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.
Energy Efficiency at Extreme Scales: Tools and Challenges
SESSION: Energy Efficiency at Extreme Scales: Tools and Challenges
EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather
TIME: 5:30PM - 7:00PM
SESSION LEADER(S):Darren J. Kerbyson, Kevin J. Barker, Abhinav Vishnu
ABSTRACT: Power consumption will become a major concern for future generation supercomputers. Current systems consume more than a Megawatt per Petaflop. Exascale levels of computation, a 100x improvement in performance from today, will be significantly constrained if power requirements were to similarly scale. The optimization of power and energy at all levels, from application to system software and to hardware, is required.
This BOF will discuss state-of-the-art tools and techniques for observing and optimizing power consumption. These are often limited by hardware capabilities and in their ability to associate measurements with software. Additionally, control mechanisms such as Dynamic-Voltage-Frequency-Scaling are often limited.
The challenges ahead are many-fold. Increasing parallelism, memory systems, interconnection networks, storage and uncertainties in programming models all add to the complexities. More rapid realization of energy savings will require significant increases in measurement resolution and optimization techniques. The interplay between performance, power, and reliability also leads to complex trade-offs.
