Climate Savers Computing Targets Seamless Interaction Between Power Management and Software Apps
ORLANDO, Fla., July 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Climate Savers Computing Initiative (CSCI), the global consortium focused on reducing the energy consumption and carbon footprint of computing equipment through power management and more energy efficient computing technologies, today announced that it will bring power management experts and software developers together in Orlando for a July 26 round-table at the IEEE Green Computing Conference.
The event will serve as a forum for interested participants to address areas where software applications may interfere with power management on PCs and networked computers, and to collaborate on solutions. The round-table is sponsored by the CSCI Computer Power Management Workgroup and will be hosted by Abhishek Agrawal, senior software engineer, Intel, and George O. Goodman, executive director, CSCI.
"The use of computer power management within organizations and homes is growing and is an important tool for reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions," said Goodman. "Developers invited to participate in the CSCI round-table will take a leadership role in helping to ensure power management and software applications can always work together."
CSCI is holding the round-table after members learned of potential power management performance issues when used in conjunction with various software applications. A call for input was issued to CSCI members and the global IT industry to get more information about how software may affect power management. The call for input remains open at http://bit.ly/jyANP3
Software developers interested in receiving an invitation to the July 26 round-table are encouraged to contact Goodman through his blog at http://bit.ly/jyANP3
