Title: Towards energy efficient QoS
Location: Meeting room
Type: Research Result
Speaker: Erol Gelenbe
Often, papers regarding energy savings in computer systems
and networks discuss average power consumption (in watts) which is
easier to measure and understand than actual energy consumption
(in joules or watt-hours). Furthermore not much attention has yet been devoted
to energy efficiency in conjunction with the quality of service (QoS) delivered
to users. Based on our own work on different architectures including
packet network routing, systems that include multiple servers, cloud computing
and mobile devices, we will show how energy consumption together with
QoS can be optimised for end users.
Erol Gelenbe’s curent projects, funded by EU FP7, UK EPSRC and UK MoD,
cover both energy savings in ICT and network security. His recent papers in the
Physical Review and ACM/IEEE journals and conferences, deal with performance and
energy considerations, but also with gene regulatory networks and protein alignment.
He is an IEEE and ACM Fellow, and a member of several national academies
of science and of engineering. He received the ACM SIGMETRICS Life-Time
Achievement Award, the France-Telecom Prize of the French Academy of Sciences,
and several honoris causa doctorates, and decorations from France and Italy.
