The Fourth International Conference on Advanced Communications and Computation (INFOCOMP 2014)

July 20 - 24, 2014 - Paris, France.

 

The diversity of semantics of data, context gathering and processing led to complex mechanisms for applications requiring special communication and computation support in terms of volume of data, processing speed, context variety, etc. The new computation paradigms and communications technologies are now driven by the needs for fast processing and requirements from data-intensive applications and domain-oriented applications (medicine, geoinformatics, climatology, remote learning, education, large scale digital libraries, social networks, etc.). Mobility, ubiquity, multicast, multi-access networks, data centers, cloud computing are now forming the spectrum of de factor approaches in response to the diversity of user demands and applications. In parallel, measurements control and management (self-management) of such environments evolved to deal with new complex situations.

INFOCOMP 2014 continues a series of events dedicated to advanced communications and computing aspects, covering academic and industrial achievements and visions.

First International Workshop on Energy Efficient Supercomputing (E2SC) in Denver, Colorado, USA

To be held in conjunction with SC13: The International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis in Denver, Colorado, USA on 17th November 2013.

 

With Exascale systems on the horizon, we have ushered in an era with power and energy consumption as the primary concerns for scalable computing. To achieve viable high performance computing, revolutionary methods are required with a stronger integration among hardware features, system software and applications. Equally important are the capabilities for fine-grained spatial and temporal measurement and control to facilitate energy efficient computing across all layers.

 

Current approaches for energy efficient computing rely heavily on power efficient hardware in isolation. However, it is pivotal for hardware to expose mechanisms for energy efficiency to optimize power and energy consumption for various workloads. At the same time, high fidelity measurement techniques, typically ignored in data-center level measurement, are of high importance for scalable and energy efficient inter-play in different layers of application, system software and hardware.

 

This workshop seeks to address the important energy efficiency aspects in the HPC community that have not been previously addressed by aspects covered in the data center or cloud computing communities. Emphasis is given to the applications view related to significant energy efficiency improvements and to the required hardware/software stack that must include necessary power and performance measurement and analysis harnesses.

 

Current tools are often limited by hardware capabilities and their lack of information about the characteristics of a given workload/application. In the same manner, hardware techniques, like dynamic voltage frequency scaling, are often limited by their granularity (very coarse power management) or by their scope (a very limited system view). More rapid realization of energy savings will require significant increases in measurement resolution and optimization techniques. Moreover, the interplay between performance, power and reliability add another layer of complexity to this already difficult group of challenges.

 

Date: 17th November 2013

Fourth International Conference on Energy-Aware High Performance Computing (EnA-HPC 2013) in Dresden, Germany

Power provisioning and energy consumption have become the major challenges in the field of high performance computing. Energy costs over the lifetime of an HPC installation are in the range of the acquisition costs. The greening of HPC  is therefore an important research field that attracts many scientists.

 

Up to now we see different approaches on different abstraction levels in an HPC environment. For example, vendors work on power-efficient processor architectures and software developers on mechanisms of how to use them. However, there is no integrated approach yet that would show ways of how to operate an HPC environment in an energy-efficient way.

 

The EnA-HPC conference aims at bringing together researchers, developers, vendors and users to discuss the energy consumption challenge that HPC is facing. Some of the key issues are applications, modelling, simulation, measurement, analysis and optimization, facility issues and business concepts. EnA-HPC will provide a forum to present novel solutions that tackle these issues.

Date: 2 -3 September 2013

Fourth International Conference on Energy-Aware High-Performance Computing, Dresden, Germany

The fourth International Conference on Energy-Aware High-Performance Computing, held in Dresden from Sep. 2nd to Sep. 3rd 2013, has been organized by the Zentrum für Informationsdienste und Hochleistungsrechnen (ZIH) of the TU Dresden in close cooperation with the DKRZ and the University of Hamburg at the Department of Informatics of the Technische Universität Dresden.

 

While hardware technology advances towards more energy-efficient devices, solving the power challenge for Exascale needs holistic solutions, which must include power-efficient system software. In response to this, the EnA-HPC conference devotes at bringing together researchers, developers, vendors and users to discuss the energy consumption challenge that HPC is facing.

 

In this last edition of the conference, the 52 participants discussed the analysis and optimization of energy efficiency in hardware and software, modeling the power consumption of applications as well as ecological and economic aspects of the operation of data centers.
