HiPEAC/EC Workshop 'Energy Efficient Computing Systems'



Brussels, 27 Oct. 2014

L. Gammaitoni participated to the HiPEAC/EC Workshop 'EnergyEfficient Comp Systems, dynamic adaptation of QoS & approximate computing' by presenting a position statement on the future of the field based on the activities developed with the ICT-Energy C.A. (

From the workshop introduction: "Energy efficiency progress in recent years has been impressive, but mainly due to incremental changes. There are, however, innovative approaches which could potentially improve of orders of magnitude the performance / energy ratio of computing devices, allowing for “battery-free” computing, and thus enabling completely new applications e.g. in the Internet of Things domain while radically changing the game also at the data center level."

L. Gammaitoni visits the Micro Robotic Lab in Pontedera, Italy



Nov. 3, 2014 - Pontedera, Italy

Luca Gammaitoni, Nips director, visited the Center for Micro-Biorobotics of the IIT.

The Center for Micro-BioRobotics (CMBR) is located in Pontedera (Pisa) and it is part of the network of the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) whose headquarters are in Genova. CMBR began its scientific activity at the end of 2009, with the aim to perform advanced research and to develop innovative methodologies, robotic technologies, new materials, and advanced components at the micro/mesoscale.

During the visit Prof. L. Gammaitoni discussed possible collaboration between NiPS and the IIT Center with Dr. B. Mozzolai, Center coordinator, on the topic of micro scale energy transformation.
