Optimization of application and system software for energy efficiency is of ecological, economical, and technical importance - and still challenging. Deficiency in adequate tooling support is a major issue, especially for system designers who build new energy-aware computing systems. This talk discusses today's best practices in energy-optimization of software, and shows how software developers benefit from recent research on energy-aware programming techniques.


Timo Hönig is a PhD candidate at Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) and a research fellow at the System Software Group at FAU. He previously was a Senior Software Engineer at SUSE Linux GmbH. During an internship at IBM Research he worked in the embedded hardware development group.

With almost a decade of experience in systems research and systems programming, his work at the System Software Group at FAU focuses on energy-aware programming and energy-aware systems.

Based on Timo's broad engagement in the open source community, he maintains several open-source projects and he writes articles for the Linux Magazine.
