Host: Professor Anna Scaglione


Power is increasingly becoming a central issue in designing systems, from embedded systems to data centers. The amount of energy consumed by data centers has doubled in recent years and minimizing power consumption is one of the primary technical challenges that today's IT organizations face. At the same time, the utility of mobile devices including laptops, netbooks, smartphones, tablets etc. is severely constrained by their battery life. This presentation will cover various aspects of power aware computing and energy usage in systems ranging from tablets/smartphones to data centers. The presentation will emphasize on the role of software in achieving overall platform energy efficiency.
