Why is my computer heating up so much?

In Europe, the Coordination Action (CA) “ICT-Energy” (involving 10 European partners) developed a significant activity in the broad field of ICT energy efficiency. The foundation of this action is the recognition that two apparently unrelated problems (to lower energy consumption in ICT and to improve energy harvesting technologies for powering autonomous devices) are indeed rooted into the very same scientific background: energy transformation processes at micro and nanoscales.

Dr. Kerstin Eder at CDNLive EMEA 2015

Dr. Kerstin Eder from the University of Bristol has been invited to talk at CDNLive EMEA 2015, the Cadence User Conference to be held in Munich, Germany, on April 27th - 29th.

Her talk will be the AC04 on April 28th: Whole Systems Energy Transparency.

She will also present and promote the ENTRA and ICT-Energy projects.

F. Orfei and L. Gammaitoni visit the Hitachi Laboratory in Cambridge

Cambridge, Feb. 6th, 2015

Francesco Orfei and Luca Gammaitoni from NiPS Lab, University of Perugia, visited the Hitachi Research Laboratory in Cambridge (UK).
During the visit the Hitachi Lab director, David Williams, presented the activities of the laboratory and discussed the participation of his laboratory to the ICT-Energy consortium, coordinated by NiPS.

Hitachi Cambridge, that is coordinating the "TOLOP" research project funded by FET,  is specifically interested in very low-power novel microprocessors.

The ICT-Energy perspective

It is a known fact that the amount of power dissipated into heat during computation is becoming the main limitation toward the realization of new and more powerful computers. The discussion on the development of high performance computing initiative identified the reduction of energy dissipated as one of the two strategic challenges for the future in the field.
