5th Workshop “Energy Aware Software-Engineering and Development” (EASED@EnviroInfo2016)
Software-Engineering aims at developing and evolving software systems in an economic manner, considering project specific needs and quality goals. One of these quality goals, which become more and more important, is “energy efficiency of software systems”. Improving the energy consumption of mobile devices will not only increase the uptime and battery lifespan, it will also improve the carbon footprint. Viewing energy efficiency, is not only restricted to mobile devices, it also affects e.g. embedded systems and data centers, where energy is a major factor in costs and environmental burden.
Next to serious and ongoing efforts in hardware design, on operating system level, and by optimized code generation, software engineering techniques also contribute to optimizing energy consumption by improving software design: wasting energy can be avoided by e.g. removing energy code smells, improving data-base queries and storage methodologies, exchanging fast, but energy consuming components by slower but more energy efficient alternatives.
The EASED workshop series on Energy Aware Software-Engineering and Development, which will be held at EnviroInfo for the 5th time, focusses on the intensive presentation and discussion of methods and technologies to optimize the energy consumption of systems by improving the used software. Among others, these techniques include techniques
EASED@EnviroInfo requests for papers according the EnviroInfo paper style, e.g. presenting
Proceedings of the workshop will be published within the EnviroInfo proceedings.
Workshop submissions will be handled by the EnviroInfo submission system. Submissions will be selected based on their scientific contribution to the workshop´s topics and their potential to stimulate intensive discussions on the energy-efficiency on software intensive systems.
The EASED workshop series are carried out as discussion-intensive workshops, to provoke intensive collaborations among the participants, so discussions within the presentations are welcome. Next to presenting papers, further discussion sessions will be planned to set up and establish intensive collaborations between the participants, maybe to initiate further common research activities.
To allow for an industrial view on Energy Efficiency of Software Systems it is intended to invite an industrial representative for giving a keynote.
