Energy-aware computation 3-4 cr P
The course is held in the lecture hall T4 of the Computer Science
Building (Konemiehentie 2, Espoo) on Tuesdays at 14-16 o'clock. The
first meeting will take place on 22 January 2002.

The goal of this seminar is to consider the foundational issues in
computations where the limiting factor is the available energy
(and not time or memory, as usual). Such situations occur in various
contexts in mobile and ubiquitous computing. The seminar concentrates
on the algorithmic and software issues of energy-limited or energy-aware
computation, but also some physical issues are discussed.
You need only the basic knowledge
about algorithms and theory of computation.
Requirements for passing the
course: To pass the course with 3 credits,
you have to
- participate actively (be present in at least two out of three
- give one or two lectures on selected topics from the
To pass the course with 4 credits you have to additionally
- carry out a small research project on some of the subjects and
write a brief report on the results.
To pass with distinction, all the items in the previous lists should
be carried out excellently.
