Green Computing is the science of designing carbon-efficient hardware and software as well as the use of computing to make physical infrastructure more carbon-efficient. This seminar will focus both on 'greening of computing'---the design of green servers, storage and networks---as well on 'computing for greening'---the use of sensor networks and computing for estimating and reducing the carbon footprint of physical infrastructure such as buildings. We will also cover related topics such as green energy, e.g., solar and wind, and smart-grids, and their use in the computing context. A collection of papers describing the state-of-the art in the field will be made available to students. Students will be required to present and review papers, participate in class discussions, and complete a project on a relevant topic of interest. Course grades will be based on class presentations and participation, written paper reviews, and an independent research project. 1 or 3 credits (the 3 credit version will require a course project).
Grades will be determined by the project (3 credit version only) , class presentations and class participation.
We will be using GoToMeeting for web conferencing for the Green Computing class.
