The Centre of Research Excellence for Advanced Cooperative Systems (ACROSS) and Department of Electronic Systems and Information Processing invite you to the research seminar:

“Technologies for Energy Efficiency Systems - From Energy Harvesting to Efficient Data-centers in Smart Grids”

held by Prof. Davide Brunelli, University of Trento, Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science, Embedded Electronics and Computing Systems Group, Trento, Italy.

The seminar will take place on MondayJuly 8, 2013, starting at 13:00 in D-160 at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing.

More about the seminar can be found in the detailed news content.


Public administrations, enterprises and citizens are increasingly going green and are looking to the information technology as the way to reduce energy consumption and to become more environmentally responsible in all human activities. The talk presents some recent disruptive ICT technologies for improving the Energy Efficiency in several human activities. In particular, we will address from Energy Harvesting for Energy Neutral Embedded Systems to Distributed and Pervasive Sensing for minimizing building energy footprints; and finally we tackle to role of Smart Grids in Low-carbon demand Urban Data Centers. 
The goals of the talk are to survey the most relevant research domains; to present various perspectives and underlying technologies; and finally, to  identify the most important challenges and research themes.
