Special Session on

System Management for Energy Efficient Parallel Applications and Platforms

This special session aims at gathering researchers working in the broad areas of energy-efficient computing and communication systems. This session seeks submissions addressing the different aspects of system management for energy efficient parallel applications and platforms. Emphasis is given to approaches and analyses targeting real-world energy-efficient system implementations as well as novel approaches to energy-efficient design. Authors are invited to submit high quality papers representing original work from both the academia and industry in (but not limited to) the following topics:

  • Performance and power dissipation issues
  • Energy, performance and quality of experience trade-offs
  • Energy, thermal and power models for parallel applications and platforms
  • Energy efficiency issues in HPC
  • Optimization approaches for dynamic energy management
  • Hardware and application monitoring for energy efficiency
  • Green wired and wireless networking for distributed computing
  • Design and analysis of energy/performance benchmarks
  • Evaluation of approaches across domains, e.g., from embedded systems to server domains
  • Energy harvesting methodologies, techniques, and systems

Submission guidelines

Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 8 pages in the Conference proceedings format (double-column, 10pt) to the conference main track or to Special Sessions through the EasyChair conference submission system (http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=pdp2015) with an indication of the main track or the name of the Special Session.

Double-bind review: the paper should not contain authors names and affiliations; in the reference list, references to the authors' own work entries should be substituted with the string "omitted for blind review”.


All accepted papers will be included in the same volume, published by the Conference Publishing Services (CPS). The Final Paper Preparation and Submission Instructions will be published after the notification of acceptance. Authors of accepted papers are expected to register and present their papers at the Conference. Conference proceedings will be submitted to IEEE explore, CSDL, and for indexing among others to DBLP, Scopus ScienceDirect, and ISI Web of Knowledge.
