Energy Efficient Management of Parallel Systems,

Platforms, and Computations

This special session aims at gathering researchers working in the broad areas of energy-efficient computing and communication systems. This session seeks submissions addressing the different aspects of system management for energy efficient parallel applications and platforms. Emphasis is given to approaches and analyses targeting real-world energy-efficient system implementations as well as novel approaches to energy-efficient design. This special session is organized in cooperation with the COST Action 1305, the Network for Sustainable Ultrascale Computing (NESUS).
