Energy Aware COmputing (EACO)
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 following sections provide information on past EACO workshops.
Workshop 1: Intellectual Challenges
This preliminary workshop established key intellectual challenges for EACO and was held on Wednesday 25th May 2011. A summary of the workshop, including attendees, proposed intellectual challenges and objectives moving forward, is available here: EACO W1 Summary (PDF, 82kB).
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.
Workshop 2: Beyond the state of the art
The second EACO workshop took place on 13th and 14th July 2011 with a list of more than 30 attendees from several international universities and the microelectronics industry. More information is available here.
Workshop 3: Alternative Models for Energy-Aware COmputation
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 W3 Intellectual Challenges (PDF, 88kB) document for the intellectual challenges that we are addressing. This took place at the University of Bristol on October 19th 2011. More information is available here.
Workshop 4: Industrial-Academic project partnerships
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. More information is available here.
Workshop 5: Industry-Academic Collaborations II: First results of working together
The fifth EACO workshop was held on 17th October 2012. The theme of this workshop was reporting on progress for the first collaborative research projects and taking energy transparency research to the next level. More information is available here.
Workshop 6: Towards Global Engagement
The sixth workshop in the EACO series was held on the Tues 26th and Wed 27th March 2013. The aim of this workshop was to identify new research partners on a global scale to further our contribution to the state of the art in Energy Aware Computing. More information is available here.
Workshop 7: Analysis Techniques for Energy Aware COmputing
On September 10th & 11th 2014 Bristol hosted the seventh EACO workshop, featuring presentations from the TACLe and EACO communities as well as invited guests. More information is available here.
Workshop 8: Workshop on the Future Energy in ICT Research Agenda
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.
