Energy Efficient High Performance Computing

Interest in energy efficient computing emerged from the explosive growth of energy limited mobile computing devices such as laptops and smartphones. In the past high performance computing was focused on optimizing the performance of scientific applications on powerful supercomputers . These interests have converged as high performance systems have become energy bound and energy limited mobile are being required to handle more computationally intensive tasks 

Our current research focuses what characteristics of energy limited devices improve efficiency and what characteristics of high performance systems improve compute times that do not substantially increase power consumption.
