IEEEMicro

Title:IEEE Micro Special Issue on Energy-Aware Computing
Submission Deadline:2012-03-09
Webpage:http://sites.google.com/site/ieeemicro/call-for-papers-ieee-micro-issue-5-of-2012--energy-aware-computing
Dates:
Location:
Contact Email:twenisch@umich.edu
Synopsis:
The march of Moore's Law continues to provide ever more transistors, but unfortunately Dennard scaling--the concomitant reduction of CMOS threshold and supply voltages--has essentially ended. Hence, power density and peak power demands are soaring with each new process generation on a trajectory that far outstrips improvements in our ability to dissipate heat. Because of these trends, energy efficiency (as opposed to area or switching speeds) is the limiting factor in computing performance in platforms from smartphones to warehouse-scale computers. This special issue seeks original papers on topics related to energy and power targeting computing platforms at any scale, from embedded systems to data centers.
