When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side
is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own
schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal
schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook
calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be
stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your
own schedule to guide you through the week.
You can also create your personal schedule on the SC11 app (Boopsie) on your smartphone. Simply select a session you want to attend and "add" it to your plan. Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.
SESSION: Energy Efficient High Performance Computing
EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather
TIME: 12:15PM - 1:15PM
SESSION LEADER(S):Simon McIntosh-Smith
ABSTRACT: Energy efficiency has become a principal driving factor in HPC. With processors developed for smartphones and tablets now capable of delivering GFLOPS of performance and higher performance per Watt than even the densest servers, an emerging trend is the adoption of these embedded computing technologies for HPC.
Many challenges remain before the HPC community can fully exploit processors from the embedded space. In particular, much of the HPC software stack on which the community relies, such as Fortran compilers and optimised math libraries, do not exist yet for embedded processors.
This BOF will feature talks from major proponents in this area, including Krisztian Flautner (ARM), Jack Dongarra, Thomas Ludwig (Energy-Aware HPC conference) and one of the server companies starting to build products based on embedded processors.
A new, open community website for Energy Efficient HPC based on embedded processors will be officially launched at the BOF.
