November 8, 2008 Leave a comment
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. On Thursday, Nov. 20, two plenary talks and several Masterworks presentations will discuss different aspects of energy and computing, from energy exploration to improving the energy efficiency of computing centers.
