How Green is Your Software?

MIPRO 2019 – Professor Csaba Szabó’s invited lecture

Professor Csaba Szabó from the Department of Computers and Informatics of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Informatics (FEEaI) at Technical University of Kosice will give the invited talk about one specific part of green software engineering within the Software and Systems Engineering Conference at MIPRO 2019.

This lecture will focus on the fact that like with Bio products, the world is developing to become a more nature-aware ecosystem. The green initiative defines two main goals: reduce energy consumption and use basic natural sources in electrical energy production. Being a "different kind of" business would not excuse software engineering and industry for taking no action. This talk pays particular attention on measuring and improvement of energy consumption of software and its development processes, where each development phase plays a significant role. Considering any software development process, the energy is being consumed while problem analysis, constructing and evaluating the code and deploying the solution as well. Specific software or hardware tools have to be used to implement energy consumption monitoring for software run as part of and/or at the top of selected operating systems and for evaluation of the measured energy consumption. Usual usage scenarios are to monitor energy usage of selected software, which one is called energy profiling. Professor Szabó will also talk about the possibility to use these tools to measure how green is the process that produces or evolves these programs.
Energy profiling is only a part of green software engineering as the goal should not be to measure without trying to improve the quality of the system. During the talk, there will be also selected improvement techniques discussed.

Csaba Szabó is an Associate Professor at the Department of Computers and Informatics of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Informatics (FEEaI) at Technical University of Kosice. He graduated (MSc) with distinction at the Department of Computers and Informatics of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Informatics (FEEaI) at Technical University of Kosice in 2003. He obtained his PhD in Program and Information Systems at the FEEaI at Technical University of Kosice in 2007. Since 2006 he is affiliated with the Department of Computers and Informatics, FEEaI, Technical University of Kosice. Currently he is involved in research in the field of green software engineering, behavioral description of software, information systems and web services, software and test evolution, and testing and evaluation of software.

He is a member of the John von Neumann Computer Society (NJSZT, Hungary) and the Slovak Society for Applied Cybernetics and Informatics (SSAKI). Currently he is also leading the ERASMUS+ KA203 - Strategic partnership for higher education project No. 2017-1-SK01-KA203-035402: "Focusing Education on Composability, Comprehensibility and Correctness of Working Software".

     Smart Island and Regions Lab

    Partnership Development Conference

    Sept 30 - Oct 2 2019

    Mljet Island, Croatia


    The one of the objectives of the conference is to start dialog on the topic of Smart Island as a Lab for social and technological innovation for comprehensive & sustainable living and tourism development.

    The topic is very relevant for Croatia, Mediterranean region and several Scandinavian- Baltic countries such Finland, Sweden, Estonia, Norway, Denmark.

    The one of the central ideas of this strategy is to develop a multidisciplinary collaboration between key stakeholders and research community (nationally and internationally) to help solving complex problems and challenges of smart regions and islands. It includes regional development, economic growth, infrastructure and services, environment, social cohesion, immigration and the sustainable tourism.

    We are putting forward the scientific systematic approach, extensive use of Smart ICT, socio-technological integration, the use of advanced innovation methods and tools such as Living Labs.
