What and Who
Title:Energy-Efficient Algorithms
Speaker:Susanne Albers
coming from:TU Munich
Speakers Bio:Susanne Albers is a professor of computer science at TU Munich and chair of the Efficient
Algorithms Group. Previously she was a professor in the computer science department of
Humboldt University Berlin.

Her research interests include the design and analysis of algorithms (especially online and
approximation algorithms), algorithmic game theory, and algorithm engineering.

In 2008 she was awarded the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz prize of the Deutsche
Forschungsgemeinschaft. She is a member of the German National Academy of Sciences,
Leopoldina, and of the Academy of Science and Literature, Mainz, and a GI-Fellow.
Her current academic responsibilities include chief-editorship of ACM Trans. Algorithms,
and she is an elected member of the DFG Review Board (Fachkollegium) Informatics.

We study algorithmic techniques for energy savings in computer systems. Research
in this area concentrates mostly on two topics. (1) Power-down mechanisms: When
a system is idle, it can be transitioned into low power stand-by or sleep states. The
goal is to find state transition schedules that minimize the total energy consumption.
(2) Dynamic speed scaling: Many modern microprocessors can operate at variable speed.
Here the objective is to utilize the full speed/frequency spectrum of a processor so
as to optimize the consumed energy and possibly a second QoS measure.
This lecture investigates a variety of settings and presents recent research results.
The focus is on the design of algorithms that achieve a provably good performance.
