2013 DAC Workshop on Embedded Systems for Energy-Efficient Smart Infrastructures (ESSI)


 Event Date: Sunday, June 2, 2013


Smart infrastructures that provide energy-efficient, reliable and secure services are currently hot topics under discussion by government, the media, and the researchers. They can be found in many different applications at different scales, such smart wireless networks, smart meters for smart homes, and smart data centers. While significantly different in contexts, those applications share one thing in common: they need embedded systems to optimize the performance based on the information/data gathered from the meters/sensors. Depending on the level of smartness, those embedded systems can use the gathered information/data to help improve future designs, or to assist operators to with decision making, or to automatically adjust operations.

While smart infrastructures can serve for many purposes, this workshop is particularly interested in those with energy efficiency as the primary target. Of course, various other factors such as reliability, security, privacy, flexibility and controllability should also be considered. Those metrics together impose stringent constraints on the embedded systems that operate the smart infrastructures. Particular challenges include, but not limited to, the information/data collection without triggering privacy and security issues, the efficient data fusion and analysis, the real-time response design, the robustness in the presence of contingencies, and software/hardware co-design.
