental issue  not only  for mobile, hand-held and wireless applications but also to reach exascale computing.

 

The need to satisfy the required performance levels, as well as the new thermal, power and energy constraints, require the definition of innovative solutions to attain an effective optimization of the offered throughput and/or minimization of the power/energy consumption. Among

many other research directions, this challenge naturally involves the design of high performance and energy-efficient architectures and communication infrastructures, as well as the development of novel algorithms and tools comprising the scheduling, mapping, load-balancing, and scalability, together with innovative compilation techniques.

 

The goal of this Special Issue is to collect novel contributions covering prevailing issues and prominent challenges related to optimizing the performance, power, and energy efficiency in computing devices and systems.

 

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

 

  • Computer architecture trends for performance and energy efficiency:
  •  ISA diversity and morphable structures;
  •  Run-time reconfiguration/adaptation and dynamic scalability;
  • CPU accelerator co-design (GPUs, APUs, FPGAs, etc.);
  • Heterogeneous and parallel processing architectures;
  • Approximate computing techniques and architectures;
    • Neuromorphic architectures.
  • Energy/power management and control:
  •  Run-time power/energy monitoring and sensing;
  • Performance, power, energy and heat/temperature modeling;
  • Dynamic Voltage and Frequency Scaling (DVFS);
  • Power/clock gating strategies;
  • Performance vs. power/energy scaling and management.
    • Tools and algorithms:
  • Programming languages, compilers and models for energy-aware computing;
  • Profiling and simulation tools for heat/power/energy estimation;
  • Scheduling, mapping and task/thread migration policies for performance and power/energy optimization;
  • Performance- and energy-aware resource management;
  • Operating system support and energy management tools.

Topic: IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Computing - Special Issue on Energy-Efficient Edge Computing

 

The future increase in the amount of data and workloads generated by Internet of Things (IoT) devices and connected sensors will lead to the necessity to move computational nodes from the cloud data centers closer to the data source, i.e., at the edge of the cloud, for reduced latency. An edge system is composed of any computing and networking resources along the path between data sources and cloud data centers. Depending on the specific computing needs, edge computing devices can use either a wireless or a wired connection to exchange messages with the data sources. IoT devices and sensors can then exploit the hierarchical structure of the edge and cloud system to analyze the collected data and provide useful information to users in a timely manner. For example, wearable sensors could use the computing resources of the user’s smartphone, laptop, or even smart vehicle to analyze the collected data. Because a large majority of edge devices are battery operated and have limited connectivity, the energy efficiency of computation becomes critical. To this end, it is important to minimize the energy consumption of all the components of an edge system, including sensors, IoT devices, edge nodes, and network devices while guaranteeing the desired performance. For this special issue we solicit original experimental, conceptual, and theoretical contributions on the following topics related to energy-efficient edge computing:

 

  • Energy-aware application placement and offloading
  • Energy-aware resource management
  • Energy-aware data management
  • Energy-aware edge2cloud coordination
  • Energy-aware sensing for edge computing systems
  • Energy-efficient hardware architectures for edge computing and devices
  • Energy-efficient edge computing for AI applications
  • Energy-efficient edge computing applications
  • Energy-efficient vehicular edge computing
  • Energy-efficient edge computing for autonomous robots
  • Energy-efficient networks for edge computing
  • Edge computing powered by distributed renewable energy resources

Special Issue Information

 

Dear Colleagues,

 

In the current digital era, computing is prevalent, and the level of penetration of computing in society, industry, economy, science, and engineering will only increase. Therefore, the energy involved in computing—which was not considered a big issue in the past—is becoming a grand technological challenge. The proportion of total energy consumption represented by ICT is rapidly increasing. By 2030, it is predicted to consume around 50% of all the generated electricity, according to some prognoses [1]. This situation is not sustainable, and extraordinary efforts are needed to increase energy efficiency in ICT.

 

Cloud computing systems have demonstrated exponential growth over the last decade and quickly become the dominant computing infrastructure. By the end of 2020, two-thirds of enterprise infrastructure will be cloud-based; additionally, 82% of the workload will reside in the cloud (https://techjury.net/stats-about/cloud-computing/). Therefore, any improvements in the energy efficiency of cloud systems will also improve the global energy efficiency of computing.

 

This Special Issue invites submissions addressing all aspects of energy efficiency in cloud computing systems at all levels. Manuscripts reporting accurate application-level power and energy predictive models, and energy measurement methods and tools are particularly welcome. Methods on the optimization of multiple objectives are also welcome but must include energy consumption as one of the primary objectives.

Twitter: @heart_symp

 

The International Symposium on Highly Efficient Accelerators and Reconfigurable Technologies (HEART) is a forum to present and discuss new research on  computing systems utilizing acceleration technology. The main theme of HEART is achieving high efficiency with accelerators, which is of utmost importance across a wide spectrum of computing systems. In the high performance computing and data center domains, high efficiency mostly relates to performance, while in the mobile and IoT space research communities think about accelerators more from a power/energy perspective. HEART 2020 will focus on high  efficiency as a cross-cutting issue and asks for contributions in the following areas:

 

  • Architectures for Efficient Acceleration
  • Novel systems/platforms based on FPGA, GPU, and other devices
  • Heterogeneous processor architectures and systems for high-performance and/or low-power
  • Domain-specific architectures

 

  • Design Methods and Tools for Efficient Acceleration
  • Programming paradigms, languages, and frameworks
  • High-level synthesis and compilers
  • Runtime methodologies for heterogeneous systems
  • Performance evaluation and analysis

 

  • Applications and Systems
  • Application examples that benefit from efficient acceleration to a great extent
  • Complete systems demonstrating increased energy efficiency and/or performance
  • Comparisons between accelerator technologies

 

In order to set a basis for discussions on the cross-cutting nature of acceleration technology, HEART 2020 will feature two special sessions on highly efficient accelerators in the domains of

  1. High-performance Computing / Data Center / Cloud
  2. Mobile Systems / Edge Computing / Internet of Things

 

Prospective authors are invited to submit original contributions as 6-page papers to be considered as regular papers or 4-page papers to be considered as poster papers. Since a double-blind review process will be used, authors should not identify themselves, so author names, affiliations, e-mail addresses and self-references should be blanked out. Papers that appeared previously as preprints on arXiv or similar are welcome and do not violate the double-blind review policy. The version submitted to HEART 2020 should however by anonymized. All contributions must be submitted electronically in PDF format (two columns, US letter size, single-spacing, 10 points for main body text). Accepted papers will be published in the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series (ICPS) and will appear in the ACM digital library. Each accepted paper MUST have at least one author with a regular registration for the manuscript to be included and published in the proceedings. Authors are also expected to attend and present their paper(s) at the symposium.

 

PhD Forum

 

PhD students working in areas relevant to HEART 2020 are solicited to submit an extended abstract of up to 2 pages comprising a summary of their research findings, work in progress and/or planned research. The PhD Forum is intended as a platform for PhD students to interact with peers as well as experienced researchers. The forum will be organized as a poster session and will include a 5 minutes oral introduction by each student. The PhD student should be the first author, thesis advisors may be coauthors. Submission will be reviewed to ensure quality and relevance. Authors of accepted submissions are expected to attend HEART 2020 and present their poster. The accepted extended abstracts will also appear in the conference proceedings.
