The 4th workshop on UnConventional High Performance Computing 2011 (UCHPC 2011), August 29th, 2011, Bordeaux, France, will be held in conjunction with Euro-Par 2011. This workshop is organized by Anders Hast, Josef Weidendorfer and Jan-Philipp Weiss.
As the word “UnConventional” in the title suggests, the workshop focuses on hardware or platforms used for HPC, which were not intended for HPC in the first place. Reasons could be raw computing power, good performance per watt, or low cost in general. Thus, UCHPC tries to capture solutions for HPC which are unconventional today but perhaps conventional tomorrow. For example, the computing power of platforms for games recently raised rapidly. This motivated the use of GPUs for computing (GPGPU), or even building computational grids from game consoles. The recent trend of integrating GPUs on processor chips seem to be very beneficial for use of both parts for HPC. Other examples for “unconventional” hardware are embedded, low-power processors, upcoming many-core architectures, FPGAs or DSPs. Thus, interesting devices for research in unconventional HPC are not only standard server or desktop systems, but also relative cheap devices due to being mass market products, such as smartphones, netbooks, tablets and small NAS servers. For example, smartphones seem to become more performance hungry every day. Only imagination sets the limit for use.
