4th Workshop on "Energy-Aware Software Engineering and Development"
Paper submission deadline: June 20, 2014
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 becomes more and more important, is the “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 centres, where energy is a major factor in costs and environmental burden.
Next to serious and ongoing efforts in hardware design, at the 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, replacing fast, but energy-consuming components by slower but more energy efficient alternatives or by transferring functionality to the cloud, where integrated energy optimization on all technical levels can be applied. This list gives only some examples of optimizing energy consumption on software level. These and further approaches will be discussed at EASED.
The EASED workshop series on Energy-Aware Software Engineering and Development focusses on the intensive presentation and discussion of methods and technologies to optimize the energy consumption of systems by improving software components in software-intensive, embedded systems. Among others, these include techniques to:
· Detect energy code-smells,
· Optimize code,
· Avoid energy waste,
· Measure energy consumption caused by software, and
· Model software-caused energy behaviour of embedded systems.
EASED@EnviroInfo follows up on the Workshop on Developing Energy-Aware Software Systems (EEbS 2012), held at the annual GI Conference in September 2012 (http://www.uni-weimar.de/cms/medien/mobile-media/eebs-2012.html), 2nd workshop on Energy-Aware Software Engineering and Development (EASED@BUIS), held at BUIS Tage in April 2013 (http://www.se.uni-oldenburg.de/eased2013), and the 3rd workshop on Energy-Aware Software Engineering and Development (EASED@GI 2013), held together with the workshop "UINW - Umweltinformatik zwischen Nachhaltigkeit und Wandel" at the GI Conference in September 2013 (http://www.se.uni-oldenburg.de/preprocess.php?seite=61345.html&include0=generated-content/gi2013.html).
Accepted papers for ESEAD@EnviroInfo will be published in the workshop section of the EnvrioInfo 2014 proceedings. Authors of the best paper at ESEAD@EnviroInfo will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper to the "EnviroInfo 2014 Selected Papers" publication issued by Springer.
Authors are encouraged to submit their papers (6 pages following the EnviroInfo Layout (http://enviroinfo2014.informatik.uni-oldenburg.de/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/EnviroInfo2014Format.dotx) not later than June 6, 2014 through Easychair (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=enviroinfo2014).
