About the book:

This volume provides a comprehensive state of the art overview of a series of advanced trends and concepts that have recently been proposed in the area of green information technologies engineering as well as of design and development methodologies for models and complex systems architectures and their intelligent components. The contributions included in the volume have their roots in the authors’ presentations, and vivid discussions that have followed the presentations, at a series of workshop and seminars held within the international TEMPUS-project GreenCo project in United Kingdom, Italy, Portugal, Sweden and the Ukraine, during 2013-2015 and at the 1st – 5th Workshops on Green and Safe Computing (GreenSCom) held in Russia, Slovakia and the Ukraine. The book presents a systematic exposition of research on principles, models, components and complex systems  and a description of industry- and society-oriented aspects of the green IT engineering. A chapter-oriented structure has been adopted for this book following a “vertical view” of the green IT, from hardware (CPU and FPGA) and software components to complex industrial systems.

The 15 chapters of the book are grouped into five sections:

(1) Methodology and Principles of Green IT Engineering for Complex Systems

(2) Green Components and Programmable Systems

(3) Green Internet Computing, Cloud and Communication Systems

(4) Modeling and Assessment of Green Computer Systems and Infrastructures

(5) Green PLC-Based Systems for Industry Applications

Final of the Battle of Students IT startups

On March 20, 2015 the final IT-startup competition “IT-Eureka! Ukraine” was held in Odessa, Ukraine, in the frame of 1st Ukrainian Forum of IT-students’ Innovation. More than 120 students, teachers and representatives of Ukrainian innovative start-ups and IT enterprise took part in the Forum. The number of accepted projects is 444.

This event was a continuation of the battle for students from Computer Systems of Networks department of “KhAI”, started last year in October.

The jury of the competition:

  • Hans Lundberg (Vice-President of the European Academy of Management EURAM, Brussels, Belgium)
  • Niklas Malmros (President of Sigma Technology Solutions AB, Vahyo, Sweden)
  • Vladimir Rogovsky (Director of Business Incubator WannaBiz, Odessa, Ukraine)
  • Viktor Kauk (associate professor of Department of Software Engineering at Kharkiv National University of Radioelectronics, Kharkiv, Ukraine)
  • Natalia Potapova (manager of educational programs of Sigma Software, Kharkiv, Ukraine).

A team from the Department of Computer Systems and Networks of “KhAI” with following members: Anton Zhmyrov, Anton Lapko, Ihor Diachenko, Zhanna Shelimanova, Oroma Roseline Ohochukwu with  mentors Olga Yanovskaya and Maxim Yanovsky took II place with the project  «YouDrop: Architecture and software tools for building the infrastructure of distributed cloud» and received a special prize from companies GeeksLab and FlyElephant.

This event was organised with the support of the following TEMPUS projects:

In February 2015, from 15th till 19th, the International joint winter school WINT 2015 was organized by representatives of consortium of TEMPUS GREENCOTEMPUS CABRIOLETTEMPUS SEREIN.

WINT 2015 School took place simultaneously in three cities of Ukraine - Chernivtsi, Khmelnitsky and Uzhhorod.

The school was organized together by National Aerospace University named after N.E. Zhukovsky “KhAI” Yuriy Fedkovych Chernivtsi National University and Khmelnitsky National University.

Such type of events, like joint meeting & training, school, and WINT 2015 particularly, is a great possibility to organize the synergy of both projects and to reach better results of higher quality due to collaboration.

During WINT 2015 results of monitoring сonducted by National Erasmus+ Office in Ukraine of TEMPUS CABRIOLET and TEMPUS SEREIN projects was discussed and activities for further improvements has been planned.

Participants from TEMPUS GREENCO and TEMPUS SEREIN consortium presented developed teaching programmes for MSc and PhD students and Lifelong learning modules for developed staff in area of green computing and communication and cyber security.
