HiPEAC/EC Workshop 'Energy Efficient Computing Systems'



Brussels, 27 Oct. 2014

L. Gammaitoni participated to the HiPEAC/EC Workshop 'EnergyEfficient Comp Systems, dynamic adaptation of QoS & approximate computing' by presenting a position statement on the future of the field based on the activities developed with the ICT-Energy C.A. (

From the workshop introduction: "Energy efficiency progress in recent years has been impressive, but mainly due to incremental changes. There are, however, innovative approaches which could potentially improve of orders of magnitude the performance / energy ratio of computing devices, allowing for “battery-free” computing, and thus enabling completely new applications e.g. in the Internet of Things domain while radically changing the game also at the data center level."
