Efficient Modelling of Parallel Computer Systems Workshop

A Workshop held in conjunction with HiPEAC 2014, 21st January 2014, Vienna (Austria)


The EU FP7 project Adept addresses the challenge of energy‐efficient use of parallel technologies. Adept builds on the expertise of software developers from high‐performance computing (HPC) to exploit parallelism for performance, and on the expertise of embedded systems engineers in managing energy usage. The aim of Adept is to develop tools and methodologies that will guide software developers and help them to model and predict performance and power consumption of parallel software and hardware.

In line with the project goals this workshop will bring together experts from the HPC and embedded domains to discuss the current state‐of‐the‐art and research in the area of performance and power modelling and monitoring of parallel computer systems. Specific emphasis will also be given to the cross‐fertilisation of expertise between the two domains.
