HotPower'13: 2013 Workshop on Power-Aware Computing and Systems will be co-located with the 24th ACM Symposium on Operating Systems Principles (SOSP) on November 3rd, 2013. HotPower'13 is sponsored by USENIX, the Advanced Computing Systems Association. Click here for a single-page Call For Papers in PDF.
Power has become a central issue in the design of modern computer systems. It affects a huge variety of systems, including mobile devices, embedded networks, and large scale data centers. While there has been significant research into energy efficiency and tradeoffs to performance and other metrics, there is still significant untapped opportunity to optimize across the systems architecture stack, comprehending the entire spectrum from silicon design to storage devices to mobile endpoints and datacenter designs. With several technology disruptions on the horizon, there is the impetus to rethink how traditional boundaries between hardware and software need to evolve, and how associated designs and implementations need to change.
HotPower provides a forum in which to present the latest research and to debate directions, challenges, and novel ideas about building energy-efficient computing systems. In addition, researchers coming to these issues from fields such as computer architecture, systems and networking, measurement and modeling, language and compiler design, mobile computing, and embedded systems will have the opportunity to interact with one another, explore cross-cutting ideas, and develop new perspectives on the problem domain.
The workshop seeks submissions of early-stage research and novel ideas that will generate interesting discussion, e.g., unconventional, promising ideas with early results. Submissions about firsthand experience, lessons, challenges and problems from building and operating real-world systems are also welcome.
The program is available here.
Steering Committee Chair
Topics of interest in energy-efficient computing include but are not limited to:
Submitted papers must be no longer than 5 single-spaced 8.5" x 11" pages, including figures, tables, and references; two-column format, using 10-point type on 12-point (single-spaced) leading; and a text block 6.5" wide x 9" deep. Author names and affiliations should appear on the title page. The class file sig-alternate-hotpower13.cls meets these formatting guidelines. Papers must be in PDF format and must be submitted here.
Simultaneous submission of the same work to multiple venues, submission of previously published work, or plagiarism constitutes dishonesty or fraud. Papers meeting any of these criteria will be rejected. Authors uncertain whether their submission meets these guidelines should contact the program chairs.
Papers accompanied by nondisclosure agreement forms will not be considered. Accepted submissions will be treated as confidential prior to publication on the HotPower'13 Web site; rejected submissions will be permanently treated as confidential.
