The Second Workshop on HPC Power Management: Knowledge Discovery

Thursday, August 25, 2016 9:00am – 5:30pm
The Hotel at Arundel Preserve
Hanover, MD 21076

This workshop will address the issues and potential solutions for power capacity planning and management in an HPC facility. Two main issues are managing stranded and trapped capacity. Stranded and trapped capacity issues often manifest when facility managers are given highly inaccurate power budget estimations. Power and other physical resources are allocated based on these estimations, which results in overprovisioning and underutilization of these resources. Currently many HPC users are not concerned about power usage effectiveness, but that is certain to change in the near future as the HPC community gears up to meet the exascale challenge. Power consumption and management and related infrastructure requirements are considered to be some of the main hurdles to overcome in order to achieve sustained exascale operations on future computing platforms and key applications.

This workshop will be a multi-year series to address different aspects of power capacity management and will include topics such as energy efficient hardware design, green programming models, energy-aware job scheduling, monitoring, modeling, evaluation etc. For 2016, the theme of this workshop will be "knowledge discovery."

Today there is a good amount of monitoring data available to HPC centers. However, there is a lack of best practices on the management and analysis of this data. The 2016 workshop will provide a forum for the HPC community to exchange field experiences and discuss the guidelines for HPC power management. It will include a keynote talk, nine invited talks, and a vendor panel.

There is no registration fee for the workshop. However, due to limited space, registration is required.
