The Sixth International Workshop on Power-Efficient GPU and Many-core Computing (PEGPUM), 2018
The recent success of advanced mobile platforms coincides with the rising challenge of ensuring a long battery life, and accompanies a larger trend away from increasing processor clock speeds in favor of increasing parallelism. That high performance computing (HPC) is also strongly motivated in this area, as witnessed by the recent Green500 List project, illustrates the timeliness and ubiquity of topics relating to low-power computing. In the last years we have seen the introduction of new computing platforms that include multicore CPUs, manycore GPUs and application-specific accelerators, some of them specially addressing low-power mobile applications. The design of applications, architectures, and supporting programming tools for low-power parallel computing systems is an open and very active research field. This workshop in conjunction with HiPEAC18 on low-power computing intends to foster dialogue and interaction among researchers from academia and industry addressing contemporary challenges in low-power parallel software and hardware design.
