Luca Gammaitoni, form NiPS, speaks at the High Performance Computing (HPC) Info Day, organised by ETP4HPC and the European Commission (DG CONNECT) on behalf of the Public-Private Partnership (cPPP) on HPC with the local support of TERATEC, on Wednesday, April 9th, 2014 –in Paris.
Gammaitoni presented the ICT-Energy (www.ict-energy.eu) initiative.
Delft, 6-7 March 2014
The Landauer project (www.landauer-project.eu) held a consortium meeting in Delft (NL) on March 6-7.
The project, funded by the E.C. (FET Proactive G.A. 318287), is coordinated by NiPS and deals with operating ICT basic switches below the Landauer limit.

As usual NiPS Laboratory helds the annual meeting to review the 2013 activity and to plan for 2014.
The meeting occurs on Jan 14 at the Posta dei Donini resort in Perugia with the following program:
Review 2013: quello che abbiamo fatto
2014: quello che vogliamo fare
Participation on invtation only.

The NANOPOWER project has completed the third year of activity and has reached the end of the
It was initially conceived in order to address the powering issue in microscale

Paris, Oct 25-26, 2013
NiPS Lab members (from left to right: Francesco Cottone, Helios Vocca, Luca Gammaitoni) visited the ESIEE (Sensors, Multiphysics Components and Analysis Microsystems) group lead by prof Philippe Basset (rightmost in the picture) at the Université Paris-Est.
This visit is part of the ongoing bilateral project funded under the Galileo program.
The collaboration activity is focussed on the design, realization and test of mems scale vibrational energy harveters.
Berkeley, 28 Oct. 2013
L. Gammaitoni, NiPS Director, is an invited speaker at the Berkeley Symposium on Energy Efficient Electronic Systems.
He is presenting recent results from NiPS Laboratory activity on "Operating basic switches toward zero-power computing" as part of the FET Proactive LANDAUER project.

Heidelberg, 23 October, 2013
NiPS Laboratory is the coordinator of the new coordination action entitled "ICT-Energy" that has just celebrated the "kick-off" meeting at the university of Heidelberg.
The meeting, hosted by Prof. Vincent Heuveline and his staff, has seen the participation of all the 10 partners of this EC funded project under objective ICT-2013.9.8 (Coordinating communities, identifying new research topics for FET Proactive initiatives and fostering interdisciplinary dialogue).
ICT-Energy is aimed at creating a coordination activity among consortia involved in the ICT-ENERGY subject with specific aim at bringing together the existing “Toward Zero-Power ICT” community organized within the ZEROPOWER C.A. and the novel “MINECC” (Minimising energy consumption of computing to the limit.
The ten partners are:
