[HTCondor-users] CFP: IEEE/ACM UCC'16 Workshop on Sustainable Data Centres and Cloud Computing (SD3C'16) (due on Jul 23)


      Call for Papers - Submission Due Date: July 23, 2016

International Workshop on Sustainable Data Centres and Cloud Computing (SD3C'16)
        Shanghai, China, December 6-9, 2016
         Âheld in conjunction with UCC 2016:

  9th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Utility and Cloud Computing

Data centre energy consumption doubled between 2000 and 2005 and grew by 50%Â
from 2005 to 2010. On average, computing consumes 60% of the total energy,Â
whereas cooling consumes 35%. Although new technologies can lead to a 40%Â
reduction, computation and cooling typically operate without coordination orÂ
optimisation. Server energy management can reduce energy consumption at theÂ
CPU, rack, and DC levels, but dynamic computation scheduling is not integratedÂ
with sensing and cooling. Data centre cooling typically operates at a constantÂ
cold air temperature to protect the hottest server racks while local fansÂ
distribute the temperature across the racks. However, these local serverÂ
controls are not integrated with room cooling systems, so it is not possible toÂ
optimise chiller, air fans and server fans as a system. The integration ofÂ
renewable energy sources has received limited interest from the DC communityÂ
due to lack of interoperability of generation, storage and heat recovery andÂ
installation and maintenance cost versus payback. The adoption of newÂ
technologies related to computing, cooling, generation, energy storage, andÂ
waste heat recovery individually requires sophisticated controls, but no singleÂ
manufacturer provides a complete system so integration between control systemsÂ
does not exist.

The objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers andÂ
technologists from academia and industry to explore the topic of sustainabilityÂ
of data centre and cloud computing, particularly from an energy perspective.Â
Topics of interest related to data centre management and cloud computingÂ
include, but are not limited to, the following:
