Lab Seminar with Anne-Cécile Orgerie (IRISA): Energy consumption and environmental impact of computing centres

We will welcome Anne-Cécile Orgerie, CR CNRS at IRISA, Rennes, for a LIRIS seminar on the environmental impact of computing centres, on Tuesday, September 13th, at 10am in Nautibus' room C2.

On 13/09/2022 at 10:00 to 11:00. Nautibus, C2
Informations contact : Nicolas Bonneel.


Computing centres are becoming increasingly large, with digital services hosted all over the world and often belonging to complex systems, themselves using many other services and hardware resources. This increase is accompanied by an alarming growth in digital infrastructure and its energy consumption. Despite the complexity of these systems, it is important to understand how they consume energy in order to chase wasted joules. This talk will discuss measuring the energy consumption of Cloud infrastructures, deriving models from these measurements and implementing these models in simulation tools that can be used to assess their energy consumption and estimate their environmental impact.

Anne-Cécile Orgerie is a CNRS researcher at IRISA in Rennes. She obtained her PhD in computer science in 2011 in Lyon. Since 2012, she has been part of the Myriads team working on large-scale distributed systems, Cloud and Edge computing. Her research topics focus on measurement, modelling, simulation and reduction of energy consumption of distributed systems. She is currently the director of the EcoInfo GDS which studies the environmental impacts of digital technology.
