Bristol EACO Workshop 3

In preparation for EACO W3, we created a summary of the EACO initiative and detailed the Intellectual Challenges that we are seeking to address.

The third Energy-Aware COmputing (EACO) workshop took place at the University of Bristol on October 19th. The special focus of this workshop was on Alternative Models for Energy-Aware COmputation with one session focused solely on Learning from Biology.

The purpose of the EACO series is to bring together researchers and engineers with interests in energy-aware computing for discussions to identify intellectual challenges that can be developed into collaborative research projects. We strive to go significantly beyond the state of the art.
