Brief Bio
Dr. Karim Djemame is a Senior Lecturer at the School of Computing at the University of Leeds (UK). He sits on a number of international programme committees for Grid/Cloud middleware, computer networks and performance evaluation. He is currently the Scientific and Technical Manager of the EU-funded projects ASCETiC and TANGO, which address the issues of energy efficiency in clouds and heterogeneous parallel architectures environments. He had previously led many research projects including the Leeds element of the e-Science DAME project with industrial partners, Rolls-Royce, Data Systems & Solutions, Cybula, and its follow-on projects BROADEN, GridPPT, ISQoS, EKT-SLA, and STRAPP, looking at Grid/Cloud systems architecture, resource brokering and performance issues. He was also Principal Investigator of the EU-funded projects AssessGrid and OPTIMIS. The main research area of Dr. Djemame is distributed systems, including system architectures, energy efficiency, resource management, and performance evaluation.


The workshop aims to bring together researchers, practitioners, system administrators, software developers, and others interested in the latest advances of energy efficient clouds. Special focus will be on novel methods and tools to support software developers aiming to optimise energy efficiency and minimise the carbon footprint resulting from designing, developing, deploying and running software at the different layers of the Cloud computing stack. We call on to researchers and professionals to present their latest work on addressing such related challenges and to share their experiences and best practices in the deployment of such systems. We particularly welcome papers on relevant software engineering approaches and practical guidance on enterprise-wide software deployment in the cloud environment, together with real-world case studies.
