You are invited to join the Energy Efficient High Performance Computing Working Group. This Group, conceived at the Super Computer 2008 conference in Austin, is in the formative stage. The survey below, comprises 9 question, and should only take a few minutes to complete. It will help us to organize our group and activities. Ideally, super computer sites will be represented both on the IT/CS and facilities side in the Working Group. Therefore, feel free to pass on the Survey's URL to others that may be interested in joining. For questions, contact Dale Sartor, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, (510) 486-5988,
