EACO Workshop Series
The Energy Aware COmputing workshop series was initiated in February 2011 by Dr. Kerstin Eder & Prof. David May of the Microelectronics Research Group. It is supported by the University of Bristol Institute for Advanced Studies and industry sponsorship.Its aim 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 current state of the art.
The Workshop on the Future Energy in ICT Research Agenda brought together academic and industrial leaders to focus on the challenge of energy consumption in ICT. The main workshop event featured presentations on current challenges and research in low energy of ICT from fundamental physics to HPC, and provided networking opportunities to discuss where attention should be focused. The future landscape identified by these discussions will shape the ICT Energy Research Agenda, recommending objectives and fields for future research and investment to be directed towards.
See the ICT Energy website for more details.
On September 10th & 11th Bristol will host the seventh EACO workshop, featuring presentations from the TACLe and EACO communities as well as invited guests. For more information, see the W7 event page.
The sixth workshop in the EACO series will be held on the Tues 26th and Wed 27th March 2013. The aim of this workshop is to identify new research partners on a global scale to further our contribution to the state of the art in Energy Aware COmputing.
The fifth EACO workshop is scheduled for 17th October 2012. The theme of this workshop is reporting on progress for the first collaborative research projects and taking energy transparency research to the next level. More details will be made available in due course.
The fourth EACO workshop was used to initiate a series of projects addressing the Intellectual Challenges (ICs) put forward in previous workshops. It was held on 18th April 2012.
The third EACO workshop had a special focus of on alternative models for Energy-Aware COmputation with one session focused solely on Learning from Biology. See our EACO initiative summary for the intellectual challenges that we are addressing. This took place at the University of Bristol on October 19th.
The second EACO workshop took place on 13th and 14th July with a list of more than 30 attendees from several international universities and the microelectronics industry.
This half-day workshop brought together researchers with interests in energy-aware computing for initial round table discussions to identify intellectual challenges that can be developed into cross-disciplinary research collaborations.
