SC08 Technology Thrust to focus on energy

Energy has made headlines over the past year, from rising costs to the search for new sources to reducing consumption. At the upcoming SC08 conference, one of two Technology Thrust Areas developed to focus attention on and highlight research in key computational fields will focus on various aspects of energy as it relates to high performance computing. SC08, the international conference on high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis, will be held Nov. 15–21 in Austin.
The Energy Thrust will focus both on the use of HPC in renewable energy and energy efficiency research as well as the challenge of best practices and technology trends aimed at energy efficient data centers.
