ICT-Energy Community Workshop - Barcelona, 23-25 April 2014

ICT-Energy is a consortium among research groups interested in the role of energy in ICT devices.

 The workshop will allow extended discussions and therefore foster cooperation between the project partners and the groups participating to the consortia.

The first day of the meeting is devoted to a short training course with 4 lectures on basic, introductory aspects of the science of ICT-Energy.

The workshop is open to the participation of all the interested people.

Please confirm your participation to emma.torrella [@] bsc.es .
