To address vital energy challenges in computing technologies coming from the disruptive transitions from petascale to exascale energy efficiency of computations has to be addressed. Future computing systems will be constrained by power/energy and will feature massive parallelism, heterogeneity, and heavy exploitation of data locality. We need comprehensive execution models for energy-efficient computing paradigm that allow us to understand the inherent bounds that govern the interaction between performance and energy. We need to investigate and model trade-offs between energy consumption and performance of concurrent data structures and algorithms.

The workshop is going to focus on the technical issues above. Approaches to energy efficient computing paradigms for emerging many-core architectures will be addressed. Workshop topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Energy-aware execution models
  • Energy efficient algorithms and data structures
  • Energy efficient interprocess synchronization
  • Energy efficiency in transactional memory
  • Energy consumption and fault-tolerance
  • Energy-aware compiler optimizations and runtime support
The goal of the fEEDBACk workshop is to provide a forum where the distributed computing and energy computing communities can meet and learn from their respective fields.

So, we have a great pleasure to invite you to participate in the fEEDBACk Workshop on Energy Efficient Distributed and Parallel Computing, held in conjunction with PODC 2015, Donostia-San Sebastián, Spain, July 20th, 2015.

Call for Papers

You are invited to submit a paper containing unpublished original work for the fEEDBACk Workshop. We solicit submissions summarizing and describing previous work and/or recent results and/or position papers. We welcome results coming from research projects. The selection is going to be based on the following reviewing criteria: originality/novelty, technical soundness, relevance to the workshop topics, and quality of presentation. Final papers will be available to participants electronically during the workshop. However, to facilitate resubmission to more formal venues, no archival proceedings will be published. Authors will have the option to upload the final version of their papers on the workshop website. If there is sufficient interest from the speakers, we will consider the possibility of a special issue.
