The Scientific Computing Team of the Computational Methods in Systems and Control Theory group at the MPI in Magdeburg is holding the second workshop entitled "Power-Aware Computing PACO2017" at the Max Planck Society's conference site Ringberg Castle. The workshop aims at bringing together experts in and close to the field in a 3-day event.

For the scientific program the workshop searches for contributions on any development that reports power or energy savings in a computational system. The interests include, but are not strictly limited to:
