Marina Zapater attends as speaker to UCAmI 2012.
The main goal of this conference is to provide a discussion forum where researchers and practitioners on Ubiquitous Computing and Ambient Intelligence can meet, disseminate and exchange ideas and problems, identify some of the key issues related to these topics, and explore together possible solutions and future works.
The Ubiquitous Computing (UC) idea envisioned by Weiser in 1991, has recently evolved to a more general paradigm known as Ambient Intelligence (AmI). Ambient Intelligence then represents a new generation of user-centred computing environments aiming to find new ways to obtain a better integration of the information technology in everyday life devices and activities.
Marina has presented our first results within the GreenDISC project, proposing several research lines that target the power optimization in computing systems. In particular, we deal with two novel and highly differentiated computer paradigms that, however, coexist and interact in the current application scenarios: the Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) and the high-performance computing in Data Centers (DC).
