ICEP is a research gathering of some of the leading international researchers in the field of energy and performance modelling.

The topics of the colloquium range from energy measurement in large virtualised computing environments and data centres to optimisation on mobile platforms; energy profiles in hardware devices to algorithmic impact on environmental metrics.

One of the main aims of the event is to provide a platform for PhD students and early-career researchers to get an introduction to and accelerate their understanding of this relatively new field. To this end, we are very pleased to present a set of keynote tutorials presented by leading researchers in the field. Additionally, many participants are taking the opportunity to showcase their on-going work. All of this will enable a broad perspective on performance and energy research effort to be presented.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our keynote speaker, Francine Bennett, CEO and co-founder at Mastodon C who gave the EFL/ICEP keynote on 30th May and also our specialist invited speakers:

  • Danilo Ardagna, Politecnico di Milano
  • Ranveer Chandra, Microsoft Research, Redmond
  • Yuan Chen, HP Labs, Palo Alto
  • Erol Gelenbe, Imperial College London
  • Isi Mitrani, Newcastle University
  • Guillaume Pierre, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam
  • Evgenia Smirni, College of William and Mary, Virgina
  • Miklos Telek, Technical University of Budapest
  • Adam Wierman, Caltech

We would also like to thank our generous sponsors Imperial College London and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council who have funded not only the event itself, but also generous travel awards to some 20 people, many of whom would not otherwise have been able to come. We are very grateful to have had considerable support from the Energy Futures Lab who have organised the EFL/ICEP keynote talk, to which you are all invited.

Lastly, we are very pleased that some 70 people have registered for the event and we hope this will reinforce a growth in the area of performance and energy modelling and analysis in the next few years. We very much hope that you are able to make good use of this opportunity and that fruitful collaborations and research avenues emerge as a result.
