Special Session on:

Energy-Aware Computing

Energy-aware computing is a research area that is concerned with finding new ways on how to save energy in computing infrastructures using novel algorithms, applications or architectures. The special session aims to bring together researchers from academia, industry and governments to advance the state of the art in energy-aware computing and to discuss the latest efforts in this area of research.
The program will include presentations of peer-reviewed papers. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Energy efficiency in Cluster, Grid and Cloud Computing
  • Optimizing tradeoffs between energy, quality of service, security and usability
  • Energy-efficient networking and data storage
  • Energy awareness in operating systems and visualization technologies
  • Simulation, emulation and modeling techniques for power and energy consumption
  • Measurement methodologies for power and energy consumption
  • Programming languages, paradigms and tools for energy-efficient software design
  • Hardware and infrastructure power management
  • Energy-efficient mobile computing
