SESSION LEADER(S):William Tschudi, Michael Patterson, Natalie Bates
ABSTRACT: This BoF will bring together HPC professionals that have volunteered to join the Energy Efficient HPC Working Group (EE HPC WG). This WG began as a BoF at SC'08 with approximately 45 members and is more than twice that size today. The group has prioritized a number of topical areas to advance such as HPC metrics, HPC best practices, etc. with an overall goal of dramatically improving overall energy performance while maintaining high computational ability. See http://eehpcwg.lbl.gov/ for more information on the WG.
The purpose of the BoF will be to communicate to members and the general community the on-going priorities, sub-groups and results of the WG as well as to solicit new members and brainstorm additional areas where a unified HPC community can make significant advancement in technologies to improve energy performance. Additional sub-groups will be formed to focus on specific topics and the meeting will provide the WG a venue to meet their counterparts and continue jointly to develop an action plan.
