 8:00 - 8:30   Light continental breakfast

 8:45 - 8:55   Welcome from the Workshop Organizers

 8:55 - 10:00   Keynote address - Partha Ranganathan, Hewlett Packard

Topic: Rethinking the systems stack: the next frontier for better efficiency and management We are entering an exciting era for computer systems design. In addition to continued advances in performance, next-generation designs are also addressing important challenges around power, manageability, reliability, and scalability. Furthermore, a confluence of new technologies such as photonics, non-volatile storage, and 3D stacking, and new workloads around virtualization, cloud computing, and unstructured data, offer the opportunity to rethink traditional solutions. In this talk, we will talk about the challenges in rethinking future IT infrastructures (servers and networks, and their management) with particular focus on the opportunities around co-designed solutions across hardware and software at the ensemble level.

Partha Ranganathan is currently a distinguished technologist at Hewlett Packard Labs. His research interests are in systems architecture and management, power management and energy-efficiency, and systems modeling and evaluation. He is currently the principal investigator for the exascale datacenter project at HP Labs that seeks to design next-generation servers and datacenters and their management. He was a primary developer of the publicly distributed Rice Simulator for ILP Multiprocessors (RSIM). Partha received his B.Tech degree from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras and his M.S. and Ph.D. from Rice University, Houston. Partha's work has been featured in various venues including the Wall Street Journal, Business Week, San Francisco Chronicle, Times of India, slashdot, youtube, and Tom's hardware guide. Partha has been named one of the world's top young innovators by MIT Technology Review, and is a recipient of Rice University's Outstanding Young Engineering Alumni award.
