Natalie Bates has led the Energy Efficient High Performance Computing Working Group (EE HPC WG) from it inception as an idea spawned during a panel discussion at an SC Conference. The purpose of the WG is to drive implementation of energy efficient design in HPC. Today, there are over 700 members from 25+ countries. Natalie has been the technical and executive leader for this ‘open source’ working group that disseminates best practices, shares information (peer to peer exchange) and takes collective action. The EE HPC WG has collaborated and negotiated with industry standards committees and major HPC organizations as well as influenced HPC system development. Prior to leading the EE HPC WG, Natalie's career spanned twenty years with Intel Corporation where she was a senior manager of highly complex programs taking new products to market, delivering multi-component and multi-partner platforms, and negotiating strategic technical industry initiatives.
