The Second Workshop on HPC Power Management: Knowledge Discovery

Thursday, August 25, 2016 9am - 5:30pm 
Historic Inns of Annapolis, Annapolis, Maryland (tentative) 

*Due to limited space, registration is required. For details, please check the workshop website.


This workshop will address the issues and potential solutions for power capacity planning and management in an HPC facility. Two main issues are managing stranded and trapped capacity. Stranded and trapped capacity issues often manifest when facility managers are given highly inaccurate power budget estimations. Power and other physical resources are allocated based on these estimations, which results in overprovisioning and underutilization of these resources. Currently many HPC users are not concerned about power usage effectiveness, but that is certain to change in the near future as the HPC community gears up to meet the exa-scale challenge. Power consumption and management and related infrastructure requirements are considered to be some of the main hurdles to overcome in order to achieve sustained exa-scale operations on future computing platforms and key applications.

This workshop will be a multi-year series to address different aspects of power capacity management and will include topics such as energy efficient hardware design, green programming models, energy-aware job scheduling, monitoring, modeling, evaluation etc.

For 2016, the theme will be "knowledge discovery" for all stake holders: procurement managers, facilities and infrastructure personnel, IT personnel, and end users. Today there is a good amount of monitoring data available to HPC centers. However, there is a lack of best practices on the management and analysis of this data. This workshop will provide a forum for the HPC community to exchange field experiences and discuss the guidelines for HPC power management. It will include a keynote talk, nine invited talks, and a panel discussion.
