NiPS Summer School 2014 "ICT-Energy: Energy management at micro and nanoscales for future ICT"

Perugia (Italy) - July 14-18, 2014
The Noise in Physical System Laboratory is glad to announce the fifth edition of NiPS Summer School devoted to "ICT-Energy: Energy management at micro and nanoscales for future ICT".
The school is organized into 3 specialized schools, through 5 days.
In the first 3 days there will be common courses (General sessions). Day 4 and 5 are devoted to specialized courses under the 3 following parallel sessions:
- ICT-Energy summer school
- Landauer summer school
- PHIDIAS summer school
The school, supported by European Commission under the FET Proactive research project LANDAUER (, PHIDIAS ( and the Coordination Action ICT-Energy (, is open to graduate students, post-docs, young researchers, and in general to all scientists interested in the physical foundations and practical applications of energy management at micro and nanoscales in computing processes.
The School is organized in Perugia (IT) during the same week of the international jazz festival Umbria Jazz 2014.
Previous editions of NiPS Summer School have seen in four years the participation of more then 100 students and young researchers from all over the world.
