The energy consumption of ICT is growing beyond control, and its environmental impact now surpasses that of civil aviation. Software developers have little knowledge about the impact of software over energy consumption. This hackathon is intended for developers that are also sustainability geeks. They will be challenged to improve the energy efficiency of an application, to be remotely deployed on the Green Lab at the VU

|Technical Information||1. The energy consumption of ICT is growing beyond control and its environmental impact now surpasses that of civil aviation. We need to address the challenge of making ICT more energy-efficient, both in hardware and in software. 2. Software developers have little knowledge about the impact of software over energy consumption. However, this can be extremely relevant, both on mobile devices and in data centers. In this challenge participants will have to make an application more energy-efficient|
Below is the evaluation criteria that will be used by the jury to select the winner(s) of the challenge.
|Evaluation Criteria||In every moment during the hackathon, participants will be able to upload their applications to the Green Lab of the VU, to see real-time data visualizations of the energy consumption of their applications, using the power meters in our Lab. The applications will be tested using a specific benchmark. At the end, the application consuming less energy will be selected as a winner. In case of similar energy consumption, performance will be evaluated.|
|Jury||Dr. Giuseppe Procaccianti, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam Prof. Patricia Lago, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (More members to be announced)|
- The winning team will receive a bol.com coupon of 100€. The prizes for the Green Software Challenges are sponsored by SURFsara, a subsidiary of SURF, the collaborative ICT organisation for Dutch education and research. They offer students, lecturers and scientists in the Netherlands access to the best possible internet and ICT facilities. Sustainable ICT is one of their priority areas. In addition to greater energy efficiency and the reduction of ICT-based CO2 emissions, the objective is to use - 0.00 €
