The doctoral symposium is a part of ICT-Energy workshop (2015). This symposium is a great opportunity for PhD students to present their thesis work to a broad audience in the ICT community from both industry and academia. The forum may also help students to establish contacts for entering into research related to minimization of energy from various layers. In addition, representatives from industry and academia get a glance of state-of-the-art in the energy minimization field.  Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Power- and thermal-aware algorithms, software and hardware

- Low-power electronics and systems

- Power-efficient multi/many-core chip design

- Sensing and monitoring

- Power and thermal behavior and control

- Data centers optimization

- Smart grid and microgrids

- Power-efficient delivery and cooling

- Reliability, life-cycle analysis of IT equipment

- Renewable energy models and prediction

- Matching energy supply and demand

- Smart transportation and electric vehicles

- Smart buildings and urban computing

- Energy harvesting, storage, and recycling



The following two classes of students are eligible: students who are close to finishing or second year in their Ph.D thesis work and post-doctoral candidates.



  • A presentation (25 mins) at the Doctoral Forum
  • Contacts to professionals from industry and academia
