Budapest, 6 May (Friday) 10:45 – 12:15.

The fet11 conference programme will feature 30 scientific sessions of which six are dedicated to FET Flagship Pilots. From the more than 80 submitted proposals the programme committee has selected the most exciting. Among them the Scientific Session proposed by NiPS on

Sustainable ICT: Micro and Nanoscale Energy Management

Content: ICT energy isues form the basis of this session which brings together international experts interested in the realization of efficient low-power ICT devices. What are the basic mechanisms behind the heat production and how can we take advantage of the fluctuations instead of avoiding them? The aim is to understand the energy management physical mechanisms at nanoscale with a view to setting the bases for a new thermodynamics of ICT devices.
