SC is the International Conference for
High Performance Computing, Networking,
Storage and Analysis

SCHEDULE: NOV 12-18, 2011

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.

Setting Trends for Energy Efficiency

SESSION: Setting Trends for Energy Efficiency

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 12:15PM - 1:15PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Erich Strohmaier, Wu Feng, Nicolas Dube


This BoF reviews an effort to drive a commonly adopted set of methodologies, workloads and metrics for measuring energy efficiency of supercomputer architectures. This is a collaborative effort between the Green500, the Top500, The Green Grid and the Energy Efficient HPC Working Group. It is intended for those involved in the supercomputer system architecture design and procurement decision-making process including users, data center and facilities designers/managers. This community effort seeks to characterize the energy efficiency of supercomputer architectures rather than the operational efficiency of supercomputers or data-centers. A pragmatic decision was taken to select readily available, broadly adopted and well defined workloads that exercise the HPC system or subsystem to the fullest capability possible. An immediate focus of this community is to improve the methodology for measuring the energy and/or power consumed while running workloads, such as HPL. Please attend this BoF, learn more and provide your feedback.
