The next submission deadline for the Green500 List of supercomputers will be on Nov. 14, 2008.

The Green500 List debuted in November 2007 at the Supercomputing 2007 (SC07) conference to provide a foundation for tracking trends in green supercomputing. In that inaugural list, nearly half of the TOP500 List reported their actual power consumption numbers based on the guidelines set forth at the Green500 List website.

The Virginia Tech organizers of the Green500 List will have a Birds of a Feather (BoF) Session on The Green500 List at the 20th Association of Computing Machinery/Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers International Conference on High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis in Austin, Texas, on Nov. 19, 2008.

At this Birds of a Feather session, the organizers will continue to seek feedback on the evolution and future directions of the Green500. The session intends to broaden the opportunities for participation in the Green500 List for everyone involved, from submitters to critics, as the partaking and passion of the high performance computing community for energy efficiency is now becoming self-evident.
