The 14th Workshop on High-Performance, Power-Aware Computing (HPPAC'18)
To be held Monday, May 21st, 2018
in conjunction with
IPDPS 2018

Power and energy are now recognized as first-order constraints in high-performance computing.  Optimizing performance under power and energy bounds requires coordination across not only the software stack (compilers, operating and runtime systems, job schedulers) but also coordination with cooling systems and outwards to electrical suppliers.  As we continue to move towards exascale and extreme scale computing, understanding how power translates to performance becomes an increasingly critical problem.

We are very excited to continue this workshop in conjunction with IPDPS as a leading venue for research in power aware computing in HPC.  


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

  • Performance optimization across node, job, cluster and site power bounds.
  • Power/performance tradeoffs across accelerators, processors and DRAM.
  • Cooling/performance tradeoffs.
  • Translating budgetary bounds into power and energy bounds.
  • Efficient system design, from computer center to silicon
  • Effects of compiler optimizations on code power and energy efficiency
  • Power- and energy-aware job schedulers, runtime systems and operating systems.
  • Models of power and performance, from processors to computer centers.
  • Evaluations of hardware power and energy controls


Papers should not exceed ten single-spaced pages for long papers (including figures, tables and references) or four single-spaced pages for short papers (not including the references) using 12-point font on 8.5x11- inch pages. Submissions will be judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, significance, presentation quality, and relevance.

Submitted papers should not have appeared in or be under consideration for another venue. A full peer-review process will be followed with each paper being reviewed by at least three members of the program committee.

Submissions should follow the IEEE Conference Proceedings templates found at . Camera-ready copy will need to conform to IPDPS guidelines; these will be announced during author notification.
