3rd EASED Workshop @GI 2013

The 43rd annual conference of the society for informatics takes place in Koblenz. From the 16th to the 20th of September, 2013 workshops, seminars, scientific and practically oriented meetings as well as six partner conferences are carried out on the campus of the university in Koblenz. One of these workshops will deal with the topic "Energy Aware Software-Engineering and Development". It will be held on September 20, 2013 in Koblenz.

About the Workshop
One of the current trends in information technologies are mobile and embedded devices. Devices get smaller, more powerful, more flexible to use/program, and ubiquitous. However, one of the major drawbacks of using such devices are their limited resources, especially their power supply. Hence, their uptime strongly depends on the effectiveness of energy saving technologies. And regarding the goals of Green IT also non-battery powered devices profit from energy-efficient software.
Computer devices are composed of memory, CPU, bus systems, communication interfaces and other hardware components. Users use software that utilizes the available hardware to solve certain tasks. However, different components have different energy consumptions. Standard PCs like laptops optimize energy consumptions by adapting the behavior of their hardware. Besides this, one must consider hardware access via software to optimize energy consumptions. Unfortunately, we do not have mature measurement approaches that are platform independent and reliable nor do we fully understand the tradeoffs between energy, performance, cost, and other metrics. This limits our ability to improve energy-efficiency without violating performance requirements and physical constraints.
EASED2013 provides a forum in which to present the latest research and to debate directions, challenges, and novel ideas about building energy-efficient software systems. In addition, researchers will have the opportunity to interact with one another, explore cross-cutting ideas, and develop new perspectives on the problem domain. Topics include but are not limited to:
  • Software based energy measurement
  • Energy metrics of software
  • Modeling Energy-Aware systems
  • Energy classification strategies
  • Strategies for optimizing energy consumptions
  • Protocols for energy aware data communication
  • Energy aware software engineering approaches
It is planed to announce the workshop internationally. Hence, the workshop language as well as the language of the papers will be English.
