Dr. Jérôme Rocheteau (ICAM, Nantes, France) is giving a talk on 'How Green Are Java Best Coding Practices?'

Where and when? UCD CSI B1.08, 28th November 2013, 4PM.

Abstract: This presentation will explain how to measure and model the energy consumption of Java source codes. In the first part of the presentation, we will describe our experimental framework, consisting of a benchmark with several physical (e.g., power-meters) and logical sensors. We will then outline the advantages and disadvantages of both kinds of sensors, and describe a model where coding decisions are evaluated with respect to three cost functions - execution time, memory consumption and energy.

Jérôme Rocheteau, PhD is an associate professor since 2012 in the Institut Catholique d'Arts et Métiers (ICAM) in Nantes, France. He received a PhD in Computer Science in 2007 from University of Technology of Compiègne, France. From 2007 till 2012 he was research fellow in CUniversity of Technology of Compiègne and then University of Nantes. Prior to this, he got two Masters, in Philosophy (2000, Nantes) and Mathematical Logic (2002, Paris VII). Jérôme was technical lead for different european (FP7) and national projects, and he worked in the areas of formal verification for fault detection, and natural language processing.
