Abstract:   Power provisioning and energy consumption became major challenges in the field of high performance computing. Energy costs over the lifetime of an HPC installation are in the range of the acquisition costs. The greening of HPC therefore is an important research field that attracts many scientists. Up to now we see different approaches on different abstraction levels in an HPC environment. For example, vendors work on power efficient processor architectures and software developers on mechanisms of how to use them. However, there is no integrated approach yet that would show ways of how to operate an HPC environment in an energy efficient way. The EnA-HPC workshop brings together researchers, developers, vendors, and users to discuss the energy consumption challenge that HPC is facing. Some of the key issues are applications, modeling, measurement, analysis and optimization, facility issues and business concepts. EnA-HPC provides a forum to present novel solutions that tackle these issues. The workshop integrates the EnA-HPC international conference series and the ISC 2015 workshop on “Power and Energy-Aware High Performance Computing on Emerging Technology.” This year workshop will be organized together with the colleagues from the READEX-Project. READEX deals with runtime exploitation of application dynamism for energy-efficient Exascale computing.  

Targeted Audience 
Specialists in the field of energy efficiency working on software solutions in programs and middle ware components like the scheduler but also in the OS field. Specialists from existing and future compute centers who look into solutions to reduce power consumption.
